Mob Match

Hi - couldn’t see a thread with details of the mob match. This link seems to have details:

Clare and I are both planning on running. Will someone be bringing along the race numbers?

Re: Mob Match

I will be bringing the race numbers as Ellie is unfortunately unable to be there. If you are a paid up member of the club, and have a club vest to race in, you are welcome to run this even if you haven't run any of the other races.

It would be great to get a really good turnout for this - as Karen said, this is a race in its own right and there is a trophy to be won I believe. We should also have several individual trophy winners and team trophies to take home on the night I think, so a big turnout would be fantastic!

Re: Mob Match

sad I can't come to this as Gary is away for the day and won't be back in time...:-(

Re: Mob Match

Parking: A limited amount of car parking will be available on the perimeter of the
playing fields at the Rugby Club. This may not be available if it has been raining and the grass is soft. There are over 500 spaces in the car parks at Stanborough Park by the lakes. These are only 5 minutes walk from the start, 10 minutes from the Race HQ. These are payment by number plate
recognition. There is limited potential for parking in the residential roads near to the Race HQ. Please do not even try to park in Hobbs Way or Colgrove and please avoid upsetting residents by parking inconsiderately. Please share cars

As Linda said, I'm at work tomorrow evening, so sadly won't be able to join you all for our victory lap! Enjoy!! Ellie

Re: Mob Match

Good luck all and enjoy the trophy celebrations. Sorry I cannot be there.

Re: Mob Match

Just to confirm, we are back at the Rugby club tomorrow and not the School?

Re: Mob Match

Can Ellie - or anyone else - confirm, as a matter of urgency, exactly where the race is taking place tonight, please? The info James posted from Trent Park's website gives different information from what Ellie has posted - are they changing back to the old venue at the Rugby club, or are we back at the one that was new last year? I can't see anything on our MWL page or on RunHerts website or FB page either.

Need to know asap as we don't want everyone going to the wrong place tonight!! :scream:

Re: Mob Match

URGENT!! I've just contacted GCR and they have confirmed that the venue and course for tonight IS AT SIR FREDERIC OSBORN SCHOOL - SO PLEASE DON'T GO TO THE RUGBY CLUB!!!

Please use the information James originally posted from the Trent Park website.

See you all tonight! :smiley:

Re: Mob Match

Hi Linda,

The Trent park website says go to the rugby club.


Re: Mob Match
