It’s race week! :raised_hands:
Please find below the details regarding the first race.
There is also a Strava event with the course on here. If your on Strava, and you’re attending, please visit the page and click I’m in!
Please post below to arrange lift shares. :car:
There are reports of Bedford bringing 70+ runners, so let’s do our best to buddy each of them up with a Squirrel 🐿 (in front of each).
Please can I have a couple of volunteers to complete the score sheet too?

Really enjoyed this course last season, i thought it was the best one we ran. Can't wait to get back & begin our title defence!
Just got some additional reminder points through from the league...
Important points for the season
Please ensure your runners are aware of these:
Hills make us stronger! Bringing my support team for this one 😀
I'd like to go and would like a lift if possible...... as Stu not able to attend this one he had already signed up for Stevenage Half
Looking forward to rolling round this....
I’m going straight from London so can’t lift share I’m afraid. As i was unable to run any last season I will of completed John’s Challenge from the previous post. Thanks for organising John, looking forward to it 🏃♂️🏃♂️🐾🐾🐾
I hope to be running this, but even if I'm not I will still be driving there and can take three passengers, leaving from Hitchin - post on here if you want a lift.
Linda - a lift would be great and I can drive next time?
Hayley - I can give you a lift.
Two more seats available....
I am in and looking forward to it.... some kind of little hill in the middle I seem to remember ? Anyway John, thanks for organising and where are my XX shoes?
Thankyou James w for the very kind offer unfortunately I've been asked to be on call all weekend to cover someone which means having to stay close by so I'll have to miss this one 😔
Linda, can I join u too please. I can drive us to another race.
Pete and I are looking forward to it:)
Lindsay and Paul - you're in. Paul - are you able to get to mine? Lindsay I can pick you up at the usual place.
Hi Linda. If you still have a space could I get a lift to the XC please. I'm in Hitchin. Thanks Russ.
Please note that the course will be run in reverse this year due to fear of congestion at early pinch point.
yes I can Linda, just let me know a time.
Russ - whereabouts in Hitchin are you?
Really looking forward to this one!
I'm seeing family for lunch locally afterwards, so would only be able to offer a one-way lift unfortunately – which I'm sure isn't much use to anyone!
I'm on Gosmore Road not very far from the Three Moorhens roundabout on A602. Happy to trot to a convenient pick up if it helps.
That's fine Russ - I can pick you up at the Moorhens car park if that's ok? Picking Lindsay up just down the road from there anyway.
Paul - would you be able to pick Joy up and bring her over to mine as she is coming with us?
Paul and Joy - I'd suggest leaving from mine at 8.40am, then we can pick up Lindsay at about 8.45 at the mini roundabout at the top of Bridge Street, then pick Russ up at the Moorhens.
Is this ok for everyone?
My mobile no. is 0 7 8 6 0 8 8 9 4 8 2 (without the gaps, obvs. :wink: )
John, when they say run in reverse that's not clear to me as I've run it both ways in the past! I asked on FB and the response was ambiguous - do they mean same as last year?
Yes thats perfect thanks. See you then
Is there a spare seat from letchworth at all pls?
James W - could I have a space in your car, if there is still one going? Thanks.
Lindsay, yes. Also last year, you went down the really steep hill in the quarry (at the 2k point on the map but is now near the end) and I had to apply the brakes. Now you go up it you can benefit from all the downhill bits elsewhere so it makes it a bit 'easier' (sort of!) overall
Rob - yes. Will pick you up at yours at 8.30. Then we'll collect Clare Hooley and James Keogh.
James D - looks like my car is full, but I would squeeze you in if you are still short of a lift by this evening. I'll check back here around 8.30pm.
Excellent - thanks James W!
I’m sorted for transport now
Have arranged use of the car.
Ok James D - see you there.
Are there any car lifts spare? , apologies for late post.
I have 3 spaces Dan
Was planning to leave letchworth @9
Where do you want picking up?
Happy to be picked up from club if that okay?
Will be at club @ 9
