Three Counties XC league. Event 2/5. Wellingbrough. 25th Nov

We're nearly into another race week! :raised_hands:

Lets keep the momentum going!

Hope to see another fantastic turn out of Squirrels at Wellingborough. If you don't fancy negotiating the brook, we still need helpers and a cheer squad. :clap:

Please find below the details regarding the first race.

Do note the change of Race HQ - this is due to the change of date conflicting with another event at the normal HQ.

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:

Please can I have a couple of volunteers to complete the score sheet too? :writing_hand:

Re: Three Counties XC league. Event 2/5. Wellingbrough. 25th Nov

Is anyone able to look after two well behaved children (5&8) whilst I race?

Re: Three Counties XC league. Event 2/5. Wellingbrough. 25th Nov

Race week is well underway now! Please read the details above RE the new race HQ. :raised_hands:

If anybody doesn’t fancy running and wants to support the team by cheering and or helping then please let me know. :pray:

Wellingborough is great place for spectators as it’s very loopy. The runners are never too far away from you.

Also the water feature is great fun for both spectators and runners. :grinning:

If anybody can please watch Johns children, then this would be a massive help to the team too. I’m sure it won’t take too much effort as the water feature provides plenty entertainment in its self. :+1:

We also need some help with the he scoring collection. I can provide training in the morning, it’s not difficult, but helps the team too. It’s a great way to learn peoples names too. :hugging_face:

Also spectators have great opportunity to show off our fabulous team kit!

Pete is happy to look after John’s children to allow John to run:)

Re: Three Counties XC league. Event 2/5. Wellingbrough. 25th Nov

I hope to pop along and am happy to help rather than run...

Re: Three Counties XC league. Event 2/5. Wellingbrough. 25th Nov

Hi John,

Katie and I will be there to help wherever you want us. Happy to take results if that would fit.
