:raised_hands: Hip hip hooray! :raised_hands:
So the dark evenings are on the way back - however we should not be sad as this also means that cross country is on its way back!
Thank goodness we don’t have to race in the heat anymore. :sweat_smile: Nor do you have to race after work, you get a days rest and a lovely sleep before the race. #HappyDays :+1:
I have started to prepare us for the Three Counties XC league - more to come on that, for now, I have confirmation of the dates and a few other XC races to look forward too.
Remember we are defending champions in the combined team competition and the ladies are defending champions too. Runners up in the men means that we have an opportunity to improve this year with a clean sweep. :pray:
Cross country is for everybody, speak to your coach or myself if you have any questions.
It’s bonkers running season. Time to dust off the studs. Can’t wait John.
Mud, sweat & teas - bring it on!
It's what winter was made for ..... :grinning:
If anyone is new to the club - or to XC - and is unsure about taking part, what sort of shoes you might need etc. then please do as John suggests and speak to him or one of the coaches.
Those of us who've been doing XC for a few years will testify that it is great fun and there is fantastic team spirit! :clap: :clap: :clap:
I have never done XC before, I don't have a number (or a clue!).
If I was to come along, do trail shoes do the job and when can I get a number please?
And will you be posting info about Wing soon?
Thank you :)
I had similar concerns, but basic trails shoes did the job for me at Wellingborough, and apparently the other courses are less boggy! Not sure it'd be the same on a wet day though!
Details for Wing are posted here
You should be OK at Wing in trail shoes. There's a lot of grass. I will be at the club Tue/Thur with numbers. I also have them on race day. Although if you need to collect it race day, please make sure you get there early as I will be warming up too.
Give it a go Angeliki! :grinning:
Yay!! Thank you. I am not sure yet if I can make it this Sunday but I definitely want to do one at least before the season is over!!
