Three Counties XC league. Event 3/5. Wootton. 8th Dec

Its race week! :raised_hands: The third cross country league race is this Sunday! :grinning:

We need as many Squirrels :chipmunk: running round Delapre Abbey as possible to maintain our lead of the league.

We've had some fantastic results so far, but we can't afford to ease up. We have to keep pushing and turning out as often as we can to keep the momentum going. Every squirrel matters!

The course is suitable for trail/studs or spikes. :feet:

I will be at the club Tuesday/Thursday with the numbers if you need to collect it. 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.

Anybody that runs will be entered into the runners raffle prize draw. :gift:

We also need a cheer squad, so if you can't run and you'd like to come and cheer that would be appreciated. :speaking_head_in_silhouette: :clap:

If anybody can help us with the scoring then please let me know. Ideally we need two people. :writing_hand:

Don't forget to bring your own mug. :coffee:

N.B. you use the same race number for all races, so if you have it already then you don't need another one.

Please post below to arrange lift shares. :car:

Weather Report

MetOffice predicts 9 degrees :thermometer: 50% chance of precipitation :partly_sunny_rain: - looks like it’s reducing for the start of the race however.

JohnOffice predicts fantastic flying squirrels and 100% chance of fun. :heart_eyes:

Re: Three Counties XC league. Event 3/5. Wootton. 8th Dec

Or spectate even lol

Re: Three Counties XC league. Event 3/5. Wootton. 8th Dec

Lol Hayley - watching is good fun too, and the more people there to cheer the better!

Re: Three Counties XC league. Event 3/5. Wootton. 8th Dec

A request from Wootton RR.


  • Please encourage car sharing and follow marshal instructions to the start which has been moved a bit closer to HQ. Still a good walk though.


The details I’ve added above are from the 3cxc website, but the route is not correct. The version on Wootton RR website is here - this is what we did last year. I assume from the above that the start is closer to marshal point 1.

Re: Three Counties XC league. Event 3/5. Wootton. 8th Dec

I would really like to give this a try.

Can I pick up a number on Tuesday night?

Re: Three Counties XC league. Event 3/5. Wootton. 8th Dec

Hi Hayley

I can give you a lift if you want?

Re: Three Counties XC league. Event 3/5. Wootton. 8th Dec

Hi Chris thankyou can I confirm nearer the time when I know if my energy levels have returned enough !

Re: Three Counties XC league. Event 3/5. Wootton. 8th Dec

I plan to be at Spirella at 8am- departing 8:15 for Wooton. I have two people that are likely to come with me so space for another.

Re: Three Counties XC league. Event 3/5. Wootton. 8th Dec

Is that last place in car available? ☺

Re: Three Counties XC league. Event 3/5. Wootton. 8th Dec

I am driving from Letchworth with spaces available as my passengers have had to drop out. Please post if you want a lift.
