Three Counties XC league. Event 4/5. Letchworth. 15th Dec

Well done again to the super set of squirrels that traveled so far this season. :chipmunk: The results from the first 3 events has put us a fantastic position to set up an amazing day at our own race. :raised_hands:

We have had 13 squirrels do all three events so far and another 15 have done two. A further 23 have run one event, meaning that 51 individuals have turned out so far. :+1:

With the Christmas Party in the evening, we all want to celebrate another great event and team result from NHRR.

I for one am super exited for this Sunday. I hope everybody else is too. :grinning:

I really think that we can put on the best host race as well as the best team performance from a host club. :muscle:

We need helpers and support. :speaking_head_in_silhouette: Please do what ever you can for the cause. :clap:

Lets keep the momentum going!

Race instructions are below.

Please post below to any arrange car shares.

Re: Three Counties XC league. Event 4/5. Letchworth. 15th Dec

Looking forward to doing an XC for the first time. Will I be able to pick up a number tonight (Tuesday) or on the day?

Re: Three Counties XC league. Event 4/5. Letchworth. 15th Dec

I will be at the club on Tuesday and Thursday with numbers. Please try to collect it from me then if necessary.

I will have numbers on Sunday, but if you need to collect it on the day - then please do so early as I will be warming up.

Incidentally the procedure for lost/forgotten numbers is to come to me and I’ll get you a blank number with your assigned number written on in marker pen. Again, please give me time/notice to get this done before preparing to race.

Pin your number to your vest the day before is the way to go. 😉
