Round 1 Cross Country - Newbury- Sunday 4th November 2018

Dear lovers of mud, finally after a summer of baking hot weather turning the ground as hard as rock, we are only a week away to getting back to the muddy stuff!

Event 1: Sunday 4th November

Meet: Didcot football club at 09:30, leave by 09:40

(this is great for lift sharing as car parking costs £4 per car)

Venue: Newbury showground RG18 9QZ

Mens race 11:20

Ladies race 12:00

Need to bring: Didcot Running top and safety pins to attach your race number (PS you keep this race number for all 5 runs - do not throw it away!!!).

A mug!

You may wish to bring a towel and change of clothes, possibly some gloves and a hat for running in if it is that cold).

You may also consider upholding the club tradition of making a cake / nibbles and bringing them along.


What is provided: Hot water to make teas and coffee (the instant kind); as coffee is always best drunk from a mug rather than plastic, please provide your own!

I will also bring bread products and dips. We have a tent for our runners to change in and generally huddle together for warmth.


Footwear is always a tough question for those new to it. My preference is for trail shoes that have a deep tred and rubber soles, some prefer spikes. What sure is that if you only have road shoes, you will find sections on grass a little slippery (just like doing Didcot parkrun in the wet). Not impossible, but you will lose a bit of time. 


I hope to see you all there, fit a raring to go! But may I just make a little confession that I will be arriving direct to the venue as I am coming from London that morning.
