Quick October Update - Neswletter coming soon

Chingford League Race #1 - Hog Hill Cycle Circuit - Tuesday 4th October 2011
Unfortunately the mini-bus option has fallen through for tomorrow night due to lack of available drivers.  However, the race is still going ahead. For those who've not run it before it is the first 'Cross Country' race of the season and part of the Chingford League, though being on a tarmac cycle circuit it is actually a road race.  The venue and facility is very good, though the course is not illuminated we rely somewhat on the London glow and the moon. It's a good race to start the season, since we are doing it twice.

Please bring your road shoes (NOT your spikes).

Venue: Redbridge Cycling Centre ('Hog Hill'). 
Times: Senior Race 8:05PM, Juniors U15/U17: 7:45PM, Juniors U13: 7:30PM
Travel: Nearest tube stations are Fairlop and Hainult on the Central Line [map]
For the bus, alight at Hainult and take the 247 bus towards Romford and get out at 'Romford Road / Forest Road' outside the centre.

If anyone is travelling by car, please can they post it on the club noticeboard thread in order to share lifts - that will be very much appreciated. I suggest if you are driving, please don't leave the club any later than 7pm to get there in time for the senior race start. http://disc.yourwebapps.com/Indices/180697.html

Reminder: There is no led session at the club house Tuesday night (4th October) in order that as many runners as possible can support the race.
