I will collect all the race numbers for all VS junior teams and will have them waiting for you at the Valley Striders banner which will be quite close to the registration area. You don’t need to go to the registration area yourselves.
I will give each of you your race number, this will be unusual in that it will have a number and a letter. The number is your team’s number, the letter – A, B or C – signifies whether you are running the first, second or third leg. Do not swap numbers and do run in the right order. Please bring 4 safety pins.
Please arrive at the banner by 6:10pm at the very latest (ideally by 6pm). NB if you arrive at Golden Acre after 5:30, the Arthington Road car park may be full, you will need to park in the Otley Road car park and walk across – allow at least 10 minutes for this!
I will brief everyone at 6:15pm, describing the route and explaining how the changeovers work. We will then have a short warm up – particularly for the A runners. B and C runners can join this, but don’t do too much because you’ll then be cooling down while you wait for your incoming runner.
There is a little bit of extra information on the race organiser’s website. Here’s the link. It will open in a new tab.
In particular the members of the 2 junior teams running in the adults race will need this to see their course map.
