Peco XC Sunday 9 February

The next event in the Series is this Sunday at West Park Leeds.  (Sorry for putting the wrong date in last week’s junior email, I hope you worked out the correct date).

Stormy conditions are forecast so we will not be bringing the gazebo. We do recommend you bring a bin bag or similar to keep your kit bag and belongings dry.  We’ve received an email from the league to confirm that they’re planning to go ahead as planned but if the forecast deteriorates further they may be forced to cancel.

Please check the Peco League home page http://pecoxc.co.uk/ and the Peco Race 4 page http://pecoxc.co.uk/pages/race4.html on Sunday morning before travelling

Assuming it goes ahead …

Before Sunday, please read the race information at http://pecoxc.co.uk/pages/race4.html .  Please read the messages about parking.  The course description mentions a stream crossing with big stones.  Please go and look at this before the race so you know what to expect.  If you’re planning to wear spikes, it is essential that you check this crossing.

Regarding your entry
– If you’ve already entered the series and ran event 1 or 2 or 3, then you don’t need to enter again, but do remember to bring your race number (NB if you’ve lost your number since then you will need to buy another at registration for £2.50)
– If you entered the series before event 3 but didn’t run either 1 or 2 or 3, then your number will be in a plastic bag hanging on the club banner on race day.
– If you entered the series after event 3, then your number will be in a plastic bag hanging on the club banner on race day.
– If you’ve not entered the series, you can enter on the day at the registration desk in the Dalesman.
– You don’t need to go to the registration desk if you’ve already entered.

We now have nearly 90 junior Striders (including waiting list) who have entered the series!
