SWL XC Returns this Sunday at Framlingham!
After a long hiatus, the Suffolk Winter League XC series returns this Sunday at Framlingham.
You need to wear club colours for this, if you don't have a club top there may be some spares that can be loaned out.
Please sign up where possible to the event linked here so we can gauge a rough idea of how many will be attending and who to look out for.
Date: Sunday 7th November 2021
Venue: Framlingham Sports Club, Badingham Road, IP13 9HS.
Senior Race: (Age 16+)
11am. £5 Entry fee.
All races will start and finish on the castle meadow. This is a 5 min walk from Race HQ. Please ask anyone wearing a hi-vis tabard or a Fram Flyers top if you’re not sure where you’re going.
Facilities: The clubhouse will NOT be used this year.
Teas/ cakes etc will be served from a tent outside the clubhouse.
We will also supply a tent for team captains to use if needed.
All clubs are welcome to bring their own gazebo/shelter- there is plenty of space for these.
Male toilets/changing facilities will be available in the changing rooms adjoining the clubhouse.
Female changing/toilets will be in the two changing rooms next to the main football pitch.
There will also be a toilet block open here providing male/female/disabled facilities.
Please follow car park marshals instructions when you arrive and hopefully we'll get all vehicles on site.
Team Captains: All runners should pay their entry fee to their respective team captain before the race.
Age groups for seniors are set by age on 07/11/2021.
Please note that NO DOGS are permitted on the Sports Club playing field. They are permitted on the castle meadow.
Senior runners please be aware that when you are heading over to the start area that Junior races could already be in progress. In particular- the U11's fun run will take place around the perimeter of the start/finish meadow. Please follow marshal instructions.
We've been around the course today and it's in good condition- there are one or two sticky patches but they will just add to the fun I'm sure!!
The course is suitable for spikes but please be aware that there are a few wooden bridges/walkways to negotiate as well as a stone bridge and some stone steps!
Please listen to marshal instructions at all times when on the course.
