A reminder that the next MABAC league race is on Sunday 8th April at Winterfold Forest starting at 11a.m.
The race is really for all abilities, for runners, joggers and walkers!
The event consists of two laps of 2.5 miles, with many walkers/ joggers & juniors completing one lap only.
Join in, any position gains points for your club and get any place for DMVAC’s own internal league table. All abilities and juniors are welcome. Two lap 5- or one lap 2½-mile courses.
A fine , remote location for challenging racing along trails through the lovely forests. Partly sandy even so, can be wet/muddy!

OS Ref: 186/919461, OS grid ref. TQ 059428 (car park), 063429 (start)
From Dorking take the A25 West towards but not quite as far as Newlands Corner. Turn left near the Silent Pool, onto the A248 Albury Road then 1st left down New Road. Follow this road, Brook Hill, Shophouse Lane, to Winterfold Heath Road.
As the car parks are small, please try to share cars and park if possible in our club's allocated car park. If none, we are asked to use car parks 5 and 6 if possible (a 5 minute jog to the start). See attached car park map(click here). Bring you mate/ family/ guest?! See you there!
Do consider entering the “surrey slog” on the 22nd July. Away from traffic in the remote Surrey hills, heath and pine forest . A tough challenge half-marathon with several sustained, more gradual climbs and descents on rough trails. Open to all. Entry details on above MABAC website. If you are not taking part, please contact me to volunteer . A rewarding event to marshal at.
best wishes, Patrick
