Our new Men’s Team Captain - Bruce Harrold - has sent a confirming email directly to all the Men’s team who had advised him previously of their availability.
However, there are a number of spare berths, so please contact Bruce if you are interested in running for the Club in the lovely environment of Wimbledon Park; the team relays start and finish at the athletics stadium, which as well as having a stand for supporters....there is a tea shop!
Also, please note that this really is a surprisingly low-key event, with plenty of friendly competition and effort, and including our ladies, we could possibly have 80 Club runners in attendance!
To tempt you further, below is an extract from Bruce’s email:
The race starts at 12 noon and I need to hand in the declaration sheets before the race starts, so it would be appreciated if you could aim to arrive by 11:30am. The race starts and finishes at the athletics track inside Wimbledon Park and remember club vests are a requirement to run - please let me know if you don't have one. There is some parking within the park itself, if you drive into the entrance opposite Woodspring Road. Alternatively there is plenty of on-street parking in the surrounding residential roads. If you're catching the train, it's a two mile uphill jog from Wimbledon station. Or a much shorter 0.5 miles from Wimbledon Park station if you go one stop on the tube.. We still have vacancies amongst the teams, so if you know of any fellow Dorking athletes who haven't put their names forward, please encourage them to come along. As of today, the men's teams are as follows: Senior men A team - complete B team - four spaces remaining V40 A team - two spaces remaining V50 A team - complete B team - one space remaining V60 A team - one space remaining Many thanks and see you on Saturday Bruce 07449 453773
