West Yorkshire XC League Race 2

 Harriers Wide

 

 

West Yorkshire Cross Country League 2012

 

Race 2 – Nunroyd Park Guisley

The second race of the league takes place on Saturday 10th November at Nunroyd Park   in Guisley. Maps showing how to reach the course, where to park etc are available on the league website www.westyorkshireathletics.org.uk . For those of you who don’t know it, Nunroyd is very close to Leeds/Bradford Airport.   There is also a map overleaf. The postcode for the retail park opposite the venue is LS19 7HW.  If you need directions on how to reach Guisley then please ask your age group team manager, myself or Jonathan Sykes cross country secretary who is particularly good at finding the way! It takes about an hour to get to this venue from Holmfirth so please leave enough time. Depending on the weather the course at Nunroyd Park can be very muddy make sure you bring spikes or fell shoes and that your spikes are at least 12mm.

There were some fantastic results at the first race of the league at Wetherby and it was great to see so many new faces running. If you didn’t make it to Wetherby please try and come along on Saturday and have a go. For those who didn’t make it last time and to remind everyone else here are my top tips!

 

  • Try to arrive on the course  80 minutes before your race. (remember you will need to walk to the course from the car park so add that time on too). Why so early? Well you need to get your number sorted, warm up and look at the course, change your shoes, go to the toilet (at least twice!!). There is nothing worse than having to rush round in a panic!! We will warm up together so you need to be sorted before the warm up if you arrive late you will make everyone late and will miss walking the course with the rest of the team.
  • Plan for mud- it is a fact of life, bring spare shoes for the kids for the way home, warm clothes, flasks of hot drinks, sandwiches, snacks,  raincoats, umbrellas maybe even a small tent or shelter if you have one  and a deck chair (good idea so the kids have somewhere to sit when changing their shoes!)
  • Remember all your kit.

 

  • Club vest – I think most of you have got one of these and our supplier has run out of fabric so if you don’t please let me know ASAP and I will organise one for you.
  • Cross country spikes (make sure you have at least 12mm spikes for this race or fell shoes. 
  • Shorts
  • Lots of layers to wear to warm up in – but make sure you take these off to race – there is nothing worse than being too hot.
  • Rain coat
  • Safety pins (for attaching your number- we will have some if you can’t find any)
  • Gloves and hat
  • Hot drink and a snack for AFTER the race
  1. Race number – you should have kept this from the last race. If you have not yet races your team manager will have your number. Do not  go to the registration desk yourself.. If you have lost your number  you have to pay for a new one (only 50p but even so...)

 

If you have any questions or concerns, or need a lift for your athlete or anything else then please contact your team manager or Kath 07973758894. If you can not run then please let your team manager know ASAP preferably not the night before the race.

Team Managers

We have team managers for all the age groups. Most of you met them at the last race. The team managers will sort out your numbers, walk the course with the teams for the younger age groups and/or sort out the juniors to walk the course in groups. Please let them know if you are not able to make a race/ need a lift, or any other query. Please also introduce your junior athlete and yourself to them if you don’t already know them.
