The race license, race referee and landowners permission are now all in place for this event on Sunday 19th September at the Oriam Sports centre in the ground of Heriot Watt University.
There will be no charge for participation as the club organisers want it to be as successful as possible – and be a bit of a celebration of the return of off-track events prior to the return of Cross Country in October.
There will be car parking, café and toilet facilities available, but no changing facilities. There will be an area for gazebos within the walled garden. The course is a mixture of trail paths, tarmac and grass.
Due to the numbers now allowed, this will be open to all other East District Clubs via social media.
I will be coordinating names from our clubs for the races – there will only be club-entries ; I only need to provide name, gender and age group for each athlete. I need to have the final list with me by Thursday 9th September. Changes may be accommodated after this, but a final-ish list would be appreciated in order to publish start lists etc in good time.
