We hope as many as possible if you will be able to join us for the final Chiltern League Race of the season – the more people who can run the greater chance of consolidating our points for the season and maybe getting some teams on the podium. If you haven’t done any other CL races this season please give this one a whirl so you know what to look forward to next October! This course has a couple of hills including what some call the Little Dipper and Unicorn Hill and is a favourite of some members. Remember all members from U11 upwards are welcome (school year 5 and above) and if you are not a member but would like to run you can run as a guest. Please arrive at the St Albans tent 1hour before your race time and note the time table change for this race!
IMPORTANT – Are you running? All members – Please let us know if you plan to run on Saturday 10th or are not available – by completing the poll at https://goo.gl/forms/9GTBTQvcd5pH3lA53 – it will only take you a minute and any body who would like to run as a guest, please let us know.
Address and Travel
The address is Campbell Park, Central Milton Keynes MK9 4AD.
Traveling from the M1, exit at Junction 14 and take the H5/Portway until you see signs for Campbell Park Cricket Pavilion. From the A5, take the Central Milton Keynes exit and continue along the H5/Portway towards Campbell Park. The park is situated at the John Lewis end of the shopping centre. Parking is free in the bays along Silbury Boulevard, which runs alongside the park. Extra parking is available near the shopping area, but this is pay and display. Do not park on Silbury Boulevard, as you will be clamped. Tents may be dropped off at the cricket pavilion entrance and wheeled to the start/finish area.
Declarations and Presentations will be in the marquee close to the finish area. Portable toilets will be situated in the cricket pavilion car park. There will be a refreshment van in this car park, serving food and hot/cold drinks. The presentations of the Awards will be held in the Cricket Pavilion at the following times:
- 1pm Under 11s and Under 13s;
- 2pm Under 15s and Under 17/20 Women;
- 4pm Seniors, Veterans, Under 20 Men, Under 17 Men and overall awards.
The course is mainly on grasslands and is undulating in places. Spikes are advisable. The course is spectator-friendly, but please be aware of pedestrians/dogs/cyclists going through the park. The senior men’s race start will be different from all other starts, due to numbers. Maps of the courses can be downloaded here.
Finally we really need a couple more volunteers to help out on the day (taking the tent and assisting with registration). Please visit https://www.stalbansac.co.uk/xcvolunteer/ to sign up to help.
