Ladies Cross Country 12 NOON Sat Dec 3rd Richmond Park

Our second match is nice and local, starts opposite Pembroke Lodge Car Park, 6K, about 3.8 miles at 12 noon. A nice undulating course with no major hills. All abilities very welcome, (the last few runners do about 12 minute miling). I’ve left maps at the club house, and if you go to Downloads on RHS on front page, click on “Petal runs” there is also a map of Richmond Park showing the car parks.

Pembroke Lodge car park gets full very quickly, Kingston Gate car park is over 1 1/2 miles away uphill, and the Sheen Gate one is nearly 1 1/2 miles away, and if you look at the map there is another car park to the right of Pen Ponds just over a mile away (cutting across the park). Ideally cycle there if you can or get someone to drop you off! There is also the 65 bus from Kingston (Brook Street) to the Dysart Arms, then a steep uphill walk to the start.

All types of shoes are OK, although there is a very short bit of tarmac but you can run at the side if you have spikes. I can take 4 in the car but will be getting there early, please phone to arrange. List is at the club or contact me or come on the day but with time for me to do the declaration before the race and allocate numbers. As the men are not running on the same day for once, it would be great if any would like to cheer us on and enjoy the post race refreshments!
