Men’s XC TRAVEL UPDATE
Tram is suspended between Wimbledon and Mitcham Junction.
Nicked from The Strags ….
The main thing to be aware of is the tram line between Wimbledon and Mitcham Junction is closed for engineering works on Saturday, so for those of you travelling by public transport, the route is now train to Clapham Junction, where you change for a train to East Croydon and can then pick up the tram to Lloyd Park. So, for example, the 12:18 train from Kingston will enable you to pick up the 12:53 fast train to East Croydon, and from there it is a 7 minute tram journey to Lloyd Park, getting you to the start at 13:16, in plenty of time to warm up etc.”
So please factor this in when travelling!
With Valentines 10K only 1 week away we are putting the final touches to the race plan which we will share during the week. Grant will be emailing everyone around Wednesday / Thursday with details of what we require you to do on race day. Some will be asked to work in the race HQ others as marshals along the route. For those of you who are not familiar with what happens race day please read on for some guidelines for the day:
