GP1 2018 Club Mile Championship – Pre Register

On Wednesday 13th June  we will be hosting the annual club mile championship at the Harrier Centre, Poole Road, Ewell, KT19 9RY. Please aim to arrive by 7:10pm for a warm-up and be ready to start the mile at 7:20pm.

The race will mostly likely be run in three waves this year, subject to numbers – slower (10:00+), intermediate (7:00-9:59), faster (sub-7:00). You can run in any wave.  To get an idea of how many people will be in each wave, and where the cut-off time will be, please pre-register by filling in our registration form.

I believe the track entry fee is £2.70 (bring £3 to be sure) which is payable in cash at the main reception on the night.

If you are unable to run, we would welcome volunteers to help with timing and results. You can use the registration form to specify that you would like to volunteer.

Reminder of the GP rules:

In order for their performance to score in a Grand Prix event, members must visibly wear the official club top (vest or t-shirt). If a member is new to the club they must have a current kit order in place for a club top to be delivered in the next order window to be eligible to score  GP points. (This decision will be at the discretion of club GP Organisers)

Green Belt Relay 2018
