Crossgates Harriers would like to announce our venue and route of race 5 Sunday 10th February 2019 race start 10am.
It’s a first for us at Crossgates to host an event in the Winter League, we don't profess to compete with previous events like the Beast for elevation but we have an old skool course of local cross country trail like the ones you did back in the day, fast, flat and muddy all 5.4miles of it. Trail shoes recommended.
Our HQ for the event is the Barnbow Social Club, Manston Lane, Leeds LS15 8ST. There is no parking at the club (paying patrons only we’re afraid) but road parking near and around the streets is available. Please please please car share where possible as the spaces aren’t endless and there is an industrial site close by.
The race start is a 10 min walk or a 5 min jog away so give yourself plenty of time.
The HQ will be open from 9am, where you’ll be able to come store your clubs gear in the function room and use the toilets. Out of courtesy to the Barnbow all we ask is no muddy trainers inside the venue.
Our friends at Big Bobble Hats will be at the HQ for you to pick up that hat you envied on your fellow runner at the Pudsey event!
We have a motto at our club ‘no run no bun’ so please come celebrate the debut event with a tea or coffee and a cake, many of them baked by our own fair hands. Go green and bring your own mug for your cuppa. Hot drinks will be available before the race for those spectators who need to warm up.
We also have a raffle that you can try your luck too. (Further donations greatly appreciated!)
We’re excited to host an event this season, hope you enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed planning and organising it!
