MUDS, MILES AND CHEERS - RACE #2 - XC Chingford league - Saturday 22 October
- 5 miles – Rangers Road and Forest Side, Chingford, E4 7QH. Senior Men and Women race at 2.30 This is the home fixture for Orion Harriers who scored strongly for both the women’s team at Hog Hill in October and always do well in the Mens’ competition. The course is on the edge of the very lovely Epping forest – A good turnout will keep the first place positions of our Mens’ A and B team; move the Men’s Vets up and the Senior Women and Women Vets have an opportunity to improve on the current third position place. Footwear: The course will require XC spikes or alternatively trail shoes with good grip – this is definitely cross-country and it is often muddy under foot on the flatter sections (believe me I know). Timing 1:45 - Under 13s - 3km 2:05 - Under 15s and Under 17s - 4.5km 2:30 - Senior Men & women ~8km/5miles. Directions: 10 minutes jog from race HQ - Orion Harriers. Close to the Royal Forest Hotel, on the other side of Rangers Road from the RFH. Travel: By train, take the Liverpool St - Chingford line (stops in Bethnal Green, Hackney Downs etc).
