WLR3 - NMXC Race 1 Markeaton park 14th October

Postby Woolly » Sat Sep 30, 2017 8:45 am

Saturday 14th at Markeaton Park, Derby sees our 1st North Midlands XC race, a great XC race with a strong field of runners, mixture of ages and abilities.

First race starts at 1.00pm for the Juniors, Ladies start at 1.25pm and the men 1.55pm.
Ladies have 2 laps of 6k, around 4.1miles and the men unfortunately 3 laps of 10k / 6.1 miles of a grass muddy terrain ideal for spikes, fell or trail shoes.

It’s a free race for paid up club members wearing a club vest and a great way to train through the winter, with a warm up and down benefiting the legs and adding mileage for those who normally do longer runs at the weekend!

The different race times and being a lap race means there is lots of support on the course and if weather reasonable, great for spectators to cheer on LERC’ers.

There is a car park that gets busy early, car share where possible and please remember it is a pay and display car park up to 2 hours 90p, up to 4 hours £1.80 and over 4 hours £2.50. There are parking attendants around checking! So have some change ready! The main car park, near the pitch and putt course, is accessible from Markeaton Island, DE22 4AA. It has a 2m height restriction. The other car park, near the Mundy Play Centre, is accessible from Markeaton Lane, DE22 4NH.

Let's get a good turn out for this TEAM LERC

We will have the tent and flags there for changing shoes etc., It’s important to have a good turn out for the club so hope to see you there
