Rachel Ward writes: The University of Warwick Athletics & Cross-Country Club has invited us to bring a team, or teams, to the Brose Warwick Relays at Cryfield Pavilion, Warwick University this Saturday 29th October 2011.
A few of us competed here in 2010 and had an enjoyable afternoon’s racing in a relaxed and friendly environment. It’s a great opportunity to experience a gentle introduction to cross country running over a 3km course. For those more experienced it is possible to have a good workout by running more than 1 leg – see the event information below.
Due to the relaxed nature of the event it is possible to form your own teams of 3 (ladies) or 4 (men or mixed). As mentioned above, team members are able to run more than 1 leg. Therefore if you want to form your own team please just go ahead and sort out your entry on the day – you will be reimbursed £3 for each team member by the club (the club will only pay for the 1st leg you run).
However, if you want the club to put you into a team and sort out your entry please contact Rachel Ward no later than Wednesday 26th October. Please note that Rachel will be wanting to prepare for the race on the day, and so will not want to be involved in last minute entries and sorting teams out on the spot. Your co-operation is appreciated, so unless Rachel is informed by 26th October please take responsibility for your own entry to the event.
