WL Race 10 - EMXC Holme Pierrepont 26th November

Postby Woolly » Tue Nov 07, 2017 3:45 pm

If you have ever done the standard road races around Holme Pierrepont, which there are a few this is very different! Mud, grass, hills and good fun.

This is free to affiliated club members, just wear your club vests! 11am start

2 laps for the men and 1 lap for the ladies but with laps of only 2.5 miles, good distance for us ladies and newer XC runners!
Last 2 years has been the 'white water' side, carpark - Take a left on Adbolton lane just past sailing club, carry on round past rugby club for parking left side of the water.
There is a bit of a walk / jog to the start area 3/4 left up the rowing lake!

The course is crowded at the start heading out in the wooded area as it changes to a single file track at around the three quarters of a mile mark.
The race then loops around the end of the Rowing course, through another tree lined area and back around the bottom of the rowing lake, through trees and up and down banks (3 times!) before running to the finishing area then the men start the second lap. Watch out for tree roots underfoot!

Come on Team LERC lets have a good turn out for men and ladies, who's in?
Ladies - shorter run for us, no excuses!!

Who's baking for this one?!
