Race starts at 10am. Slightly different course, largely along same route but with start and finish in a different field!
Opinions as to whether spikes can be worn differ, I recommend you also bring studs if you have them. They have formalised some of the paths which are now covered in rubble. I have not seen the new course.
CARSHARES: meet at Garston 08:30.
Directions to the Country Park and then sandwiches!
