This Saturday is this year’s annual West District XC Championships, which will be held at a new course in Irvine, which from the feedback from the course organisers will be a great day out for all the Club Athletes competing 🙂

Team Selection
A teammer notification has been sent out to all Athletes that have expressed an interest in competing, for those yet to confirm if you could please do so as soon as that would be appreciated!

Travel Arrangements
Unfortunately we won’t have access to the mini bus this weekend and therefore will be travelling down in cars.

If anyone has any space in their car travelling down to Irvine and wouldn’t mind helping take Athletes down to Irvine, can you please let Stephen know.

With the race being just over 1.20 hour away and declrations closing for the first race at 11.00, the plan is to leave Broadwood Stadium at 09.00.

For those that plan to make their own way there, if you haven’t already done so please drop Stephen a txt on 07768 337 608.
