This Sunday sees our Club’s annual trip down to Gorebrdge to take part in the Lasswade XC, which is a fantastic Cross Country Competition that caters for all age groups, (U11’s up to Masters), and capabilities 🙂 and will take place at the usual location, Gore Glen Playing Fields, Engine Road, Gorebridge, Midlothian.

Distances for each age group and timetable for all races are as follows:

Athletes Registration
For those that would like to run and have yet to say there is still time to do so 🙂

This year Lasswade AC are using an Online System to allow Athletes to register online before the event, which you can access here.

If you are attending and have registered online, can you please let Stephen know by dropping him a txt on 07768 337 608, as a reminder race entry fees are £3.00 for U11’s – U20’s and for Senior’s it will be £5.00.

Due to the number of Athletes attending, we will be taking a Mini Bus and will leave Muirfiled Community Center at 10.15 on Sunday morning and will leave Gorebridge after the last race our Club Athletes are competing in, which looking at the Timetable should be 14.00.  Those wishing to travel down on the Mini Bus if you can please let Stephen know.

The bus should be back to Muirfield Community Center around 16.45.

If you are making your own way there, can you please txt Stephen on 07768 337 608 to let him know.

What Athletes Need to Bring 🙂
For the moment the weather forecast for Sunday is looking a bit mixed – perfect cross country conditions 🙂 As we will be there for a couple of hours can all athletes please make sure you bring the following:

– Pack lunch and water (fizzy juice and cross country tend not to be a good combination :-))
– Club Vest
– 4 Safety Pins
– Warm long sleeved top, jogging bottoms, spare pare of socks
– Shower proof jacket, hat and gloves
– Spikes or Trail Shoes
– Bin bag for dirty shoes/ wet clothes (your parents will thank you :-))

On behalf of all the Club Coaches we hope you all enjoy the race especially those who are running their first Cross Country 🙂
