There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes for these races to take place and indeed the races can only go ahead if we have sufficient help to ensure the safety of your children on the course. This year we need to rely on volunteers to assist. When you sign your child up to the event on Web Collect there will be a tick box which will advise you that you may be asked to marshal. I will be allocating marshals ahead of the race date, therefore on registration you may be handed a High Vis jacket and asked to find our Head Marshal who will allocate you your marshal position.
We do hope you can join us for this fantastic event. A hoodie is awarded to any child who completes 5 of the 6 races. A separate email with the course start area, notes and race timings will follow once you are registered.
Yours in Sport, Chris Dorey & Carly Silvester
