Hi all - don’t forget to layer up tomorrow for the NYSD .... they’ll be lots of standing around so feel free to bring a folding chair/flask of coffee for in between races if you like! If you’re helping with setting up the course it’s 9am meet in the overflow car park ... and for those marshalling meet up is also the overflow car park at 10:15am. If coming after that if you head to Striders tent for further info please. We’ve got hi viz vests for everyone and will go through who’s standing where in the morning 👍🏻👍🏻
A few people asked last night about running this Sundays NYSD XC at Preston Park. As long as you are EA affiliated to Stockton as your 1st claim club and wear club colours at the run that fine. The club pay the entry fees. Liz Jordan & Jerry are our fab team managers 😃😃. Please comment here if running so they have a bit of a heads up .... ladies race is 12pm and men’s 12:30pm

For those doing Preston Park Run - I've already posted the XC lap route but this is the longer run bit if you want to do it :-) basically its run along Yarm to Blue Bell go down steps at right hand side of Blue Bell entrance then turn left and follow the path right along a far as you can go to the wooded area before the golf course (keeping the river on your right) then a nice run up the little incline (?!) brings you out at Sunningdale housing estate and then back to Yarm Road and Preston Park .... easy peasy .... well apart from the mud and the hill lol https://www.walkjogrun.net/routes/current_route.cfm?rid=88109BCD-B921-BB5C-28F22ABDAF0EC493
