The East District Cross Country league starts up again this Saturday at Stirling University. Dunbar has not participated in this (at least in its own right) for some time. I have been in touch with Alex Jackson however, and we have been added back on to the club list, with our very own club number - no.48.
If you'd like to take part (and why not - it is effectively free, and a great warm up for the even more prestigious Borders League?!), you simply need to make yourself a number and turn up. No prior registration or declaration is required.
The women's race is at 1:10pm, and is around 6k in length. The men's race is 9k, and starts at 2:15pm.
I'm likely to go through, so give me a shout if you'd like a lift (probably three spaces available in the car, four at a push). It would nice if we could get a team out.
More info (lifted from the SA website) below:
"Each club or school that competes in the league has its own club number. In all races athletes wear that club number. Somebody from the club, usually the team manager [Nick: I will fulfil this role] hands in a slip of paper after each race with the names of runners in order of finishing. The clubs provides the numbers. [Nick: please make your own!]
Senior and U17 Women should have an "L" and U20 Women a "J". Masters women should have a "LV" after their club number.
In the Senior Mens Race Masters mark a large "V" after their club number while U20 Men mark a large "J".
There is no need to enter or declare on the day. At the end of the season each club or school pays subscriptions based on the number of finishers in all races through the season."
