CROSS COUNTRY CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP RACE DAY – The first of our Club Championship races will be held at this Saturday Metropolitan League at Stevenage – which are for the UNDER 20 MEN, 5 MILES SENIOR MEN and MASTERS MEN.
METROPOLITAN LEAGUE CAR PARKING – Herts Phoenix the race organisers have issued the following statement.
Whilst our event is welcomed by the Park Management, certain elements of our use of the Car Park last year caused concern and, if they are repeated we will lose the use of this facility for future cross country races.
You must park in the designated car parks and must certainly not park on the access roads, footpaths or verges within the Park. If you cannot find a parking place in the Park, there is adequate on-street parking in the surrounding roads. Please do not however block their drives or otherwise inconvenience the residents.
