XC Race 2: 12 November

Southern XC League Race 2:

12 November at Queen Elizabeth Country Park

Come along to help HBAC keep that first place! You just need a club vest and some money for parking and cake


Meet at QECP with plenty of time for the team photo, any toilet stops and to get to the start line OR car share from Woolmer Hill bottom car park at 9.45am


Portsmouth Joggers invite you to league race 2 at QECP on Sunday 12th November. The course is in the lovely country park with plenty of hills and forest trails. The race will be a single lap with a long flat(ish) start before a nice steep hill to take you into the forest section.
As this is Remembrance Sunday there will be a minutes silence at 11am followed by the start just after 11:01am. The course distance is 5 miles.

Race Meet: The meeting area / finish, is in lower field which you get to by walking past the park visitor centre. The start line is a short 2 minute walk up hill from the finish area.


Message from Portsmouth Joggers:

Directions: QECP is very easily located off the A3 just south of Petersfield – there are large signs on the A3. Post code PO8 0QE
Car park – competitors must park in the race car park – there is plenty of space if you park considerately. It will be an enormous help if you can car share where possible. Please do not park in the visitor centre car park or drive down to lower field. The QECP require all cars to pay £1.50 and display a parking ticket. Please help us by bringing the correct change.
Failure to display a car park ticket will result in a parking penalty being applied by QECP.
The race car park is just off the northbound carriageway on the slip road (please do not park on the slip road which is exceptionally dangerous). If you are heading south follow the slip round under the road bridge and up to the car park.

Update London club place

Update on London club place as a few of you asked the same question.

After further discussion it has been decided that if you had a club place in 2013, you cannot enter the club ballot to run until 2018, this would mean you run the marathon in 2019 if you were successful gaining the club place.
So club places
Year of Place   Next Enter
2014              2019 for 2020 marathon
2015.             2020 for 2021 marathon
This hopefully gives everyone a fair chance in our club ballot.

Hope this answers the question
