Details of Desford Striders cross country winter race – December 7th Sunday
Meeting point is at the Bagworth Heath Woods country park.
Parking is very restricted and we request that runners share cars where ever possible to ease the congestion on the day. It would be also very helpful if runners can get to the venue before 10:30 so that the management of the parking can be dealt with by our marshals in an effective manner. Please follow the marshal’s requests at all times thank you.
