CC6 CROSS COUNTRY BADGER FARM HOME RACE

CC6 Sunday 6th Jan 2019 @ Badger Farm, Winchester

This coming Sunday, we are co-hosting the CC6 along with WADAC and Running Sisters. We are looking for a few volunteers to help with the marshaling on the day.
We need to be on site at 8:30 am and we will be off site by 11 at the very latest. Parking is at Sainsbury’s car park SO22 4QB.
If you think you can help out, please email Jon Ward (jaw@soton.ac.uk), or just turn up on Sunday morning.
