South London Harriers Alf Shrubb Memorial Open 5 mile XC race – 12th Feb 2022

Message from Steven Vincent:

I am contacting you all regarding South London Harriers open 5-mile cross-country race, the Alf Shrubb Memorial Race to be held on Saturday 12th February 2022 over Farthing Downs / Happy Valley in Coulsdon, Surrey. If any of your members would like to take part in this race then they would be most welcome.

This race also includes the SLH 5-mile CC Championship for the Gibb Cup.

The race starts at 2:30 p.m. and is a single lap course over challenging terrain with prizes offered (subject to entries) for first 3 men and women and first vets (MV40, MV50, MV60, MV70, LV35, LV45, LV55), mixed team of 4 (any combination but must be mixed), and for best Alf Shrubb look-a-like.

There are secure changing and showering facilities available in our clubhouse and free tea and cake for all finishers, as well as a very reasonably priced bar that will be open after prize-giving has concluded.

I would be very grateful if you could let your members know about this race and please find attached an entry form. Entry details are shown on the form but entry and payment on the day is also fine as long as enough time is allowed beforehand to collect numbers and get to the race start.
