Microgaming Cross Country League – Round 3

Sunday 3rd December 2017 sees round 3 of the Microgaming Cross Country League at Crossag’s Farm in Ramsey. As usual the registration desk opens at 1pm at the amenity block on the camp site and will remain open until 2pm. Make sure you arrive in good time if you need to enter on the day. If you have entered for the series then there is no need to check in unless you have lost your number in which case see us for a new number to be issued on the day.

The course is hilly with some flat agricultural fields and is well known for being a real test for the runners. The underfoot conditions will only be determined in the next few days. Much will depend on whether the present dry spell continues or if the heavens open and rains heavily!

All spectators and athletes are asked to Park at Ramsey Grammar School car parks rather than drive up to the course as there is very little space for parking. The walk is not far and will help with the organisation of the event.

2.00pm U9 Boys & Girls 2 Small Laps 860m
2.10pm U11 Boys & Girls 3 Small Laps 1290m
2.25pm U13 Boys & Girls & Short Course 1 Small +1 Large Lap 2600m
2.35pm U15 Boys & Girls, U17 Girls & Junior Ladies 2 Large Laps 4660m
2.35pm U17 Boys, Junior Men, Senior Ladies & Vet Ladies 3 Large Laps 6990m
2.35pm Senior Men  & Vet Men 4 Large Laps 9320m

After the first two meetings a number of athletes had repeat wins in round two so it will be interesting if this weekend sees some new faces taking the honours at the front of the races. In the Senior events Rachael Franklin and Alan Corlett have had clear wins in both events up to now so it will be intriguing to see whether they can be caught on the hills of the North of the Island.

Thanks must go out in advance of the event to Northern AC for hosting and also Microgaming for the much valued support of Isle of Man Cross Country events. Hopefully we will see another well supported event full of great sport and many personal battles.

If you would like to volunteer to help marshal the course please let us know.

Athletes are reminded to be ready at start line 5 mins before there start time and to listen out for whistle and instructions from officials.

Since round 1 one we have had a few questions from a number of athletes and family members about the series. We have turned these into a Frequently Asked Questions

We hope to see as many of you as possible.
