Notes for this fixture:
1. The Essex League races will follow the same routes as last year except for a change to meet the League distance guide for the U17M/U17W race. Maps of the race routes will be posted at the venue.
2. Parking at the venue is always difficult with the restricted width access. Please be patient and follow the parking marshals instructions. We are again hoping to use the large field at the venue. The Park Ranger has advised, however, we will not be able to use the field if it becomes too wet following any prolonged rainfall. If the field becomes unavailable to us, parking at the venue will be very limited and you will have to use suitable surround roads. Hopefully the weather will be kind and do look out for any updates on parking via the Essex XC league FB page. Please do car share where possible.
3. There will be portaloo toilet facilities but no changing facilities at the site.
The venue is at Langdon Hills Country Park, One-Tree-Hill, Post Code SS17 9NH.
From the A13 Five Bells Roundabout head for the B1420 Corringham.
The Country Park is sign posted at a roundabout (By the Eastern Garage) about half a mile along the B1420.
Turn right at the roundabout and head up One-Tree-Hill to the venue which is on the left.
