As most of you know (I think), Helsby RC is hosting a Border League race on 15th December, on Wigg Island, off the coast of Runcorn.
On Sunday 24th November at 11 am, Adrian and I are organising a recce of the course for all Helsby runners who would like to come along, including those of you who are already familiar with it.
To help make race day itself a success, we will need a minimum of 6, but ideally 8 marshals. If you are not intending to race on 15th December, please would you consider volunteering; and if you are likely to run, do you have a relative or friend who you could volunteer?!
The idea is that, on the day of the recce, we will be able to show the ‘volunteer’ marshals their positions and brief them on any particular hazards or issues.
What you need to do:
If you are likely to come along to the recce as a runner, please could you let me know so we get an idea of numbers; but, most importantly, please could you let me know if you are willing to marshal or know of anyone else who can marshal and whether you/they can also make it on 24th November (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Directions to Wigg Island
Directions are very straightforward: from Junction 12 of the M 56, follow the A 557 Weston Point Expressway, past the turn off for Runcorn Station, past the Bridge and Runcorn Town Centre turn offs and then follow the brown sign for Wigg Island.
