Meet-up at South of England XC Champs, 28 Jan

Peter Simpson attempts to generate support for the VRUK team at the Southern Men’s Cross Country Champs at Brighton on 28 January.

Various age group events with separate races for male and female runners are scheduled to start at 11am in Stanmer Park. The men’s event over a distance of 15K is the last, starting at 2.50pm. The later start for the men allow our runners: Dave Arnold, Sam Wilson and myself to consider lunch options. It is an opportunity to meet-up in the centre of Brighton before traveling onto Stanmer Park.

I am planning to be in the Infinity Foods Cafe, 50 Gardner Street, The Lanes from about 11.30am until maybe 12.50pm and you are invited to join me. I am planning to travel onto Stanmer Park by train on the 1.10pm to Falmer station adjacent to the park. Note that car parking at the event is £5 at the nearby Amex stadium.

After the event I will most probably have an early evening meal before heading back to Brighton station shortly before 7pm.
