Due to the shortening of the Men’s course, because of forestry work, at Sunday’s Presteigne XC race it will be necessary to alter the start time for the women’s race.
The Women’s race will now start at 10.45 a.m. and the Men’s race at 11.00 a.m.
This is necessary so that the 2 sets of race results can be kept as separate as possible. If this were not the case, it would take much longer to work out the series results and award winners. This, in turn, would mean that you would be kept waiting for much longer at the presentation venue.
Hopefully, this will also avoid the bottle neck where the runners first turn left to start climbing into the woods and the female runners should be clear of the narrow section before the leading men approach that point.
Apologies for the short notice.We hope that this does not cause any inconvenience .
Hopefully, the arrival of snow will not put a further spanner in the works !
Thanks for your co-operation.
