Motavation – this Thursday (31Aug)

It’s the 5th and final Motavation race of this year’s series. The usual Thursday evening club run from the leisure centre will not take place this week.

For those who have entered the race, it’s at Stratfield Brake Recreation Ground, Kidlington. Nearest postcode is OX5 1UP but parking is not available at the Recreation Ground and the organisers have requested that we do not park on local roads as a courtesy to residents. Instead the recommended parking is at Oxford Parkway Park & Ride (OX2 8HA). This costs £2, and is a 5-10 minute walk from the race HQ.

Race start is 7pm for this race. If you have run any of the previous races in the series remember to bring your number, if you haven’t run any then allow time to collect your number before the start.

The Stratfield Brake course is mainly on short mown grass, with some gravelled footpaths, is about 4 miles long, and is flat. In previous years the bar has been open after the race, and there will be presentations for race and series winners, so do consider staying for a while afterwards.

Tuesday training at Whitelands as normal – don’t be late, 19:00 pronto start
