Booths Cross Country League
Trent Meadows Long Eaton
It's the fourth race in the series this Sunday at Long Eaton 11am start. The address is Meadow Lane NG10 2FT. The course will be same as last year, 2 laps approximately 5 miles expected to be dry and firm so suitable for spikes.
It has been difficult to find for some in the past so if you haven't been before leave plenty of time to get there. There is a free car park at the end of Meadow Lane if you arrive early enough otherwise park on Meadow Lane and walk down. There will be portaloos but no changing/showers.
