Friday night

ü  Remember to pack your bag on Friday night & don’t leave it late!
On the day please remember

ü  Calderglen Harrier black & amber vest - I gave John the club owned vests to be issued & returned same day. If have your own wear it. Alternatively wear your Calderglen Harrier yellow training T-shirt if have one
ü  Spikes or Trail trainers
ü  Safety pins for pinning your number on your vest
ü  Layers in case it's cold and waterproofs in case of wet weather
ü  Spare shoes if planning to walk the course (also spare socks)
ü  Food and drink for after your race
ü  If you can't make the race please let me know. 

Remember allow plenty of time to travel, find place and park. Hopefully there should be ample on road parking. 
I won't be at Drumpellier Park to watch the Harriers in action, so my message is, have your usual meals, make sure you warm up as usual, focus on the best run you've ever had, think of someone you'd like to dedicate the race to, and when the moment comes let go with all that hard training you've done this year. You're fit, fast and strong so get out there and,  smash it. Good luck everyone, see you next Wednesday to hear your tales of glory.
