Spring Handicap: 1 April 2020

This is our 'away fixture' when we make the quick trip along the M62 to our hosts for the evening - Goole Viking Striders, It is traditionally on the first Wednesday evening after the clocks go back and we start British Summer Time. The run commences at 7:00 - over a 4.9m course which starts on the riverbank and follows it for about 3 miles before turning onto road and tracks to the finish at Goole RugbyClub's ground. It is a 99.95% flat course. Goole VS run their own handicap but there is always a bit of competition to find the first male/female home. Its a mass start and we get everyone back (usually) before it gets completely dark. The run is followed by food and drinks with our hosts.

To assiist out hosts on catering we need to get an idea of numbers attending so please register your interest on the Webscorer link.

Remember - there's trophies for the Male/Female handicap winners, Series points available and Grand Prix points (based on run time).

Club Vests / T shirt to be worn, pick up a race number (FREE) on the night. Showers and changing rooms available  - useful if you come straight from work. Travel time under 30 minutes from Ackworth.

Take M62 towards Goole. Go OVER the large bridge over the river Ouse and leave the motorway at Junction 37 (immediately after the bridge).

Turn Left at the roundabout, then left again at the next roundabout. Turn left again at the next roundabout and go over the old Boothferry Bridge. In a short distance turn left yet again onto Hook Lane (which becomes Westfield Lane) - the road goes under the large motorway bridge over the river.
