Once again we are pleased to have Paxton House as the venue for the NRC round of the Border XC series and would like to thank the management & staff for their co-operation, also the Home-Robertson family for generously allowing us access to the surrounding farm/woodlands.
Owing to the continuing poor weather parking is likely to be on the drive & roadsides so please car share where possible, allow enough time a 10 min walk/jog and above all please avoid parking on the mown verges near the farm & entrance to Paxton House.
Registration will be in the tearoom conveniently situated close to the toilets and start/finish areas of both races. The tearoom will be open at 10am serving teas, coffee, soup, rolls etc.
Both Senior & Junior routes will consist of the usual mixture of parkland, fields, stream crossing(s) depending on the weather, woodland/riverside paths and MUD!!!
Seniors will complete a lap of the Junior route before heading off in search of adventure! Updated maps will be on display in the Courtyard on the day.....please note the course is unsuitable for spikes.
In order that we continue to be made welcome at Paxton House......PLEASE park where directed, when warming up stick to the marked route on the farm/woodland and try to avoid using the toilets whilst wearing muddy footwear.
Note that under no circumstance will washing shoes in the toilets be tolerated!!!
