Running Up

To maximise the Club's chances of scoring more highly it may be that there is an advantage to have some runners running a longer or more difficult course than specified for their age category (running up). To help us know if this is an option, please state when you enter your details if you would be prepared to 'run up' and which course number(s) you would be happy to be considered for, if required.

Could you please ensure your entry is in by midnight on the 3rd Feb to allow time to finalise and submit the Clubs entry.

Non Counting Colour Coded courses

There will also be colour coded courses (White, Yellow and Light Green) available at the event that do not count towards the CSC competition. If you do not wish to compete in the CSC but do want to run a colour coded course at this event, please enter through the Walton Chasers designated entry system. Compass Sport Cup qualifier round – Walton Chasers ( (when available).

Travel to the Event

Unfortunately the Organisers are unable to handle large buses / coaches at the event parking area.

Competitors will need to make their own travel arrangements. Where possible we would encourage people to consider care sharing.

We are hopeful we can put out a strong and large team this year and look forward to an enjoyable day.

Further details will be provided as they are confirmed by the event organisers.

If you encounter any difficulties registering by the deadline of the 3rd Feb or have any questions regarding the Compass Sport Cup qualifier, please do not hesitate to contact MDOC Club Captain Liz Hamer-Davies at .
