Dear Mudlarks,

It’s the time of year when we have to submit the Club’s entries for the Cross Country Championships. Unfortunately, the deadlines are often well in advance.

As the entries are a cost for the Club, we do need to ask for deposits which are returned if you compete (unfortunately we have had many no-shows before). It is £6 for each race, you can enter all or just the ones you wish. I would certainly hope to see a big team, especially for the Kent Championships at Brands Hatch.

  • Kent Champs, Brands Hatch, 8th January 2022 – deadline 14th December
  • Southern Champs, Venue not announced, 29th January 2022 – deadline 14th December
  • National Champs, Parliament Hill, 26th February 2022 – deadline 20th January

As you may notice we don’t know the venue for the Southern Champs yet. It won’t be held in London since that’s where the National Champs are being hosted. Previously the venue has been anywhere from Devon to Sussex to Norfolk. As soon as we get an update on venue and confirmation that the event is going ahead we will let you know. If any event does not take place for whatever reason we will refund your deposit.

With regards to travelling to these venues, for Brands Hatch you will have to make your own way, car sharing where possible. For the National Champs it is likely we will have a coach. For the Southern Champs, once we know the venue and numbers going, we will make a decision on transport options.

To make a deposit, please choose the relevant option(s) on the membermojo store at: https://membermojo.co.uk/bexleyac/store

Kind regards,
Kevin Winch
