We are car sharing from The Liberal Club car park, meeting Sunday morning at 8:40, setting off for Prestwold at 8:45. It's looking like a great turn our again!! It's warm one though, with temperatures in the high twenties, so make sure your are well hydrated pre-race. Be sensible, it is much better to forget targets and just enjoy the event. Pushing yourself too hard in the heat can have disastrous consequences, and from personal experience you don't want to go there!
