Tweed Striders look forward to welcoming you to the third leg of the XC at Spittal. In order to ensure the event goes as smoothly as possible for all (runners, spectators, volunteers, local residents), we would ask you to take some time to read these brief notes.
Car parking : there is a large car park on the left hand-side of Sandstell Road as you approach Spittal Point and there is plenty of on-street parking in Spittal but, if parking on-street, please ensure you do not block driveways etc.
For those of you still to collect numbers, Romie Scott will issue these from her grey Suzuki Splash (NJ13 AXK) which will be parked in the very small carpark at the end of Sandstell Road. However, in order to leave this carpark free for Berwick residents out for a Sunday stroll, please do not park here.
Both races will start on the beach at Spittal Point. The beach can be accessed from St Helen’s Terrace (north end of Spittal Prom) : from St Helen’s Terrace, go down the walkway on to the beach, turn to your left and walk back along the beach to the start.
The junior race will start at 11.30 am and senior race at 12 noon. There will be a warning whistle 5 minutes before the start of each race and the athlete briefing for both will be on the beach at the start line. However, in the event of “the unexpected “, Tweed Striders reserve the right to amend race start times (and courses) as necessary.
The results will be posted on the XC website as soon as possible. However, whilst the timekeepers and recorders (all of whom are volunteers as are the marshals) do their utmost to get everything right, grelims can and invariably do sneak in. So, in the event of gremlins, please contact Tweed Striders via firstname.lastname@example.org or via a host club rep - then bear with us while we fix.Forte Bros will have a catering van on site (either at St Helen’s Terrace or on the grass in front of the chimney) selling tea, coffee, bacon / egg rolls, soup etc. There are public toilets further along the Prom, behind the arcade just after the Bowling Club. There are also public toilets in Berwick town centre (Eastern Lane and Woolmarket).
