Westward League XC Fixtures

Sunday 7 October 2018, Plymouth    (see course map below)  PLEASE NOTE; there is a road closure for the Plymouth 5 &10k in the morning.  The road going in to the City Centre will be closed.  If you are approaching from the A38 use the A386 Manadon junction from Parkway.  As well as the road closure a Circus has come to town and set up on the start/finish field at Central Park.  There are performances on Sunday afternoon.  This means Race HQ has been moved, as well as the start and finish, to hopefully point A on the original map.  The start lap will therefore be a lap of that field (A-B-A)  The rest of the course will remain the same and the distances will also be the same.
