The race arrangements are now confirmed and we have published the race prospectus and race route (same as 2023) on here on the website. The entry fee for the coming race has been set at £18 and registration for the race will open on Sunday 12th November at 8pm. We strongly recommend those looking to enter read the race prospectus and create an account on EntryCentral in advance of registration opening as we expect places to sell out very quickly.
NB: Runners get a free hot drink and cake at the end of the race. We will also have additional food and drinks available to be purchased by supports and runners.
We will need plenty of volunteers to help on the race day, particularly with marshalling. If you can help please get the date in your diary and we'll give a shout out for volunteers to register later in the autumn.
The August bank holiday weekend is the perfect time to make the journey to Cornwall to enjoy the excellent sea cliff climbing. We are heading to our regular haunt at Kelynack Camping and Caravan Holidays. It is strongly recommended to book in advance. You need to book directly with the campsite.
We have a WhatsApp group for those going on the trip to co-ordinate lift sharing. You can find the WhatsApp group in our community on WhatsApp and request to join. You'll need to bring your own food and equipment for cooking (unless you plan to eat out, in which case make sure you book well in advance).
We are heading to Orpierre in the south of France for our autumn hot rock trip from Saturday 30th September to Sunday 8th October. Orpierre is a bit of a climbing mecca with more than enough to go at on the crags above the village to keep you busy for weeks. The campsite is next to the village and within walking distance of the crags so there is no need to even get in the car to go climbing. There is also a via ferrata just outside the village. If the climbing at Orpierre isn't enough for you then Chateauneuf de Chabre and Sisteron are within a 30 minute drive.
This is a self serve meet, i.e. club members group together and make their own travel/accommodation arrangements. We are staying at Camping Les Noyers which is a climber friendly campsite in Orpierre. Book your place directly with the camp, it's only 90 euros for 7 nights camping for a tent and two people.
We have a dedicated 'Hot rock 2023' WhatsApp group which you can request to join to find fellow club members to team up with for transport/accommodation.
