Cross Country - Celebration on 30th April 2022

To celebrate our success at the Southern Cross Country League we are going for a run!! With some celebratory food and socialising afterwards. Many of you will have been invited to the Pompey Tri event. To be held on April 30th 2022 meeting at 8am. Further details on the event page on the Facebook Forum which can be found here. As a member of Pompey Tri you don't have to have run or volunteered at any of the five SCCL cross country races to come to this celebration but ideally for this run you will wear your Pompey Tri branded running vest / shirt. The plan is for a 3km warm up run and then line up for the Queen Elizabeth Country Park parkrun followed by some tri club food / drinks. If you want to volunteer rather than run at the parkrun then please contact the park run directors directly at queenelizabeth@parkrun.com If you want to join just for the post run feed then that's fine too 🙂 You'll need to pay your own car park fees, so you may wish to carpool. Looking forward to seeing you there.
