Hylands Park Burn-up
Saturday 5th December
Virtual? / Real?
On Saturday 5th December 2020 Chelmsford AC will be hosting a cross country race/run for all age groups and club athletes including our Jumpers, Throwers & Sprinters.
We especially want to encourage club athletes who's main discipline isn't endurance running.
We'd love you to see this as a fitness target and something to focus on whilst there are no competitions gong on.
With the lack of races of any kind to be had we thought this would be a great way of bringing our various training groups together and give them a fun but competitive event to focus on.
This will be an excellent way to get to know your fellow Chelmsford AC team mates whom you may never have spoken to on club training nights.
Format (subject to change depending on Covid restrictions on the day)
Date: 5th December 2020
Free to Enter.

Parking: There are very limited spaces by the church so we recommend you use the main car park which is off the A414 and is free of charge to use. Bear in mind it's quite a long walk from there to the race venue so please leave yourself plenty of time.
Times will be noted and results will be announced later in the day on this page.
We remind everyone attending that the health of our athletes, parents, marshals and race officials is paramount therefore we insist you follow all guidelines on safe distancing laid out by the Government at all times. Full details can be found here https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
