October 24 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
NWCX League Round 1 Ysgol Bro Alun (near Alyn Waters) Wrexham
Sunday 24th October 2021
Fibrax Wrexham Roads Club welcomes the League to Ysgol Bro Alun and Alyn Waters Country Park for Round 1 . The course is located between the villages of Gwersyllt and Llay and takes in woodland from Alyn Waters Country Park and the playing field of Ysgol Bro Alun. There’s plenty to challenge competitors. If dry, Alyn Waters will be fast and free flowing. If wet, this race has long slippery stretches of woodland track and field sections that can be the muddiest in the calendar. The school playing fields section forms a natural amphitheatre, the woodland is always challeging. No other venue offers viewers a panoramic view of 5o% of the course.
Sign-on will take place on the school playing field.
Dogs are not welcome.
Parking. There is ample parking in the School Car Park. For competitors parking at the roadside: please ensure child safety at all times. Parents are to avoid their children riding until within the safety perimeter of the compound.
Covid-19 precautions apply. Refer to Facebook notices prior to event.

We are grateful to the Wardens of Alyn Waters Country Park and the Head Teacher & Governors of Ysgol Bro Alun
