NWCX League Round 5 Alyn Waters Country Park Wrexham
(sponsored by The Bike Factory, Chester)
Sunday 10th November 2019
Fibrax Wrexham Roads Club welcomes the League to Alyn Waters Country Park for Round 5 . Alyn Waters is a 400 acre country park in the County Borough of Wrexham. It is located between the villages of Gwersyllt and Llay and takes its name from the Afon Alyn flowing through. This is the oldest surviving fixture in the calendar. 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 were once the muddiest in the calendar. In recent years organisers have opted for the firmer Ysgol Bro Alun playing field. Expect some grassy descents and a tale of two halves: a Country Park section of woodland and school playing fields section that forms a natural amphitheatre. Alyn Waters is unique in that spectators can view nearly 50% of each lap. No other venue offers such a panoramic view of the action.
Sign-on will take place on the school playing field.
Competitors and families please leave your dogs at home if possible.
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.
As in previous years Fibrax Wrexham RC has arranged WC access for the duration of the event at Gwersyllt Cricket Club adjacent to Ysgol Bro Alun car park. Please treat all facilities with respect.
We are grateful to the Wardens of Alyn Waters Country Park and the Head Teacher & Governors of Ysgol Bro Alun
