Sunday 20th January sees the North West Cyclo Cross League return to Beacon Country Park for the final event of the season.
Organised by the St Helens CRC, the Youth event will start the racing off at 11am with the main event starting at 1.30pm.
11am – Youth Race, £6 entry fee
12pm – Under 12′s, No entry fee
12:30pm – Under 10’s, No entry fee
1:30pm – Sen/Vet/W/Jun, £11 entry fee
The course will be similar to last year’s event due to the sheer amount of positive comments we got back from the riders. Beacon Country Park offers something for everyone and we have designed a challenging yet fun course, because we think Cross is really about having fun in the mud!
The course consists of paths, grass fields, descents, run-ups, off camber turns, hairpins and much, much more.
Riders will be able to sign on at Beacon Golf Club. The Golf Club will be serving hot drinks throughout the day. Toilets are at the Rangers Centre, not in the golf club. Please do not enter the golf club wearing muddy footwear. For those with sat navs, the postcode for Beacon Country Park is WN8 7RU. There are 2 car parks within walking distance of the Golf Club. Please use the 2nd car park when the 1st is full.
