The final count down is on for the most anticipated race of the season!

PLEASE read the race booklet here

1. Camping (arrive anytime on Saturday)

Camping is on site (no pre-booking needed) and costs £10 per person (which will be collected in the evening by the organisers so have cash ready).

2. BBQ (about 6pm)

We plan to have a BBQ once tents are up and if you are able to provide transportation for disposable BBQs please let me know!

Please bring your own food and drink, additional BBQs would be very appreciated.

3. Travel

If you are able to offer a lift and/or bike and/or luggage spot please post below.

All those wanting to join me via train (leaving Herne Hill at 3ish Saturday - exact timings TBC) to Battle and then a 30-minute cycle to Ashburnham Place should arrive before 5pm (Sunday return is slightly longer but will give essential resting.

5. Gazebos

If you are able to bring the Windrush Gazebos please let us know! As they will provide essential cover if it rains...

6. Post race celebrations

We will be celebrating every Windrusher crossing the line (please join as support crew even if you are not racing - we have flags) so wear/borrow club kit (post requests below)! 

Once the race is over, we will pack up and head back home and plan to meet in Herne Hill around 6pm (after showering!) to celebrate the last race of the season with a cool beverage in the Prince Regent (opposite the Lido!).

Any additional questions please post below...

Hello! 

I'll be driving down. No roof rack so with my own bike and kit, I think I'll have space for 1xhuman and 1xsignificant luggage (bike/V large tent) + bbqs and bags. First come, first served. Sorry I’m not sure who’s already sorted from the above chain.

ETD from East Dulwich area around 3pm and happy to do door to door service if you live in the general Windrush catchment.

Couple of other things:

  • I have a big tent with a spare 'room' (#baller), so if anyone wants to help me put it up, I can house you.
  • I do not have any Windrush rig yet sadly so if anyone's got a spare small Jersey or Top that I can pop over my Trisuit, I'll happily represent.

Thanks,

Becky 

I think I'm the only person in the club racing elsewhere on the 24th. I'll be trying not to drink any lake water at Hever Castle ....anyone else racing at Hever? I'll you all in the pub after. C

I'm planning on hiring a car through car club and driving down early Sunday....not sure I can hack night in a tent pre race (m' poor old bones!). If anyone wants to split the cost (about £30 each) and grab a lift down and back with me, that'd be fab. Otherwise I'm happy to ferry camping gear back on Sunday afternoon.

If anyone is doing Sussex as their first race and fancies a quick chat about any last minute questions etc then let me know below and we'll arrange something at the campsite the night before. 

In the mean time this might be of use (it includes a packing list, if you're camping then obviously add tent, head torch etc!)

Lucy, head coach

Hi becky, I've got a tri top and bike jersey that you can borrow, which would be best for you?

If no one's taken you up on your kind offer, please could I grab a lift and tent space? I'll have a bike but if you can house me I won't need a tent!

Hi Folks

I'm still lift free, so if anyone else is driving, please give me a shout! otherwise, as long as my kit can travel, happy to bike & train it (the heavy rail option, not the workout)

Thanks!

Gesine - I'm driving down and judging by the number of times you are in Dulwich swimming pool we must live reasonably close

Am going to have to sort out the bike racks on my mid-life-crisis-mobile but, assuming that can be done at some point this weekend, should be able to take you, your bike and camping gear.

When did you plan on going down?

If anyone has a space in a car for me and is leaving after 3pm I would be very grateful! I'm flying in from Jordan in the morning so won't have time to drop kit off to anyone before getting a train or anything, so a lift would be incredibly helpful!
Hi Tony. If you (or anyone else) has a bit of extra space in your car I'd really appreciate it if you could take down my tent and backpack. I'm probably going to take the train down but it would be a lot easier to manage without the extra baggage :-)
