Thomsons Cycles Halloween Howler

For anyone who has the urge for a bit of fun cross racing this Sunday, there is a non-series race happening over at Gleniffer Braes, Paisley. It is a Halloween theme so it's aimed at being fun – even though it always is anyway! So why not stick on a scary costume and come and get filthy in Paisley!

We are raising funds for Accord Hospice.

Please get to sign-on in plenty of time. Sign-on will close promptly 20 minutes before each race start time. This is to enable full start sheets to be passed to the commissaries and commentator.

There will be queues for each race category and a separate one for assigning timing chips.

Helmets must be worn when practicing on the course.

Please take care when warming up and practicing as this is a public facility with dogs and young children on the loose.

The start/finish area is in the main arena next to the Sergeantlaw Car Park where you will find tasty grub being served by Euan and his team from the world famous Grange Kitchen.

Prizes for the seniors, vets, ladies, juniors, youths and Under12 riders will be custom medals and loads of bike goodies from Thomsons Cycles.
There will also be prizes up for grabs for the best Halloween costumes.
Fastest full lap of the day wins £50!!

1. Robertson Car Park (Gleniffer Road). Then 500m walk/ride on path through park to race start area.
2. Braehead Road Car Park. Then 1 mile walk/ride through park on path to start area (you meet the race course after approx 1/2mile then follow it to the start) - good warm-up
3. VERY limited parking at Sergeantlaw Road beside race start/finish area (this will likely be occupied from early on, so best to go straight to Braehead Road or Robertson car parks).

Online entry is now closed, but entry on the day will be available.

Hope to see you all there!
