Congratulations to all who took part, particularly to the teams from Debenham who achieved 1st place in the individual pairs event and who also won the team competition and to the Roughham & Charsfield teams who were placed 2nd & 3rd respectively.

Our Next Events:

Christchurch Park

30th June 2019

The third event in the Simon Peck Summer Series sees us back in the centre of Ipswich, in Christchurch Park. The venue has a variety of features, including open parkland, ponds, wooded areas & an arboretum with a complex path network. The grassed areas generally result in fast course times, although the contours & inclines are not to be dismissed lightly! There will be a choice of course, a shorter one at 2 to 2.5 Km & a longer one at 3 to 4Km, although you may travel further, depending on your route-planning. Newcomers to the sport will be most welcome: it's an excellent area in which to learn the basics.

Registration will be in the Bandstand in the Arboretum, so please use the Henley Road entrance on the west side of the park,  IP1 3SH (TM 161 453). Parking will be on Henley Road or one of the adjacent side streets.
