JOK Chasing Sprint 2007 Flier

JOK are proud to present the:

JOK Chasing Sprint 2007

Banstead Heath, Saturday 24th February

The Chasing Sprint contains all the excitement of a chasing start in one day. Competitors run two short courses, the second of which will have starts determined by times in the first - and so first runner past the post wins.

Why not combine this event with the MV National Event the next day to make a weekend of racing?

Terrain Banstead Heath is a gem amongst south-east areas. It is fairly flat and consequently fast, however there are areas and bands of technical pits and earthworks which will force you to slow down and be careful. A fair splattering of paths, the vegetation is varied, various types of forested areas and open. You won't get bored, especially with the courses and the race format. A treat for all and an ideal Chasing Sprint location.
Parking Street parking on New Road and Mill Road between Grid Refs TQ231557 and TQ241557, on Landranger sheet 187 / Explorer sheet 146. Please share transport where possible as space is limited, and be aware that you may be some distance from Assembly.
