Just to confirm the details for the mob match, on Saturday 9th December,
against South London Harriers. The venue is of course, Farthing Downs, Coulsdon,
with a start time of 2.30pm 
Changing, free showers, and refreshments are as usual at the Clubhouse, at 194a, 
Brighton Road, in Coulsdon. For anyone not knowing it, this is the A23, the main 
London-Brighton road. The Clubhouse is on the left-hand side (west) as you drive 
towards London, about 800m north of Coulsdon South railway station. The entrance 
is set back from the pavement, slightly behind the Comrades Club. There is a sign 
above the entrance.
The race will again be over Farthing Downs. Anyone going straight to the start 
should turn first right (if heading towards London) after Coulsdon South station, 
into Marlpit Lane. After 600 metres take the second right into Downs Road. This 
will take you to the downs. The actual race start is close to the bottom of the 
downs, on the right hand side but out of sight from the roads.
Parking is difficult.  Please ensure all runners and supporters do not park on the 
narrow road that runs across the downs. This is dangerous, breaks local bylaws
and could lead to future races being banned. 
Near the Clubhouse there is some parking on the main road, but this is restricted. 
Best is to use the pay and display Lion Green Road Car Park. This is the first left after 
Coulsdon South station when heading north, towards London, behind the Clubhouse.
