First Cross Country Fixture of 2019/2020 season

Well done to all who turned out for the club at Epsom Downs this morning. I am reliably told that it’s our largest turnout for a fixture to date! Some very impressive runs as well – watch this space for the results as soon as they are announced.

If there are any envious parents out there who’d like to run for the senior Shufflers and recapture those halcyon school-day moments running round the local park in the mud and rain, then please don’t hesitate to come forward. Our fixtures can be found at – you would be more than welcome. All fixtures between 5 and 6 miles and 11:00 on a Sunday morning!

Cross Country Update

Don’t forget that this Sunday is the first of four fixtures in the Junior Cross-Country League that we participate in. The venue is Epsom Downs and the first race is 10:45.

If you would like to take part or are interested in taking part, please speak to Steve, . We have 11 runners confirmed for Sunday, which is a good starting point – but obviously, we would like as many as possible.

Steve’s mobile is 07952-194662 if there are any issues regarding Sunday morning.

Cross Country League

The first in this season’s Cross-Country League fixtures takes place this Sunday, 3rd November, on Epsom Downs, KT18 5PP.

The under 11s, Age 8 to Year 6, commence at 10.45 over a distance of 2.2 kilometres.
Under 13s, Year 7 and Year 8 commence at 11.15 over 3.2 kilometres

You must wear team colours – and tops will be available to purchase on the day for £20. The race entry is free.

Sheen Shufflers will have a sail banner up, so you’ll find us pretty easily.

It would help if you could let Steve know in advance that you are running at or if you make a decision to go on the day, we’ll see you there!

Any questions – please ask!

Street Orienteering Hampton Wick

The Street Orienteering season kicks off on Tuesday 10th September for 2019/2020 in Hampton Wick.
The venue is The Lion Pub, 27 Wick Road, Hampton Wick, TW11 9DN. Food and drink is available for purchase afterwards. Due to electronic timing you can start anytime between 18:00 and 19:30.
You have one hour to find as many clues as you can – race, run or walk as you wish! It’s certainly not rocket science (or I wouldn’t be doing them!). A specially produced street map will be provided, as well as a timing chip, so all you need to bring is some running gear, a watch and a pen. You only have an hour to accumulate as many points as possible; over the hour and you will lose points accordingly. You can run in groups if you are worried or just not sure.
All under 16s must run with an adult (insurance purposes). It’s like a glorified treasure hunt. Entry is under £5, so what could be a better way to spend a Tuesday evening?
If you are not sure, and would like to talk to someone before taking part – just ask me, Bob, or respond to this notice.
Any information that you may need on Street-Os can be found here:

Maps are not cheap to produce, so it would help the organisers if you could prewarn them that you are coming via Facebook
