Saturday 21st March Reigate Priory AC Parkrun Tourism and Grand Prix event 2 @ Worthing

On Saturday 21st March Worthing Parkrun is not only our Parkrun Tourism destination, but also the second event in the Reigate Priory AC Grand Prix 2020 season.

The Reigate Priory AC Grand Prix is a great opportunity for any member to gain a running award in 2020. You can read more about the Grand Prix here.

We will travel in minibuses to Worthing and will finish off by having Breakfast in The Burlington Hotel on Worthing sea front.

We want to invite Reigate Priory AC members from the senior section to take part in this event as part of the Grand Prix, but additionally we hope that parents of junior members and accompanied junior members will also come along, and as long as there is space non-members are very welcome come along. Note that for club members, we want to encourage you to wear your Reigate Priory AC vest.

Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday 21st March.
