After an absence due to Covid, the Charles Hicks Challenge is set to take place again this year. Watch out for entry notices. The course will likely be similar to the one in 2019, involving and initial straight run out to Ash lock and back then descending a substantial part of the Deepcut lock flight, involving lots of portage practice, then…ascending a substantial part of the Deepcut lock flight, involving lots more of portage practice! Great if you are in training for winter endurance racing.
We need people to assist with the organisation of the race: Race organiser, marshalls, starters, timers, runners, refreshments…the list goes on. Please get in touch if you want to get involved (or if you don’t want to but can be bullied into it)!
