Club updates

Multi Terrain Dates

4th Sept – Royden Park – 1900
11th Sept – Harrison Drive – 1900
18th Sept – Thurstaston – 1830
25th Sept – Arrowe Park – 1830

Entry is still only £1 per runner in each race, club colours to be worn.

Remember when attending that some of the venues have parking charges and please don’t use the Derby Pool car park on the 11th Sept, note the change due to a high tide on the 18th Sept which is at the same time as the start but its level is low. (we’ll see) it is Multi-Terrain.

The last race we have to mashall and have 4 token issuers at the finish and a tail runner. More nearer the time.

Borders League (BL) and the Cross Country (XC) 2018/19 season

XC starts at 10:00 and BL at 11:00 unless stated otherwise.
BL on the 3/3/19 is in doubt at present as Wrexham have issues with road closures and they are looking at others to step in.

As voted at the AGM BL races are £1 per runner at each event.
