A great turnout for this championship race. A big thank you to Steve  Robertson who brought the tent. Next race is the Sherman Cup / Davison Shield on the 5th January which is part of the Harrier League you don’t need a special number it’s back to using your own number which you were given at the beginning of the season. There are 3 races left to compete for the club championships so get them spikes on and have a go.

The ladies were placed 11th Team with Amy Fuller in 42nd place in 37.56. Andrea Banner 44th in 38.02. Catherine Lowes 68th in 39.11 and Charlotte Baston 69th in 39.19. Great packing by the ladies and a very respectable placing. Well ran ladies.

Quick q on one of the points above: Thought the Club champs were only on the first 3 XC fixtures of the season, not the full series?
Well done everyone at the weekend
