With just a couple of weeks until the start of our Cross-country season, here are a few reminders and small changes to the PECO series, courtesy of our Race Secretary, Sima.
Sign-up and numbers
Firstly, it’s still not too late to sign-up! Great value at £15 for 5 events, which are fun, well-organised and a slightly different kind of team event. We have nearly matched-our squad size from last year and it looks as though we may do even better! For Peco to provide race numbers personalised with your name and club name, series entries must be completed by the end of the day on Sunday (10th November). Sima will then distribute the numbers (which stay with you all series) in advance of the 1st race.
Both series and individual race entries will remain open until 12.00pm (noon) on Friday 22nd November: anyone missing this deadline will have to enter on the day, and will not be eligible to ‘count’ towards team scores for this race. Link to entries here: PECO Racebest
Change of Calendar
The calendar has changed a little so you may need to revise your diaries as follows:
Race 1 – Sun November 24 – Temple Newsam
Race 2 – Sun December 15 – Middleton Park
Race 3 – Sun January 19 – Crimple Valley, Harrogate
Race 4 – Sun February 9 – West Park
Race 5 – Sun March 1 – Roundhay Park
Relays – Sun March 29 – TBA
Finally, we have been asked to jointly host Race 4 with Nidd Valley RR on Jan 19th 2020, taking over the event from Harrogate Harriers. We will therefore be looking out for volunteers in due course.
