Peco Cross Country 17/18 – Race 5 @ TEMPLE NEWSAM (11/02/18)

A great venue for this end of season run.  Can we get a massive turn out for this run and climb the league?  

Men start at 11.00 with the Ladies at 11.10.

The Peco organiser has commented many runners are competing but not registering and therefore not paying. He will be checking after race 5 that the number of runners equates to the amount of fees paid, and threatening points deductions for offending Clubs.  

Finally the Peco Relays are to be held 25/03/18. This was a great event in 2017. It is teams of 3.The venue is not decided yet but most likely to  be in Leeds. Any member of the Club can participate you  DO NOT   need to have registered for Cross country to participate. When the venue is announced  I will publicise that and what the course is.  Last year it was multi terrain.

Thanks, Eric
