The 2nd Peco Cross Country is at Golden Acre Park, Leeds on December 10th . Full details are not on Peco website yet, I will advise when they are. It is  very local and we will car share again as  parking is at a premium at this event.  I hope we can get  a big  turnout to move our Teams up the  Divisions.  At this event there is no  after  race food so you will be charged only £2  to run on the day.

Peco Race 3 will be held on  January 7th at Roundhay Park, Leeds.  If there are any other members who want to join  the Cross Country team for this event plus the two after it ,please let me know  before  December 22nd.     You must be a paid up  Club member and have  an  URN number  (previously an England Athletics number) to be able to participate.  Thanks Eric.
