SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Golden Jubilee Challenge Match - SROC v SN (Southern Navigators)

In 1965, on Leith Hill, Surrey, there was an inaugural 'North v South' inter-regional event. The North represented by SROC and PFO and the South by SN and OO. The South, with athletes such as Bruce Tulloch, Martin Hyman, Roger Bannister and Mike Murray ran out clear winners. In 1989, as part of SROC 25th anniversary celebrations, Southern Navigators came to Tockholes for a re-match. On this occasion the North triumphed.

As part of our Golden Jubilee celebrations we have challenged the 'South' again. The match will take place at Bentley Wood, near Atherstone (OD event) on Sunday 9th March. The club is planning to take a coach to the event (pick up points in Lancaster and Preston ) with the possibility of a social gathering afterwards. SROC members will be allowed to run any course. Travel costs will be available at the club handicap in January. If you are interested in taking part can you email me.
