The coveted Blackpool Tower Trophy, traditionally fought over at the nearest Street League event of the season, has been awarded this year to Quentin Harding. The rules state that the highest rate of scoring (points per hour) on any course, and corrected for age, wins the trophy; except that no-one may win more than once in their life! So congratulations to Quentin, enjoy it for the next 12 months or so as it will never be yours again! The league scores have been updated after five events, half way through the season.

If you ran at Blackpool and wondered where the Nashes were; never fear, they just ran on a different night! The results page now has their scores added. If ever you can't make it to a Street League you can contact the organiser to obtain a copy of the map, and time yourself on another night. You must return your answer sheet before the next event, and you are not permitted to score more than the winner on the night!

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Urgent call to all club members! Compass Sport Cup qualifier January 2008

There is already the nucleus of a team signed up for the Compass Sport Cup match at Frodsham Hill on 13th January. See details on this message board thread. To ensure that we move forward to the final we need more people to contact Sarah Watkins before 21st December. Everyone can join the team, even if you don't expect to be in the top few on your course. You will still help by reducing the scores of runners from other clubs. This year we are reinstating subsidised runs: you pay only 3 pounds for seniors and 1 pound for juniors. So come on and let's see South Ribble in the final where we belong!
