SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Harvester Trophy day/night relay event

The Harvester is a 7 or 5 person relay event with both night and day legs. SROC won the handicap class a couple of years ago, and managed to field two teams last year, but alas no trophy. This year the event is to be held in South Wales on excellent terrain over 20/21 June, with the option of a middle distance race on the Saturday to make a weekend of it. SROC hopes to enter at least two teams again, and will organise transport if there is sufficient demand. Everyone camps together close to the start and finish. More details here. See this Message Board topic. Please contact Sarah Watkins if interested, as soon as possible. Everyone welcome!
