SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Slip sliding away

Night Street League number 2 in Lancaster subjected runners to a lethal combination of wet leaves and stone setts, making the going almost as slippery as ice in some parts. Nevertheless most enjoyed the fiendish course setting of Mark Saunders. Share your route on RouteGadget and find out who was tempted to cross the river. Did anyone get all the 50 pointers? For the next event at Ormskirk can anyone wanting food (home made scouse or blind scouse i.e. vegetarian) please let Norman Hall know in advance. Cost will be £3.50 per head, payable on the night.
