SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Compass Sport Cup update from Club Captain

Team members must enter themselves via oentries on the course you have been asked to run. The club will refund 50% of the entry fee. There are a couple of options regarding the refund. The refund can be collected from the Club Captain on the day. Alternatively if you are planning to enter either the JK or British relay your refund will cover most of the entry fee. Please let the Club Captain know so he can have refunds available.
The team has been selected to try and achieve the highest possible score. As a result you may be asked to run a shorter course than you are used to, but points are important and your position will push other teams down.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Street League 8 - Eccleston

Anyone intending running at the next street league event on 8th February should refer to the details issued by event mapper and planner Andy Quickfall. This looks set to be a new variant for the league, which always thrives on innovation and allows different planners to use their own style, and should not be missed!

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Relay entries for JK and British

From our Club Captain Mark Edwards:

I need to know who is entering the JK relays this year. This year we are asking people to pay upfront for their entry, we would like to enter teams before prices increase. Club entry fee of £6 (normal price £12) to be sent to Mark Edwards - club captain by the middle of February. Any entries after this will rise to £7.50.

This years British Champs are on home turf (Helsington Barrows near Kendal) so we would like to enter as many relay teams as possible; again we would like to know if you are intending to enter asap. The club will subsidize your entry, meaning the entry cost will be £7.50 up to 19th March.

Juniors entering either event will pay just £3.50.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Street League tables after event 6

League tables for gross scores and for age adjusted scores have now been published. With their top five scores counting, runners can now start to drop a bad score, whilst others are just starting to accumulate five scores if they missed an event or two early in the season. Therefore there are a few changes in placing with more to come no doubt!

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Club Handicap at Sizergh Castle

South Ribble OC knows how to put on an entertaining day out! Over fifty club members and a few guests enjoyed the challenge set by Julian Lailey on his new Sizergh map, near Kendal, today. Slow going on the wet ground prevented anyone collecting all 30 controls within the allotted hour so the promised bonus point system was not needed. Most adjourned to the rather splendid Athenaeum Hall in Heversham for a social gathering and presentation of the annual trophies. Winner of the Handicap race for the second time (she won in 2006) was Rebecca Roberts, returning to her old form? Results for the race are here and RouteGadget is available here. Please add your routes and re-live the mass start race on your screen. Our photo shows the the race under way moments after the mass start. More photos of the race and prizegiving in the Gallery.
