SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Street League

The updated Street League tables are now on the web for you to study during the festive season. We are now at halfway and the Gross Score table is being very keenly fought whilst Jane is establishing a good lead on the Age & Gender Adjusted. How will things change over the second half of the series? What New Years Resolutions will be made in an effort to change things? See you in the New Year at Torrisholme - New map and, I believe, a new scale to keep us on our mettle - see you there - Bob

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Cottam results

Greetings - the provisional results for Cottam are now on the web - as I say in the Organisers comments we have tried to be as lenient as we could but if you have a query then please get back to me. I think you were all great to turn up and run in such awful weather. What was particularly frustrating/annoying was that it 'targeted' the running window of the event. Even given the weather the event did have it's moments. Yes it is true that Tony Varley was within the 75 minutes!! We also had one regular Street Leaguer who, despite being injured, turned up to walk the event - just goes to show how addictive it can be. I also gather that we a had a couple of people trying to perfect their 'walking on water' trick at control 42 - thank goodness it wasn't very deep. Once again many thanks for turning up, the numbers far exceeded my expectations. Have a good Christmas and I look forward to seeing you all at Torrisholme - Bob

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.
