SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Next two events

We are fast approaching the competitive and social event of the year! This year's Club Handicap will take place in the rarely used Wellington Wood, just South of Lancaster, on Saturday 1st February. The map has been brought bang up to date and everyone has had a suitable handicap assigned and a personal map printed. In theory everyone will start and finish at the same time, or to put it another way, anyone could win the Handicap Trophy. Please read the details and be sure to bring a contribution to the Jacob's Join feast happening after the run. The following Wednesday sees event 8 in the Street League, using the Lancaster South area. See the event flyer.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Street League Trophies 2019-20

Those of you who ran at the Halton event are 'entered' for the John O' Gaunt Trophy, the nature of this award ensures that the winner may well only be decided at the final event of the series. However we do have winners for 2 of our other Trophies. Subject to any 'protests' Josie Greenhalgh and Darren Baker, running as a pair, are the winners of the Blackpool Tower Trophy, whilst John Embrey is the winner of the Preston Guild Trophy.

Congratulations to you all - Bob

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) A cracking start to the year!

Decent weather, testing courses and a good turnout helped make a success of today's race at Low Park Wood. This was the 19th New Year Cracker and they seem to get more popular by the year. Results are on-line here, and RouteGadget is here.
It was great to see so many relative newcomers coming to the event, with many coming back from last year’s New Year Cracker and from other events during the year.
