A&T 2019-2020 Cross Country Championship

Here it is, the A&T 2019-2020 Cross Country Championship race line up.

I've decided to reduce the number of races this season and the minimum number to qualify for prizes 🏆. I have also removed the races that are just a bit too far to travel to. eg: 3 hour round trip to Ulverston for a 5k/10k is just a bit too much IMO. (Although if you want to use them as training runs your race bibs are valid for them - just let me know if you decide to go).

So feast your eyes on this. I hope you like the line up. I have pre-registered those of you who have contacted me. If you didn't tell me - don't worry it's not too late to enter just let me know asap and I can sort something out for you with the organisers.
I will post up a Facebook event for each race so you know what to do and where to go.
Excited and looking forward to our first race at Leigh. If you're not racing it's always great to see supporters out on the course here too. 💙

I'd be grateful if you could spread the word to any members not on Facebook or who don't see the blog updated.

As always please contact me if you want to discuss anything. Happy to help if I can.
