SEAA and National XC Championships

If you want to compete in either the SEAA (Brighton) or the National Cross Country Championships (Parliament Hill), and many have said they do, you will need to pay for these events in the club hut BEFORE 9th December.

As in previous years, £10 each covers entry fees and coach booking, refundable on the coach to those who compete.

I will need to spend time making these entries (in alphabetical order for one race forsooth!) and cannot take late entries though people can enter themselves: up to 15th December for SEAA and up to 12th January for the National.

I can’t promise mud on the Brighton course, but Parly Hill usually delivers………

Senior Men should be warned: at the SEAA race it’s 15K on a very hilly course.​

Yours

East Anglian League Final

Well done to the Senior Men and Under 13 Girls for making it to the final for the EAL. Signup sheets are now in the club hut so get your names down and indicate your preferred events.

There are no non-scoring places available at the finals so spaces in the team are limited. All those who sign up will be considered, however the final team selection will be made by the team manager and may be selected from any eligible club member.

If you can’t get to the track to sign up but would like to compete please contact Fraser, f_watts2003@hotmail.com , to sign up.
