Races next winter

Please see below date for Borders League and Cross Country for next winter. As far as I know these are finalised. There has been quite a bit of shifting around, mainly venues but some dates in CC too.

Apart from the CC League and the NWCC (which is back at Northop) you will see that both the Welsh CC Champs and the Welsh Masters are in Denbighshire this year. It is important that north Wales clubs take part in these. We complain when they are in south Wales, so we need to show that we value them being in North Wales. Dates in diaries please.

And just reminder - last time the Welsh CC Champs were in Northop, Buckley took the bronze medal behind Cardiff and Swansea!!!! Lets do it again!
