National X-Country Relays
The English Cross-Country Association will be holding their National Relays at Berry Hill Park Mansfield on Saturday 3rd November.
Last year the club had a healthy four teams in the competition and we will be looking for something similar or better this year.
The Senior Women’s race starts at 2.10pm while the men’s race follows at 2.40pm. Entry is free to all paid up club members. The club policy being that we encourage our members to represent the club in any national and regional relays.
The closing date for entries is Friday 12th October, so if you are interested in running, drop me an email or see me at training.
Midland Road Relays
The club were due to field a men’s team in the Midland Road Relays last Saturday at Sutton Park, Sutton Coldfield. Just two days before the event was due to take place we had an email to say the event was cancelled due to an outbreak of E Colli, attributed to the park. This was obviously a disappointment not only to Belper Harriers but also to the many other clubs in the event. Subsequently we have heard that the National Championships which were due to take place in October at the same venue have also been cancelled.
This could have a positive response on the X-country Relays with more club runners taking part due to the cancellation of both the Midlands and National Road Relays.
