Cross-Country and Track Dates
The summer is gradually coming to a close and the dark nights are drawing in, so it looks like we will have to start thinking about the winter training.
Looking back over the six Summer Specials. They once again proved to be successful with a number of members orgainising a Special for the first time. Thanks to all who organised or who led a route and to Geoff Stone for co-ordinating the Specials.
Back to this autumn and the Tuesday evening training. As the Winter Specials went down well last winter, this autumn/winter we will give them another go. Likewise for the Handicaps which will have to be reduced to a 5 mile Training Handicap, due to the lack of any lightening near to the turn-around of the longer route. We have tried other alternatives but for safety reasons, car parking and a relatively flat course, the shortened 10k route is the best option. If anyone has any other ideas I would be pleased to hear.
