Watch this space for more details later.
I am in whenever it happens
Definitely not running as I hate mud but happy to support by recording results again and will take photo's. Can do all apart from Standelone.
I will try race 1 as long as you don't mind slow runners competing? Hate mud but doing this for Vikki as promised her would try one XC
For some reason, I've decided to give this a go
Hi, I would like to do at least 2 cross country, but cant do standalone. Many thanks
I have emailed Giles as Vikki inspired me to try cross country - she made it look fun despite my reservations regarding cold, wet and muddy conditions! I will hopefully be able to do 2 or 3 of the events.
Ian and I are up for it. I will email Giles.

I'm hoping to do some again this time
I will give the first one a go so I will email Giles. Jon will do it again this year

Can I just get a check on the post code on the calendar for 12 November as it goes to the housing estate in Wootton. I believe it’s at Delapre Abbey/ golf course which is a different postcode
Hi, NN4 6UU is the postcode for the HQ - Northampton High School. The race itself is at Delapre Abbey which is about 1.5 miles (walk)away.
