The club is hoping to field two teams in both the men’s and women’s events this year. The entries close on Monday 7th March – the race is at Sutton Park on Saturday 19th March. Obviously we need a mass turnout to meet the numbers required, and while we will be entering all the runners on our books, it would be helpful if you could indicate availability asap. While the women do not have to qualify a second team for the National, the men have to and need to finish in the top 25 teams to do so.
Would the women confirm their availability/non-availability with Keith Brackstone and the men with Mike Down.
These are the most popular and enjoyable races of the winter season, so please make every effort to support our teams.
We have earmarked a warm-up event on Saturday March 12 at Gloucester over 4X5K to help sort out the teams.
There is also a 6-stage Midland Masters championship accompanying the Men’s 12-stage and we are hoping to put a good vets team out to try and win that for the first time as we have not previously contested it.
