Senior females Keith Brackstone,

Senior men Chris Elson,

The only other event we are aware of that weekend is the Doynton half-marathon the following day. Please make sure, if you express your intention to run, that you are available. It matters in relays if people pull out. Cost per team is £53.65 (price includes GB Max admin fee) but we have been offered one free team so likely cost would be around £12.50/person, but we’ll confirm that price when we know how many teams we have. This fee is to be paid up front to Bristol & West AC. The journey time from Bristol is 35 minutes.
