Please note especially the requirement about car sharing — minimum 3 to a car. As usual we will be organising a car share from Hinckley for this race, so look out for more info nearer the time here or on the members’ Facebook group. Edit: Car Share Info Here

It would be great to see lots of members taking part in the XC this season. Remember it’s only 3 quid (and 1 quid for juniors) and it’s a lot of fun! All members are welcome and encouraged to take part, it doesn’t matter how slow you think you are or if you haven’t done one before! You will need some trail shoes because it is likely to be very muddy. A HRC vest will also be needed and these are available for £15 – contact Penny Masser. I (Nick) am also happy to take vest orders and pass them to Penny.

There is no need to book a place in these races – they are “turn up on the day” and open to all members of league clubs. England Athletics affiliation is NOT needed to race in Derby Runner league.
