This week: XC & LRRL Updates, Livingston Relays, Social Night
Cross Country Update
The winter XC season has come to a close with the final Derby Runner League race at Bosworth Battlefield which our club hosted. A great day for all the club running, marshalling etc. and welcoming the other clubs to our event. Full teams again for the last two races of the season meant that we maintained out places in the top division of each league (men, ladies and mixed) and avoided the relegation drop and it was great to see so many new members taking part in their first XC this season. Bosworth Results
The road league is now also underway and the first race was the Stilton 7 in Feb – Stilton Results
The next league race is the Desford 5 this Sunday for which we have got 36 names from the club entered, which is fantastic, and many new members doing their first race.
Car share for Desford 5: Meet from 9am at the old leisure centre car park (Trinity Vicarage Lane LE10 0BU) for setting off by 9:15. There is also a group going to cycle over setting off from the same place at 9.
Kibworth 6 Rescheduled
The Kibworth 6 LRRL race, which was cancelled due to the bad weather, has now been rescheduled for Sunday 27th May. Existing entries remain valid for the race. If you can no longer run, you can transfer your place to someone else: Link to transfer place
On 29th April in Braunstone Park, Leicester — the Livingston Relays was great fun last year and we would like to do it again. This is team relays of 3 miles per person (mens teams of 4, women’s teams of 3, and U15 teams too). Please let Céline know if you are would like to run a 3 mile leg so we know how many teams to enter.
