After what has been a turbulent and challenging period for grass roots athletics, we are pleased to announce that we now have dates for some fantastic team events.
First the road relays, which offer a great opportunity to not only test yourself against of the best runners around at a high profile competition, but also complete in a proper team like situation have been confirmed as follows:
Northwest Road Relays – September 11th Birchwood Park, Warrington
Northern Athletics Road Relays – September 18th – Redcar
Please contact either Simon Collins or Emma Essex-Croby if you wish to take part : firstname.lastname@example.org
Off-road the brilliant Calderdale Way Relay returns on September 26th. This Britain’s biggest off road club event and is great fun. If you wish to run, please contact Steve Taylor
There are still places in the Green Drive 5 (October 24th), which doubles as the Lancashire county 5 mile championships and the Preston 10 (November 21st) which is also the Lancashire and Northern 10 mile championship races. It would be great to have a good turn out at these events and hopefully a good few of you will come away with individual or team medals!
We will also need volunteers for the Preston10
