Forthcoming Training and Competition

Details below will be updated with results and league tables and update any race changes. The League will cost Sale H £1000 more this season because of increased fees due to necessary chip timing. Therefore I will not sanction entry for any doubters or unsure if they are racing or not, but later in the year entries may incur extra admin costs to the £7.00 fee your club pays for every individual.

Northern Cross Country Relay Championships 2021

I will be entering at least 4 teams in the Senior Men's Relay, these will comprise Senior Men, Junior Men and Veteran Men, I will be putting forward Junior Women to race in the Senior Teams and Clare McCarron will be entering and selecting similar teams,in the Senior Women's Relay. David Marsh will do the same in the Young Athletes Races.

N.B. From these Relays, along with the MACCL @ Wythenshawe.

I will be selecting the A, B & C Senior & Junior (U20) Teams for the National XC Relay.

I will be selecting teams capable of being in the medals with a goal of winning, and our other teams highly placed. You or your coach or both, need to contact me now to confirm your commitment to race in both the Northern & National. Many from my training group have put their names forward already for Sheffield and hope for selection to the National Relays. We can arrange car sharing if transport is a problem, shout out.
