SY Cross Country League Fixture 1, Longley Park 15-10-17

Please collect your cross country numbers from the cabin.  We still have some available for £8, it makes my job a lot easier if we can submit the entries before the event.  But numbers will be available on Sunday.  You need to purchase a club vest if you do not have one, available at the cabin Tuesday or Thursday.  Cross Country spikes of off road running shoes recommended.  Please arrive in plenty of time on Sunday and look for the DAC flag.  Good luck all!

Any last minute updates will be posted here.
