Request for marshalls at the Northern XC Champs 14 Jan. Please see Kev Lincoln if you can help.
“We have been asked to marshal at the Northern XC Champs. at Pontefract Racecourse on Saturday 24th January 2015. The role involves setting up a section of the course and marshaling a crossing point, as we did 2 years ago. We have to be on site for 8am and finish about 4pm. Packed meals are provided.
I would be grateful if you are able to support this event from our Club, as we know how important marshals are for races to be successful.”

Cleethorpes 10k – 1 January 2015
It was a windy morning with approximately 430 athletes from across the region descending on Cleethorpes. Nice race, you don’t see much of the sea as the race goes inland but its a PB course if its not windy (unless your called Rose and you run a PB regardless)!
Full results here.
