Just a reminder that the sign-up deadline for the National XC Champs is this coming Wednesday (25th Jan).
This year’s race will be taking place at Bolesworth Castle, 2 miles south of Tattenhall in Cheshire (south of Chester).
Given its location, we’re not expecting a big turnout for this one but a couple of people have already signed up. If you would like to take part please let me know by the end of Wednesday (I will be entering people on Thursday morning). Next year the Nationals should be returning to the (in)famous Parliament Hill Fields in London 🙂
Please find below a list of all the remaining XC events this season and their sign-up deadlines in case you haven’t already put these in your diaries.
If you are new to the club and are interested in taking part in any of the remaining events please let me know.
