Reminder: PECO Cross Country League – register your interest

pecoxcThe PECO XC season is fast approaching and this is probably the biggest event for Abbey Runners each year where we encourage all runners (new members and veteran; men and women; pensioners to school students; roadies, triathletes and fell folk) to come along and represent the club in these ‘wet and muddy fun’ team events!

Like last year we are allocating and distributing one number to each runner to wear for the entire series (or even if you only run one or two races).

We are putting the final touches to a beginners’ guide / frequently asked questions on this and will share this with you next week.

If you think that may want to run one or more of these races then please email your captain directly giving your name and date of birth:

For ladies, please email Liz Willis:   willisliz@live.co.uk

Fore men, please email Duncan Clark:  duncan_clark1@sky.com

For juniors, please email your coach, Mark Hetherington:  M.S.Hetherington@leeds.ac.uk

Don’t worry if you can’t run all the races, it will help f we have your name now rather than allocating numbers mid-season.  Your numbers will be available on the week before the first race and at the start of each race.
