Home News Hi



from BHAA Just a quick note to remind you of the cross-country races this weekend. Billed as “old style cross-country” – which means it will be tough. But don’t be afraid of it.

 Anyone who was there last year, when it was very, very cold, still enjoyed it. Check out the video on the BHAA website – always get a great reaction when shown at races. I am told the surface will not be as ploughed up as last year. Give it a go. The women’s race is a bit longer than usual due to the configuration of the course and laps.
