Summer series Information

The final results after Leek Cricket Club are out. Please follow the 'Our Races' menu, or follow the quick link on the LHS of the page to view them.

The initial Overall Rankings for those who have raced at least 7 races is also published.

Please note that as we have introduced an U23 group, the results will display slightly stangely for now, as the age categories were set up for Vets. So the U23s will appear as age 16 (as this is their minimum age), and the 'Open' seniors will appear as '23', wich would be the minimum age for that group.

We will try and see if we can make it clearer, but I don't want to risk breaking the database mid series.

 Important. Please do not fill n more than one entry form per series. It will lead to you not qualifying for the T-shirts, as you will appear as two (or more) runners with the same name. You do still have to come to the sign on desk to let us know that you are running.

Photos of the event can be found at Mick Hall Photos. Many thanks to Mick, who's photos have helped us decifer scribbles on entry forms, and spider writing on finishing results forms ;-)

There will be 10 races once again, starting on Thursday 26th of May 2016, and from then on weekly each Thursday for 10 weeks in total. There will be a break in the sequence after Race 9.

The Venues and times of the Senior Races are shown below.

Sign up on the night for one race or the full series.

It is important to bring your race number to each race, or we will not be able to tally ll your races for the series prizes.

You must run in the appropriate race for your age. You will be automatically disqualified if you run in the wrong race.
