NYSD XC Fox Rush

Here are the provisional results for yesterday’s NYSD XC at Fox Rush, if you find any errors please let me know.

Many thanks to Graham Hall and the members of New Marske Harriers for hosting the meeting. Despite the weather over the last few weeks the meeting went ahead with some slight modifications to the course to avoid the worst wet areas. Although there was some standing water and plenty of mud a good days racing was achieved. Hope you all enjoyed it.


The next meeting has had to be transferred to Acklam Grange School, Middlesbrough, this is due to some building work at Summerhill being delayed because of the weather. The date is still  Sunday 8th December, I will send out the details shortly.
