FOR THOSE PLANNING to run the next South East Lancs Cross-Country race on Saturday 18th November, the venue has now officially been confirmed as Tandle Hills. The entrance area to the start/finish area is a public path between numbers 58 & 60 on Tandle Hill Road, Royton OL2 5UX. Parking on the surrounding roads is limited - please be considerate of other road users and avoid blocking driveways. The course itself, using farmer's fields, can be very muddy - make sure you fasten your laces securely!  [David Emanuel]

EARLY CONFIRMATION OF a couple of 2024 RRR Club Championship races! The season will start again with the Stockport Daffodil 10K on Sunday 28th January 2024. In addition, due to difficulties in arranging a coach to take us to Dent, we are introducing an alternative race/coach trip - the well-established Coniston 14 on Saturday 23rd March. Entries to both races are already open - just follow the links. We hope that the Coniston trip will be a popular option even for those who don't want to run the race!  [David Emanuel]
