Online entry is no open.  News for anyone who has raced our cross before, course changes this year means less climbing (hopefully that is welcome news).  Please help me by promoting this to your clubs as well.  I know it’s not track but a great way to keep your fitness up during the winter and for this race at least you will get to see me flapping about trying to keep things organised, so it’s a bit like Wednesday nights.
