Ok Crookites. The first fixture in the 2016/2017 NEHL XC Season is less than 5 weeks away - last year proved to be successful for the club with our men finishing a magnificent 4th in our first season back in Division 1 and our ladies securing their 2nd Division survival on the very last day. Both squads have the potential to improve and particularly there is no reason why our Crook Ladies can not be challenging for promotion to Division 1 this coming season.
With this in mind we are now taking names from everyone who wishes to be registered for the XC Season. The set up is the same as last year - give your name and your £2 registration fee to myself (PJB), Rob or Geoff ASAP. If we don't have your name and fee you won't be registered and therefore won't be able to compete at Wrekenton on Saturday 1st October. I will put a post on our Crook AC Facebook page where you can sign up or alternatively see us at the club on Tuesday night.
For Senior athletes your £2 gets you 6 NEHL XC races plus The Sherman Cup - 7 races in total.
The fixtures are -
Sat 1st Oct Wrekenton
Sun 9th Oct Druridge Bay
Sat 19th Nov Sherman Cup - Temple Park
Sat 26th Nov Thornley Hall Farm
Sat 10th Dec Aykleyheads - North East XC * NOT NEHL
Sat 7th Jan Herrington Park
Sat 28th Jan Knowsley Safari Park - Northern XC* NOT NEHL
Sat 25th Feb Wollaton Park - National XC* NOT NEHL
Sat 4th March Alnwick Castle
Sat 1st April Thornley Hall Farm
Please let us know ASAP if you wish to be registered and try to settle up with your £2 straight away as it makes our job so much easier.
Remember - No name & No fee = No number = No run!!?
Let's all look forward to another great season of XC running for Crook AC and build on our success from last year. Rumour has it - The Crook AC "Tent Bar" courtesy of Eleanor will be open for business!!!
Times are approximate - please don't take as gospel, we'll try to work around them, but listen out for the whistle calling your race. Make sure you're up there in time to get warmed up and to the start.
