The Trail Championship has also been decided, this year - the titles go to Liam Craine and Michelle Tickle.

Congratulations to these champions!

And it's not over yet as the road race championship is still to be decided. Here are some important races for September.

2nd Sept Red Rose Interclub - championship race.
The last of this year's interclub races - we need as many people out as possible. The women have a good chance of winning and the men can make it interesting in the open and the V60s!

12th Sept North West Road Relays - at Edge Hill.

19th Sept Northern Road relays - at Stanley Park Blackpool.

If you are unable to partake in this event and are free to marshal, please get in touch with Stan Taylor or Bob Massey.
Failing that feel free to contact me and I will forward your details through.

26th September - Mid Lancs Cross Country.

It's time to dig out those spikes and get yourself to Astley Park, Chorley for the first of this seasons Mid-Lancs cross country.

27th Sept - Run Preston 10K - championship race.

September looks like a busy month in our racing diary - hope to see you at many of these events.
