The 5th fixture of this seasons North East Harrier League comes to the grand setting of Alnwick this Saturday 1st March. It`s a lovely course with the usual aspects of XC, mud, hills, etc, set within the back drop of Alnwick Castle. Great spectator view points so remember to smile for the camera. Lets have a huge turnout from the club to help secure our league status and in the case of the men improve on our league position as its still all to play for in the final 2 fixtures. The juniors as always get everything under way just after 12pm with the Ladies race starting at 1:15pm and the senior Men’s race setting off after 2pm. Check out the club facebook page for car sharing and travel arrangements.
