The first event of the 2016/17 season is on 27 November at Temple Newsam. This does however clash with the Barnsley 10k - a Grand Prix event. There is nothing we can do about this so its down to individual choice. Other dates are 18 December, 22 January, 19 February and 5th March.
Are you up for a bit of a challenge? The run is tough but the post race BBQ is even tougher and lasts longer! Come along and enjoy a very sociable weekend under the stars. Camping, dormitories and Yurts (sheds) available. Lesley Needham arranging - get your name(s) down asap.
Roy Young completed his 116th Marathon last Saturday (13th this year!) to take his total to 116 - one more than club legend Ken Bingley. Will he do more?

A brand new half marathon from the guys who run the Tissington Half. A similar run along a disused railway line but its out and back and through tunnels! Sets off from Bakewell to Monsal Head (towards Buxton) and back. The club have secured an allocation of 70 places at a discounted entry of £17. We can look at putting on a coach. If you're interested please let Stewart know asap.
The timing fits in well for most Spring Marathon training schedules - but remember it is on Mother's Day!

The winning team:
The lucky 3 our of the bag were:
Stephen Wong, Ian Vogan and Guy Malam. Three reserves - Alison Jean-Baptiste, Ian Richardson and Cate Allen.
6 club places now all gone - Mel and Tim Owen, Jeff Denton, Gemma Lund, Sam Sherburn and Sue Eaton.
All tables now updated.
In League 1 Ian Richardson still has a chance of matching Becci Winter's 2nd place score. Rich Ritucci has moved into 3rd place but could be pushed out by Ian.
The top 3 in League 2 look to be just outside the reach of the only remaining challenger, Julie stafford. Martyn Stearn looks secure at the top but there is a vert outside chance that Paul Lawnrence or Will Walker could edge him - whilst they are still fighting it out for 2nd spot.
The race for top spot in League 3 is still likely to go down to the wire but the odds have swung towards Andrew Nuut finishing ahead of Paul Zywicki. Paul cannot compehend how he beat Andrew by 2 places at Barnsley but fell a further 7 points behind him! Amie Gowing was so confident of finishing 3rd shat she flew to Rome to celebrate instead of racing at Barnsley!
League 4 sees Sue Eaton and Caroline copeland fighting it out for 2nd spot, with Sue having a slight advantage. Sarah wilkinson's late surge for a top 3 spot is likely to fall just short - but well done Sarah.
Becci Winter and Emma Evans are unassailable in 1st and 2nd in the Ladies League. Julie Stafford still holds 3rd place but is under pressure from Donna Bailey and Liane Warren who have a race in hand.
Martyn Stearn can still possibly find the 1.5 points he needs to match Simon Bennett at the top of the Male Vets League . Mick Knowles is now secure in 3rd unless there are any errors in the scoring!
In the Ladies Vets league Gail Tombs and Julie Stafford have the 1/2 spots. Helen Wainwrights scoring was wrong last month and so has dropped down a few places - sorry Helen. Sue Knowlesw is now 3rd with the only threats being from Sue Eaton (long shot) and Liane Warren.
It will be all over before Christmas - then we can all start again.
Many thanks to the members who turned out for the NT photoshoot - hopefully all will appear in the publicity material.
35-40 (not sure how many because it was dark and blinded by the headtorches) enjoyed a club run with a difference - running around the paths and trails of Nostell parkland. Thoroughly enjoyed by everyone - another run is a distinct possibility!
Don't forget its the NT Night run on the 14 January - consider entering or volunteering to help out.
Well we managed to turn out in good numbers despite the conflict with the Barnsley 10k - with the ladies outnumbering the gents. Special mention for Alice Copeland who proudly wore the club vest in the junior 2m and the Nostell Juniors - all having their first experience at XC.
A full report will apear on the Peco XC League pages in asap.
