Awards Dinner Dance: Friday 5th February (posted 8 Feb)

A cracking night at Burntwood - a record attendance of 117 enjoyed the evening. Many thanks to Burntwood for their efficiency in dishing out the food - excellent as usual and to our band DB3. One hiccup on the night - apologies to Julie Stafford who should have received the trophy given to Gail Wrangles! Fortunately We were able to rectify the mistske shortly afterwards.

Oulton Park Half Marathon: 28 February (posted 8 Feb)

Unfortunately there wasn't enough support to hire the lcoach, however we are currently looking at another option - more information next week!

Just one race to go in the series (Roundhay Park 14 Feb). We really need a strong turnout:-

Men's Team facing relegation from League 1 to 2

Ladies Team have a chance of promotion to the Premier League - currently ln 3rd spot but only half a point off second and with a superior count back.

Terry Forrest is currently 2nd in the Men's table and Becci Winter is in 1st spot in the Ladies League. Karen Ball is second in the F35 Category and Kenny Lawrenson 2nd in the M70 (despite being 75!). Fingers crossed. Check out full details on the Peco XC pages.

New Club T Shirts (posted 10 Feb)

The Vest t-shirt design is coming to the club. This means that these t-shirts can be used in races as an alternative to the club vest. They are made of exactly the same material as the club vests.


They come in a Male and Female specific cut and both have round necks. They are a loose fit, so if you want a tighter fit i.e closer to the vest then you need to go down a size, i.e if you are large vest and want a tighter fit you need to order a medium. There is also a long sleeve version available. (Just a note the shirts in the images are samples and the club logos and blue band will sit a bit higher on the final version)


They will retail to club members at £16 for short sleeve and £18 for long sleeve.


Simon is placing an order on Monday 22nd Feb, if you wish to order email him via the kit page 

with the following details: cut i.e male/female, size and if you want long sleeve or short. Delivery will be approx 6 weeks, so will likely be late April we receive items.


ORDER DEADLINE: SUNDAY 21st FEB - any questions - see Simon at training.
