CC6 race at Dibden Inclosure this Sunday

This Sunday 22 November is the 2nd of the CC6 Races. The race will start at 09:30.

All club members 15 and over are encouraged to particpate.  The course, which is approximately 5 miles, will start from within the Dibden Inclosure, but follow a different route from the 2 previous years.  

It is a woodland course so there will be roots and mud to contend with.  To date there are no other obstacles that deserve special mention.

The Inclosure is a popular public area and parking, as a result the surrounding gravel track will be used for the runners parking.  Can I please ask you to try and car share. Anyone arriving just follow the marshal's direction for car parking and not use the main Inclosure car parkDirection to the Inclosure can be gained by clicking here

I look forward to seeing you on Sunday.

Ladies win at CC6 Fleming Park 

The first CC6 race at Fleming Park got off to winning ways for the Winchester ladies with them taking first place.  Karen Hazlitt leading the way for the Winchester team, and a welcome debut to Emma Rolfe.  The 4 mile course provided perfect conditions for cross country, with only a hint of mud, no wind and cool sunshine.  The men came fourth, although there were only 3 points between 2nd and 4th teams. The Sullivan's, Bonnor and Keir, packing 2 of the top 4 club runners, while Ian Debnam again leading the way for the club with a redoubtable 6th  It was nice to see 22 club competitors in all, on race day.  Scenic Dibden Inclosure hosts the next race on the 22nd November, new faces always welcome, remember all races are free to club members.  Let me know if you need to car share
