LRRL Races Update
The winter league races are proving as popular as ever and entries for both Stilton 7 and Kibworth 6 have been and gone and both races sold out quickly. I hope everyone got a place who wanted one. I didn’t get a chance to get everything into the newsletter as I was on holiday while it was all going on. Keep an eye on the HRC website & Facebook Group for announcements of further race entries opening.

Next XC Race
The next Derby Runner cross country is on Sun 18th Feb at Grace Dieu Manor School. This is a fun one with a few river crossings per lap 🙂 More info to follow.
