Macclesfield Harriers & Athletic Club

First XC of the year this Saturday, runners needed !!

From James Noakes... Hi all, The first match of the season (for the North Staffs league) is this Saturday 28 Sep at Winsford.  

For the North Staffs league we need a team of at least 4 people at each of the 4 races for Macc H to score as a club in the league (it doesn't have to be the same 4 at each race)

All the XC races in both the North Staffs league and Manchester League are free for you to enter, the club pays the entry fees.

The details of the league are at:   http://www.nsccl.co.uk/ 

Please can you let me know if you are available to run or not. For the first match last year only Mark Wheelton ran (and managed to claim 20 points in the club cross country champs!) but unfortunately we did not then score as a club for the rest of the league despite having sufficient numbers for the other matches.  This year it would be really great if we could have at least 4 for all the matches!  

It doesn't matter if you are not available for the other matches or just want to give it a try as a one off (as long as we can get sufficient numbers at the later matches!).  Unfortunately I will not be running this Saturday as will be running the Macc Half on the Sunday but can coordinate arrangements for those who are available.

For the Manchester Area Cross Country League, the first match is at Heaton Park on Saturday 19 Oct (http://www.bbresults.co.uk/wp/?page_id=12).  Those who competed last year will be automatically entered for this season (unless you notify me that you are unable to take part this season), but it would be helpful if you could confirm your intentions about taking part in this league.  If you have not competed previously and would like to do so, please let me have your full name, DOB and EA number (and confirm that you are a paid up member of Macclesfield Harriers).  It doesn't matter if you can only commit to one match, but the more the better. 

Look  forward to your continued support for this season. Cheers James
