North Staffs - Keele University - 19th November - CANCELLED FOR ALL AGE GROUPS

North Staffs - Keele University 19th November - Cancelled for ALL age groups. 

The Individual & Team Competitions will now be all 3 of 3 races to count.
 
"The League Secretary, with agreement of other League Officers, has unfortunately decided that it is not feasible to stage any of the races on the courses that were devised at Keele, due to the numbers of athletes and spectators that would be in the confined areas,  which could result in accidents.
We wish to acknowledge the work done by Vicky and her colleagues of the Keele University Athletic Union to host the event for the League, after giving her late notice of our concerns, she has asked about the possibility of using other parts of the Campus or Associated Grounds, but these cannot be made available to the League.

The Individual & Team Competitions will be all 3 of 3 races to count."

2016 Cross Country

Cross Country will begin this year with the first race in the North Staffs season on the 1st October at Winsford. The North Staffs league are struggling to find a fourth venue which could mean that the season will be over three races. I hope we can field a good team for all of three races as we have the potential to place well in divisions. The Manchester league starts on October 15th at Heaton Park. We have always managed to field a good team at these events and I hope we can continue to do so this year.
