SUMMER SERIES 2012
Your feedback from the summer series was interesting, not least because of the totally opposite points of view expressed. Some of you take it seriously, others just try for the minimum number of races! It is a challenging series, and will test some more than others - it's meant to have a training effect as well as the competitive and social aspects currently enjoyed.
For 2012 there will be 22 races, 11 off-road, 11 on-road. For each there will be a competition with your best 5 races to count. Medals in each for the first three in all age categories (with 5 year gaps). The overall competition remains the same with your best 8 results, from any of the 22 races to count . We shall be starting slightly earlier this year, spreading the competition over 9 months, giving adequate chance to anyone ill or injured to recover and finish the series.
The first race this year will be The Cloud Nine race at Congleton on March 4th, they are not doing entry on the day this year so pre entries only, there shouldnt be any problem with numbers as they have never yet reached their limit. The second race is The Trafford 10K, on March 11th, this does reach its limit, so enter soon. It's a fast course and some of you seem keen to have it in the competition, so here's your chance! Subsequent races are Chester Spring 5, April 4th, and Whitley 10k, April 15th. We are just awaiting a few more details , but the full list will be available within 10 days. Note – The Gun run and the Christelton 5k are not taking place this year, so can't be included.
