Derby Runner Cross Country League
Winter is on the way...time to jet wash those trail shoes Cross Country is back on the 22nd October at Bagworth Heath. Parking is very tight so car sharing essential. We will be meeting at the Elms at 9:20, to take as few cars as possible. Register and pay on the day (costs vary £3 to £5). All you need is a club top, Studded fell shoes or cross country spikes. Trail shoes/studded road shoes may fine depending upon conditions and the course. Remember to bring some cash, an old towel and change of clothes, and a bottle of water (no water is provided)
