Yorkshire XC Championships

Lightwater Valley was the venue for the Yorkshire Cross Country Championship and the first Harriers club run of the year.

Nik Vogan was first lady home in 72nd closely followed by Caroline Warrington in 75th. Rounding off the ladies team, who were 20th overall, was Cassie Holmes in 91st and Bryony … [Read more...]

Great to see a few new faces flying the flag with Neil … [Read more...]

Guisborough Woods

Our men claimed the team … [Read more...]
