—West Yorkshire Cross Country League – Race 2 Nunroyd Park , Guiseley.
It’s looking like we could be heading for a great Winter of Cross Country racing , especially for our Ladies who gave notice of their intent and potential , taking the honours in the Ladies Team Competition ( first 4 to count ) . After taking fourth place in the first race this is a massive improvement and with two races still remaining a concerted effort could see medals being won at the end of the season.
