I have offered to help Nicola by coordinating the women’s teams for the British Masters XC Relays. Please contact me to let me know your availability if you are a fully paid up member of BvH and are a woman over 35 years.
We entered one team last year as we had not much time to prepare for it. This year I want you to get this into your diary early! For those women who are still thinking about the joys of XC, this is a short course (3.1k) so ideal to try it out. Although it is a British Masters event; it is very friendly and low key.
We are able to enter teams in W35, W45, W55 and W65 categories. There are 3 runners to a team. Runners are able to run in a younger category i.e. a 55 year old may run in the W35 team (but not vice versa)! It takes place at Moorways Stadium in Derby where the facilities are good.
If you want to have a chat with any of the team who ran last year, look out for Mel James, Jude Glynn and Sarah Rock. They will tell you how good it was! It would be great to get teams out in a few categories.
If you are interested, or want to know more, contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org or look out for me at the Leafy 10k!
