Apologies slight delay in sending this out
The final round of the Mota-vation season took place last Thursday. Well done to all Alchester members who took part in the series, and thank you very much to all who marshalled. It was great to see so many Alchester runners there representing the club
If you took part but weren’t at Stratfield Brake on Thursday then Alan has a commemorative coaster for you. See him at club on a Tuesday or Thursday, or contact via alanb.alchester@gmail.com
Club Champs & Grand Prix Series
Races come thick & fast between now & the end of November.
In the Oxfordshire Grand Prix series our ladies currently lie in top spot with Cotswold 10, Woodstock 12, Hanney 5 & Eynsham 10k still to come. If we can get ladies entered we stand a real chance of holding on to top spot.
