Hampshire Cross Country – by Trevor McAlister

Bunting

On Saturday it was the fifth and final fixture of the Hampshire XC League, and the location set in the New Forest didn’t disappoint. With this fixture being closer to home, our hardy group of Ryde Harriers were afforded a later than usual start in the morning, but the crossing on the Hover soon shook […]

So it seems an appropriate time to be making clear the rules for our annual club draw for the […]
