Regional events attract participants from around the local Region, National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away, Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships.

Series after 3


We hope you all enjoyed the twists and turns of the courses tonight in Windermere for the latest installment in the Night Urban Series ! Thankfully the rain did stop and held off for the event.

Many thanks to all the LOC helpers tonight - the stars deserving particular mention this week are Loz the planner, Nick for safety, Rach as Series Co-ordinator and the SI Team of Ali, Jerry and Roger.

Also many thanks tonight to the Brookside Inn for allowing us to use their back bar tonight, it was so good to see people socialising after their runs.
