Borders League Tattenhall 04-03-18 CANCELLED

The Borders league #5 Tattenhall race scheduled for this Sunday 4th March has been cancelled due to the icy / snowy conditions.

Although disappointing it is a safety first decision and therefore we support that decision 100% (we don’t need any silly injuries caused by slippery conditions).

Essar WCAC Schools Cross-country Series 03-03-18 – STILL ON

The Essar West Cheshire AC Schools Cross Country Races will go ahead at EPSV this Saturday March 3rd (10am start).
