Coming up next Saturday is the re-arranged cross country fixture at Witton Park in Blackburn. This is the penultimate event in our Mid Lancs campaign with both the Senior Ladies and Mens A Team in a good position to push for promotion. It is all the more important that the ladies get a full team across the line on Saturday to consolidate their 2nd place in their division and increase the chances of topping the table at the end of the season.
The Senior Mens A Team are just 2 points off top spot and a good performance at Blackburn should all but assure promotion to Division 1 next year. For the first time ever we have a Wigan Harriers B team scoring points in Division 4. If we can take two full teams to our remaining fixtures there is still an outside chance that we could see our B Team promoted to Division 3 next season. for that to happen we need to see the same kind of turn out that we mustered for Knowsley last week. For anyone who didn’t make it last week, now is the chance to redeem yourself Tim.
A number of our new members have expressed an interest in representing the club at cross country. There is no need to wait for an invite or selection to the team! Just let one of the coaches know you fancy running and we will sort out your paperwork and race number on the day.
Witton Park is a fine course with the famous twin climbs of the “Saucer” and the “Spoon” along with plenty of mud to keep us happy!. There is also a Café and playground on site making it an ideal event to bring along some family support provided the weather allows! See last years Witton Park Report for more info
Take a note of the start times which differ from last week with Senior Ladies running at 2pn with the Senior Men setting off at 2.30pm
