Road Relay Championships – Sunday 25th March 2018 at Birkenhead Park Wirral

A belter of an event open to all registered Harriers. We compete against teams from all over the north and we try to enter as many teams as possible. It’s 6 legs for the ladies and 12 for the men and the distances are either 8.5 or 4.3km. It would be fantastic if we could have a big turnout for this event. Cost is £8 per runner.

Wigan Trail 10k – Sunday 13th May 10.30am

This is the club’s very own trail race which we hold every year in Amberswood Nature Reserve. Many of you have helped previously as course marshals, first aiders, car park attendants, course markers, registration desk and it’s important we have your help again please to ensure it’s another first class event. Please let us know on wiganendurance@hotmail.com if you can help with marshaling duties. Thank you!

Don’t forget you can follow us on twitter @wigan_runners or like the Endurance facebook page @wiganrunners. If neither of those float your boat then sign up to follow the website wiganharriersendurance.wordpress.com and you’ll get an email as soon as there are any updates. Three great ways to stay in touch! Often last minute details regarding training will be shared via facebook or twitter.

Please continue to send in your race times, photos or race reports so we can share your successes throughout the club. Every week Chris Green will be collating these results so it’s important you let him know!

Cheers, happy running!
