I'd be ok if it was only water! Just heard from the League Secretary. N. Derbyshire RC intend to use the same route as previous years, with a small amount of tinkering no doubt, but are worried that the weather may make it unrunnable. Therefore, they have a reserve route lined up which is not suitable for spikes.

The forecast is reasonable, but make sure that you have suitable footwear for a trail course. I would say that fell shoes will be fine either way, but some prefer wearing spikes if possible.

I'll up-date this thread if/when I hear more.

For anyone meeting at West Park. Plan on 9am.

Just to remind everyone the winter league has just 4 races left, 3 XC including this one and the Weston 5 mile race!

Bit more mud and I am sure there will be a lot this Sunday!!
