The 2015 series is here!


The 2015 series is presented by the following clubs/teams: Royal Leamington Spa CC, Sherwood Pines CCMatlock CC, Bolsover & District CC, Torq Performance, Bewdley Outdoors and Bridgnorth CC. It is the time and effort they put in that enables the series to take place.

  • 2 chances to be social and race with your team-mates in a team relay!
  • Race day streamlined into 3 races: 10.30, 13.00 and 14.30
  • Entry fees held at 2014 prices, with Fun and Grand Vet prices reduced
  • Masters has gone…
  • Best 4 results from 7 count towards the series standings
  • Sorry, no Marathon this year. Maybe 2016..?
