personal commentary too. Please come along after our club training,
8:30pm in the clubhouse lounge. Chip butty supper to sustain us
For our Winter series of talks we hope to have a March one too on CPR
and using de-fibrillators (the club has one, and there are more and more
around these days); a very useful thing for us to all know about. Date

Thanks and see you training & “talking” soon
Sunday 11/02/18 – Northern Masters Athletic Club Cross Country Champs
Well done to Colin Bishop for another fantastic result in a Helsby vest – and thanks for sending in the write-up Col. Results and a good picture from the day are in the link below Bish’s report:
“Sunday saw all wintery weather conditions snow, hail, sleet rain and wind so it only seemed sensible to head off for XC. So off I went to Asthon U Lyne for 10k course which had just had a 5k lady”s race completed on It, so to be expected plenty of puddles and leg sapping mud.
Happy to say I stayed upright despite my best impressions of Bambi on mud 😲
Pleased with 3rd position overall with 2nd in age category.
Sunday 11/02/18 – Liverpool & District XC Champs
