Last Met League cross country races of the season

The fifth and final meeting of the season will take place at Wormwood Scrubs on Saturday 7th February

Help is also needed!
Serpentine are jointly hosting this meeting with Thames Valley Harriers and we need six or more people to assist as marshals from noon to 4pm. Please contact Malcolm French if you can help. It's a great opportunity to see all the racing and then socialise in the pub afterwards if you're unable to race for some reason!
