Monkhall Cross Country 11th January - Details and Directions

Wye Valley Runners are pleased to be hosting the 4th race in the Herefordshire XC Winter League on Sunday 11th January 2015.
This course is largely on private land. It is really important that runners do not practice or do recce runs . The land is also an active game shoot - so please steer well clear apart from race day.
This years course is a new route - around 6.1 miles and quite challenging - so feel free to load up on mince pies at Christmas as this race will work them off for you!
Race starts 11 am prompt. Parking is at a premium so please share lifts where possible. Please also note that the approach is through narrow lanes with dog walkers and farm vehicles a plenty - please drive with care and respect to our hosts.
