The club has affiliated to the South East Lancs Cross Country League for the first time in many years. The SELCC is a four-fixture series, though their first round clashes with BUH&AC’s hosting of the RRXC, so will not be applicable.
This provides additional opportunities for XC racing in the season, for all athletes aged above 8, particularly before the county schools and Northern XC Champs. Individuals and teams can now be counters for prizes, rather than ‘invited guests’.
Match 1 – n/a – RRXC @ Bolton
Match 2 – Saturday, 16 December 2017 @ Oldham (Tandle Hill – OL2 5UX)
Match 3 – Saturday, 20 January 2018 @ Leigh (Sports Village – WN7 4YJ)
Match 4 – Saturday, 18 February 2018 @ Chorley (Astley Park – PR7 1XA)

Entry is a bargain £5 (same as RRXC) for the whole series (effectively three races), but you MUST pre-register via Paul Philbin (BUH&AC Team Manager). Thereafter it is £6 to race on the day. He simply needs your:
-Date of Birth
Your £5 entry is required by the deadline of Tuesday, 31st October. You can register your interest with him by email (see below) or at the XC noticeboard in the foyer at the track, besides the RRXC one. (Entries are available online but ONLY for/by team managers – DO NOT enter online individually as you will not count for BUH&AC).
Arrangements to collect race bibs from Paul will subsequently made, though you must keep them safe after each race (as per the RRXC) as a charge for replacement numbers will apply.
General rules are likely to be the very similar as RRXC. If you think you will be in the mix for the prizes, then make sure you take the time to seek out and acquaint yourself with them as it is always disappointing when an athlete believes they have won a prize, but the rules say otherwise.
For more information (or to register your interest), contact Paul via SELCC@boltonunitedharriers.co.uk.
