Start Fitness North Eastern Harrier League 2019-20 Season

Good Morning cross country runners & team managers,

Following last night's NEHL AGM I'd like to thank Start Fitness for their continued support, and I'm  happy to confirm dates for the upcoming 2019-20 harrier league season.

28/09/19 - Wrekenton.  Hosted by Saltwell Harriers
06/10/19 - Druridge Bay. Hosted by Blyth RC (this is a Sunday fixture)
26/10/19 - Venue to be confirmed*
23/11/19 - Aykley Heads.  Hosted by Derwentside / Durham City / Elvet Striders
04/01/20 - Temple Park (Sherman Cup & Davison Shield).  Hosted by South Shields
08/02/20 - Thornley Hall Farm.  Hosted by Blackhill Bounders
29/02/20 - Alnwick Castle.  Hosted by Alnwick Harriers

*There are several options in the pipeline for the late October venue. John Stephens has been working with the landowners to try and get this sorted.

At the moment the possible options are:

Lambton Estate (near Washington/Chester-le-Street)
Allendale Estates
Hexham Racecourse

Derwent Reservoir was also an option, but there was not enough space to get the course in without a long road section, which made it more of a trail race than xc.

If all else fails we will have Thornley Hall Farm as a second fixture in the season.

Usual NEHL rules apply

Fees for the upcoming season

The committee opted to freeze fees so they are the same as last season.

This is a club competition, so you must be a member of a club to take part. This includes guests from other areas. Affiliated clubs pay £50 for the season plus £3/runner. Guest runner numbers cost £5. You keep your number for the whole season, so your £3/£5 covers all 7 fixtures.

If you lose your number it's £5 for a replacement (regardless of whether you're local or a guest)

Entries will open in September, club managers will receive their new login details shortly before the entries open.

Look forward to seeing you all in September!
