Well done also to Jess Beresford who finished fifth on the Medium course.

This weekend sees four Bassetlaw Juniors traveling to the Lake District to compete for the East Midlands in the Junior Inter Regional Championships.

For those staying behind there is the annual Cliffhanger event, in Sheffield.

This an ultra sprint race with qualifiers and finals and takes in a labyrinth as part of the course.
