Manx Harriers have been very successful in this event over the years (we have attended since 1992) and we would like to see this continue with individuals and teams coming to race in 2018.
This year we are changing the plans regarding travel to the Lancashire Cross Country Championships so please read this very carefully.
The racing takes place on Saturday 6 January with the first races (usually under 11) off at 11am. The older age groups take place later in the day with the Senior Men usually last to start at 2/2.30pm.
Arrangements the same as usual –
As ever Manx Harriers will be booking a bus to go from Liverpool to Blackburn and back on the day of the race. Timings will be finalised nearer the date but the intention is to arrive at Blackburn by 10am and leave at approx. 4pm. Manx Harriers will pay for the bus.
You will be responsible for entering the race. This can be done online and also on the day. Pre race entry is cheaper than paying on the day.
Different Arrangements this year –
You are free to book your own travel to and from the event. This means you can travel the night before and come back on the Saturday evening. You could make a weekend of it and travel back Sunday. Of course you could also do what the club has done in the past and travel on Saturday morning out to the race and do the trip in a day. If booking returns on the Saturday make sure you book the later flights from Liverpool.
So get booking ASAP so you get the best deals.
Once booked let Andy Fox know, firstname.lastname@example.org or 626415/495830, the following –
That you have entered and your age group, so we can plan for teams.
Which flights you are on – Day, time, company?
Where you are staying?
Your full address and post code.
The bus will do a pick up in Liverpool Centre on Saturday morning for any staying there and also at the airport. It will then travel to Blackburn. On the return it will drop off at the Airport and then in Liverpool City Centre.
After the event and when we know how many have travelled, also the cost of the bus etc. we will then decide how much money will be reimbursed to each athlete.
