Aire Club League 2019/2020

Lister Park Launches League

Tue 13 Aug

The park sprint at Lister Park next Tuesday is the first counting event in the 2019/2020 Aire Club League. This year the format of the league has been altered slightly to include Urban and Park Sprint events as well as the normal Middle and Standard distance terrain events. Thirteen Regional events between now and next May have been chosen for the League hosted by ourselves or near neighbours CLARO and EPOC. The best 5 scores count.

To help you follow the League more easily we have included a new " Leagues " tab in the homepage banner.

Lister Park being short courses and parkland provides a great opportunity to post a good early score.
