Club Championships

An update of this year’s Championship table will be added soon

The Stickler

Sadly due to the ongoing pandemic we have decided not to run the Stickler in 2020 for the general public, it is considered impossible to follow the race guidelines as issued by English Athletics given the nature of the Stickler course.

However we will be running the Stickler as a internal club championship race on probably Sunday 18th October (date to be confirmed). So all those Doddlers who never get a chance to run the Stickler as they take on race duties, this is your year for glory.
