The Midlands Cross-Country Association has been working closely with officers from Halesowen Athletic Club investigating the possibility of holding the Midland Cross-Country Relays close to their club. So far two possible courses have been identified but both had to be discounted when tenant farmers refused to allow runners to cross their land. Officers from Halesowen Athletic Club are now investigating a third site but time is getting short. If any club would be prepared to host the event on that date and can provide a 3 kilometre loop which can be used for young athletes with 2 loops for senior athletes (6 kilometre) then please contact the Chair of Cross-Country (Keith Brackstone) at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
