Cop Hill/YVAA Fell Race

On the 6th November the Cop Hill FR took place from Meltham Community Sports Centre, hosted by Meltham AC. If you haven’t done this race then you should really have ago. It is on your doorstep, only £5 to enter, two laps of a hilly course but nothing worse than we do on a summer run from the club and now just over 6 miles long. There is no fell or moorland it is rather a mixture of fields, tracks and tarmac so put it in your diaries for next year.

Another excellent turnout, especially since the Mansfield CC Relays were the day before. We had 17 Harriers, 16 of whom were vets taking part.
