We have run in the latest West Yorkshire League and are currently running the Peco XC league.  Athletes have also been representing the club in Yorkshire XC  at Light Water Valley and will shortly compete in the Northern XC  at Harewood House on 27th January 2018.  Some athletes may represent the club at the English Nationals XC in London in February.
