 Northern Championships 

The Northern Champs is being hosted by EBOR in Wass Forest on 22 April.  There is a supporting Urban event hosted by HALO in Thirsk on the previous day 21 April.  Both are UKOL events.  Details can be found on EBOR and HALO websites.  Entries are via Fabian4.  Both organisers need more helpers and I hope that some CLARO members will be willing to offer some help.  If you are going to either or both events and you can help, prices for seniors with a helper discount code drop from £10 to £4 (Thirsk) and £17 to £10 (Wass).  For the Northern Champs, organiser Mike Ridealgh particularly needs helpers for the second shift – run first and help later.  Ken Hutson is the Thirsk organiser.  For the helper discount code and to let organisers know of your helping preferences, please contact them directly by email – and  The 3 CLARO members who have already entered can get a refund equivalent to the discount if they contact the organisers and are willing to help.  Please volunteer if you can.
