This Sunday sees the traditional South West Cross Country Championships take place at Aldon hill, Yeovil and there are a host of Wells City Harriers across all age groups from u11 to veterans entered. Good luck to all who run, and check the latest information on whether you have been selected for the County team. Don’t forget next Wednesday 10th January is the 172nd edition of Street 5k with accompanying junior races. This month’s blast from the past is from the 2008 edition of the SW XC Championships!

A number of the Harriers have been selected to run for the County team. The Somerset selection is reported on the Team News page of the website – check to see if your name is there.
