Mick Lucking (NOC team manager) has been in touch.
This year our Compass Sport Trophy heat is on 15th March at Fixby and Bradley near Huddersfield. We are racing against EPOC, CLARO, HALO, LOG, NATO, NN, SELOC and PFO. The top two teams will go through to the final.
We are going to take a coach to the event and NOC is going to pay for this and the entry fee to the event. It is intended to have coach pick-up points at Nottingham and Mansfield.
Last year we were only 10 points behind EPOC so we stand a chance of getting through to the final at Sutton Park near Birmingham. Every NOC member who completes their course at the event will have a positive effect on the team result because they will be depriving runners from other clubs of valuable points even if not directly counting for NOC. Consequently, this request is addressed to all members of the club.
All NOC entries for the Compass Sport Trophy heat have to come through me so it would be good if you could let me know if you can run as soon as possible, and not later than 17th February. Attached is an entry request form
for this event and also for the relay events at the British and the JK which are shortly after the Compass Sport Cup heat. Note that I will need details of entries for the British relays by 17th February as well.
If you have any questions, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
