The Woodford Green Cup (holder, Ryan Lawrence) and The John Norton Trophy (holder, Clare Mallender) are up for grabs, together with medals for the first three men and women over the season. The competitions work like this: the first Courier home, men and women, in each of the five League cross country fixtures collects 20 points, with 19 for second and so on. The points accumulated over the season make your final score. To be in with a chance, it’s usually as well to do all five lovely races! Good luck everyone and let’s get the season underway in style at Fforest Fields!
A special mention to all our volunteers and helpers who made the race possible.
We really would appreciate your feedback on the evening from registration through to finishing so please look our for a survey monkey questionnaire in your email inbox over the next few days, or drop us a message at Herefordcouriersrunningclub@hotmail.com or via our facebook page.
Keep an eye out for the return of the the Hereford Couriers 5k Series in Spring 2020!

A group of our club members last weekend swapped their trainers for the classroom and headed to Stourport to complete the Leader in Running Fitness course (LiRF)
The LiRF course is designed to prepare leaders to provide a safe and enjoyable running experience for young people over 12 years of age and adults of any ability, size or shape.
Congratulations to Bronwen, Jon, Ryan, Sarah & Kelly who completed the intensive 8 hour course, they learnt plenty and are looking forward to putting it into practice over the coming weeks on our Social & Clubruns.

Not only were there some fine performances across the Summer League this year, but also an incredibly close finish in the David Preece competition and a terrific turnout from Couriers over the four tough courses – 39 athletes in red, 23 men and 16 women, ran one or more races. As a team we finished 5th in a true and tough test of our mettle in local competition. It’s something to build on. Well done indeed to everyone who gave it a go. Thanks of course also to incomparable League supremo, Mike Blenkinsop, with invaluable help from our own Nikki Tyler. Without their efforts and those of all the club members who organised such wonderful courses, we wouldn’t get the chance to tear through the beautiful countryside so purposefully in our shorts. Here are the final standings in the Cups, 20 points for first Courier home in each race down to 1 for 20th.
At the halfway stage, leading standings are as follows. I plan to present cups and medals at Shobdon before the main presentation. Would the current holders (Matt and Clare) please bring cups – engraved if possible – to Shobdon. Thanks.
