After the back-to-back outings to St Audries and Ashclyst Forest, our league season is now halfway through. The next race is back on the Quantocks on Sunday 26 January, using the open hilltop and steep coombe sides of Lydeard and Middle Hills.

League after 3 events

Handicap after 3 events

More than 80 people took advantage of pleasant autumn weather at each of our first two events, at Culm Davy and St Audries and nearly 40 travelled to Devon's offering at Ashclyst Forest.
