2020 WRRL gets under way

Northbrook ladies – miles and smiles.

Time to think about the 2020 road race season and the Warwickshire Road Race League (WRRL) in particular. Entries for Massey Ferguson’s race which is the first race of the series are open already. The ballot for the Two Castles opens on 1st February.

Dave and Kelly MBE

Some very good news to start the year that is almost upon us. Kelly Sotherton of Birchfield Harriers and Dave Phillips of Massey Fergusson have both been awarded an MBE. Kelly’s award recognises her “services to Track and Field Athletics and the Promotion of Women’s Sport” and Dave’s recognises his considerable “Charitable Fundraising”. Well done both.
