Urgently needed - Eryri ladies to compete in the next borders league road race, Sunday 14th March in Wrexham. Contact Arwel Lewis 01248 671202 if you'd like a seat in the minibus. There is no charge to enter the race, just wear your Eryri vest. We are currently lying in 2nd in division 2 with a good chance of winning if we can get three female runners out to the next races, unfortunately two of our usual runners can't make it to the next race. Please support your club and help us out. There are two more races in April and we'd love to see you at them too. Thanks, Allison D.
