BORDERS LEAGUE 2019/20 PREMATURE END
Due to the coronavirus epidemic: Following extensive discussion and considering a number of possible alternatives, none of which would appear to be satisfactory, the Borders League Committee have decided that the 2019-20 Borders League season is over and that the final results will be the standings after Race 5. The final two races of the season due to be staged by Ellesmere Port and Helsby, have been cancelled.
There will be a presentation of awards. When, where and the format of it is yet to be decided.
The AGM is scheduled for early July. We have no plans for it at present, that will depend entirely on the situation nearer the time.
What turned out to be the final race of the Borders Road Running League season at Wrexham on Sunday 15th March, 10 Eryri Harriers were amongst the 267 finishers in the two lap 5.9 mile event around the “Scenic” Wrexham Industrial estate.
