Alwinton Three Tops and Kidlandlee Short Course, June 16th
From Ian Holland: “a plea for some fell runners to enter the Kidlandlee 10km short course held on the same day as the Alwinton Three Tops Fell Race. At present pre-entries for the Three Tops Fell Race are quite encouraging but we only have one entry for the Kidlandlee Short course. This person will be the winner and first V70. The course is well marked and suitable for inexperienced fell runners. Further details can be found online at SiEntries.“
