The junior club has broken up for Christmas and will start again on Monday 14th January. In the meantime there are a couple of fixtures that are open to junior athletes.

The first is a fun event on Boxing Day, the short and sharp Cockleroy hill race.  The race starts from near the car park at cockleroy and is to the top of the hill and back down,. a distance of about one kilometre.  It's a fun event and certificates of completion are given out to all competitors.  I'm pleased to say that I am helping out this year.  the race starts at 11:15am so be there before 11am to register and get your number.

The second event is the final East District League cross country fixture in Broxburn on Saturday 12th January.  There are categories for U11, U13 and U15 as well as senior competitors and sees the junior and senior clubs getting involved.  We had a record turnout at our last fixture and would like to see even more taking part if they can. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the last event at Livingston.

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
