Wickstead Wander 8 - provisional results....

Thank you to everyone involved in making the eighth edition of the Wickstead Wander another successful event. Out on the course we had witches from Wicked, a Christmas Tree, a Stormtrooper, a chicken and a host of other fancy dress participants - this is what makes the race so memorable.

Provisional results are now available - should you have a query with the results please email highworthrunningclub@gmail.com

The cross-country race is held in conjunction with Wickstead Equestrian Centre, which enables the runners to tackle a number of horse jumps whilst out on the course, with HRC donating all proceeds from the race to the R.D.A.
