Grand Prix Lockdown 3 Week 3

As we start another lockdown (Tier 5) we thought a new Grand Prix series would help to motivate you.

This is open to all members and you are free to take part in as many as you want (beware it is addictive once you start).

Eight are free and require no registration (**N/R), the other four events do have online registration and fees.

As you can see from the table some are part of the Stafford Harriers Challenge 2021 (this year the Challenge is free) and others are part of the NSRRA (a £5 fee – plus race fees).
