Children’s Winter X Country

Nelson Schools Cross Country League 2021 (all grades):



Unfortunately and not unexpected due to covid-19 level 4 remaining
in place we have cancelled the second race at Rabbit Island.
Due to the uncertain future we can only wait and see if another
date can be arranged and with such large numbers it means
we will need to be in level one to run the event.
Very disappointing but it is the times we live in at the moment.
Stay safe and stay strong.
