Round 5 - Ulster XC series - Craigavon Watersports Centre

Event organisers from club Apollo have had their work cut out for them as the venue has seen some developments which have lead to sections of their regular course being made out-of-bounds. The new course will have a mixture of trail centre, grass, hills, tarmac and forest floor. Races for all age categories. Pre-registration closes on Friday 4 September at 8 pm. See www.ulsterxc.com for more details.
