The Grand Prix series consisting of selection of cross country events, one of which is based on the very successful (but feared) multi-lap course designed initially by John Cummins. All of the events are guaranteed to be "gut-wrenchingly difficult" courses with a committee member elected to be the chief organiser. Generally the races will be handicapped in order to give all participants an equal chance, irrespective of ability and speed. All runners have the chance to set themselves targets (and create pbs), but to stop established members becoming too familiar with the courses, some new ones are being created to allow the committee to pick from a pool.
This year's events are now all completed, so if you fancy taking part in this challenging series, watch this space and wait for the announcement of next year's dates.
The winner for 2016/17
was: Paul Orton

want to avoid the possibility of running further than needed, please study the map below:
