Leeds Schools Cross Country

I know that a lot of V S junior members compete in this league.  The dates have just been published http://www.lsaa.org.uk/CC.htm.  Events don’t clash with any of the “Team Events” listed above so it seems that you’ll have time to get spikes washed cleaned and dried between meetings.
