Cross is Back – Samford in January

So it’s right in the middle of Cross Season (for the northern hemisphere anyway) and while it’s so hot downunder, we will be racing in the late afternoon to keep it cooler. We will largely be guided by light available on the actual day with start times and race lengths subject to minor adjustment to suit.
