More Sprinting Fun This Weekend

SATURDAY NOVEMBER 9, SPRINT INTO SPRING, CORNISH COLLEGE

After a break for Cup Weekend, your sprinting legs should be nice and fresh so you’ll be ready to fight for jersey points at SIS 5: Cornish College this Saturday!

Cornish is a real fun campus and has all sorts of quirky things – including livestock, bird hides, statues, lakes with islands in the middle and impressive art works. There has also been a fair bit of building activity since the last event there so there are plenty of new challenges in store for you. The course planners are NE members Victoria Greenhan and Greg Palmer. Times are registration opens at 1pm, and the starts are between 1.30pm and 2.45pm. More details on Sprint into Spring, including current jersey points, are available on the series homepage.
