Transport

The Club organises a number of buses throughout the year for popular runs in the North of England and to Club activities.

The races which attract enough support to make a bus viable are typically point-to-point, cross country fixtures or races with an accompanying good lunch!

The following buses are currently planned:

  • Pier to Pier – Sun 19th May 2019 **AVAILABLE TO BOOK NOW***
    Only a handful of seats left on this bus, so if you want to be on it then act quick and book your seat
