So the first couple of regional races have taken place and both have been a very good success. On the 21st April it was the first summer league at Welwyn and with 231 racers registered it was the highest number we have had for a race in a long time, amazing really to think how well the races have been supported at the start of the season. The schools race had 286 registered racers and we still turned away at least another 30 on top of that! Both days at Welwyn we had excellent weather which certainly helped make for an excellent time.
