A huge thank you to Fiona Goode and her Shebbear Team for hosting this meeting - record numbers competing too, so this is a very popular venue! Sincere thanks also go to Steve Choules and Chris Norman who stepped in to take responsibility for the Race HQ and a host of other jobs behind the scenes - these races don't 'just happen' so it is good to know we have experienced folk to ensure everything runs smoothly. Apologies for there being no times but our unavoidable lack of administration staff caused this - hopefully back to normal in November. MORE PHOTOS ON THE PHOTO GALLERY PAGE (Courtesy of John Graver)
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE RESULTS ARE PROVISIONAL: Please carefully check that we have placed you correctly and report any errors by 9pm on Wednesday 18th October - many thanks

Firstly, our sincerely thanks go to Simon and Phil and their Kingsley team of helpers - teaching staff, pupil marshals, parents and old boys - you all did a great job of preparing the course, providing catering and marshalling the runners. A big thank you also also goes to the NDAC team at Race HQ and officiating - well done Tracey Choules, Jo Leworthy, Lynsey Ayres, Elizabeth Williams, Steve Choules, Chris Norman and Graham Berry. Thanks again to athletes, team managers and parents for your patience when collecting numbers - we will review procedures in an attempt to streamline things before next year's opening event.
ON-LINE ENTRIES ARE NOW OPEN for the next meeting at Coxleigh Barton Equestrian Centre, Shirwell on Sunday 5th November at 10am
Race 6: Sunday 4th February - West Buckland School (Finals Day 10am and Presentations from 11:20am)
WELL DONE TO EVERYONE WHO TOOK PART IN THE 2016-17 LEAGUE - whether as an athlete, parent, marshal, refreshments provider or official - the league simply cannot take place without your efficient support. Once again we express our special thanks to Jan Witheridge and her West Buckland School team of helpers for hosting such a successful finals day. Thanks also go to Phillip Stapleton (WBS Head Master) for presenting the awards. I have had rave reports about the West Buckland Parents Association refreshments - thank you for giving up your morning to keep everyone fed and watered - an invaluable and much appreciated service! As league administrator it would be impossible to cover all the jobs without the expert help of Graham Berry, Chris Norman, Sally Pope, Steve Choules and Elizabeth Williams. We were also able to call on the very experienced support of Sue Gear and Ian Page at the finals today. An excellent job by everyone.
