FINAL RESULTS of the Northam Burrows Races can be viewed HERE Many thanks to the many North Devon AC and Bideford AAC club members who officiated and marshalled at this event - for once the Burrows were kind to us with warm temperatures and just breeze from the south west.

West Buckland School Races: Sunday 26th November 2017 Click HERE for results. Our thanks go to Jan Witheridge and Andrew Moore and the WBS Community for hosting yet another well organised event.
Coxleigh Barton Races - Sunday 5th November 2017 Click HERE for CONFIRMED results - many thanks for the updates.
We are indebted to John and Jo, our congenial hosts at Coxleigh Barton Equestrian Centre, for permitting us to use their grounds for the fourth race of the season and for all the hard work they put into providing not just the facility but also arranging outside catering, organising safe car parking and even mowing the actual course!. Thanks also go to all those many NDAC club member volunteers and friends who gave their time to officiate, marshal the course, supervise car parking for over 300 cars and clear up after the races. Particular thanks go to Graham Berry and Chris Norman for setting the course last Friday morning. The venue provides a true cross country running test whatever the weather - we are so lucky to have such a range of differing courses which give all types of runners a fair test. We now move on to West Buckland School on Sunday 26th November - probably many athletes favorite course as it is rarely muddy and always fast.
Shebbear College Races: Sun 15th October 2017
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)

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.
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.
