Hi people, a friend mentioned this forum to me and said was some posts on the inside park races, I remember doing all these as a youth/junior. Have dug out some results if anyone is interested to see if you can spot your names!. There is a new race series running there now over the winter organised by local shop http://offcamber.co.uk if you want to relive the experience!

Awesome stuff Kim,

Thanks for that, some famous/infamous names there, I missed out at Blandford after 92 as I went to Uni up in London and did cross for a while instead.

Welcome to the forum :)
