This month is of course dominated by the JK. And since I’ll be travelling mostly on my own I’ll be able to do almost everything: sprint; training event; the two individual cross-country races; trail-O; relay; and AGM. Well, I can do the British AGM but not the English AGM, which for non-ease of access is being held in a secure armed-forces location! Newcastle on Friday will be my first proper sprint event, and there’s an excellent opportunity for a practice run at LEI’s evening race on Tuesday…
