Important dates for your diaries!


Further to my previous message to the men's squad about the cross country league races, there are a number of other notable cross country races over the coming months that the club have supported and competed in over many years. These are all good events that we would like to continue to support with a strong Dorking presence so, if possible, please get these dates in your diaries!
