A near-complete revamp of the 2015 Heanor RC Club Championship fixture list will see Lisa Palmer, Laura Beth James-Hutchinson, Stuart King and Paul Mercer face new challenges in defence of their crowns.
The Livingston Relays have been reinstated to the thirteen-fixture list and the senior men will be looking to retain the title they won for the first time last April. Out go the Midland XC Championships, Sinfin 10k, Hairy Helmet Relays and Ramathon and in come the Notts 10 Mile, Derbyshire 5,000m Championship on the track and inaugural Derby City Half Marathon.
The refreshed fixture list sees the North Midlands XC League, BDL XC and summer leagues retained whilst mainstays, the Sam North Mile and Worksop Half Marathon, have been replaced by a seaside trip in May for the Blackpool 10k and the Midland 6 & 4 Stage Road Relays in September.
Runners need to have completed seven events in order to feature in the final club championship standings.
