  1. Heptonstall Festival- great to see all the Tod Harriers on Saturday. CVFR had the race in their champs (which means it won't be in 2013) Would be fantastic if the Festival might be in the Tod Grand Prix next year at least 6 of the organisers are Tod Harriers; Good pictures of all the toddies on Woodentops gallery - Steve
