Andy has decided to cancel tonight’s session due to the high winds & torrential rain. Enjoy your evening off!
Congratulations to the 50 finishers in this morning’s Boxing Day Handicap and a big thank-you to all who helped in challenging conditions. The winner was 5 year-old Harry Fairclough (keeping up a family tradition!). Roz Pearson (3rd) was first club ember home and the fastest times of the day were 9:16 by Alex Muir and 9:49 by Phil Marshall. Full results.
Thirty-three runners enjoyed the warm conditions and recorded some excellent times. The overall winner was 10 year-old Josh Norton followed closely by 4 year-old Harry Fairclough and new-comer to running Dorota Zawiza.
Three runners recorded times under 10 minutes on the 1.8 mile course. Fastest was James Craggs (9:26) followed by Dan Tuttle (9:40) and Ben Wickens (9:49).
Thank-you to all who helped make this another successful club event.

After 17 years of developing and managing the club website, I’ve decided that now is the time to pass it on to the next generation. The design of the site needs to be refreshed and new features introduced over time. I am pleased that Andy McKendrick has agreed to take responsibility for the future design and operation of the site. Andy & I have been working in tandem for the past month and he is now ready to assume full responsibility. Please support him, as you have me, in keeping the site relevant and current.
