This is a series of races held during the year and results count towards the club championship. This year best 6 results to count and all those competing in 5 or more events qualify for a commemorative T shirt. Three separate trophies, Men’s, Women’s and a combined calculated on a handicap basis (Bob Connor Trophy). We encourage all club runners to support these runs wherever possible. The Committee decide which races will be in the series at the beginning of our season and these should only change if the chosen race is withdrawn at short notice.
Please note that it is your own responsibility to ensure that you enter races. Especially, please note that some races have limits on numbers or cut off dates so try to enter as early as possible. If the facility is available and you have to enter on the day, get to the venue early.
