The club will subsidise and refund subsidy of the entry cost to those paid-up members taking part after they have entered the race. Please note that the entry fees increase at the beginning of August, making it advisable to register before Thursday 31st July.

I also intend to build on our great representation at the Victoria Park Relays last year. Notification of the date has already been circulated and I would hope we can field as many teams as last year; open, vets and who knows even a ladies team!!! Watch this space for further details.
