As the 2013 Hill and Dale series draws nearer to its final fling, 164 runners assembled last Thursday evening to take up the challenge of race number 10 over Hen and Cock. This course is a long established fixture, although it has been absent from the calendar for a few years, which meant that for some this was their first time over the course, while for others it saw the welcome return of an old favourite.
Prize giving night will take place in O’Hares, Newcastle on Friday 28th June.
