Hill and Dale 2015 Thank You Night

Newcastle AC closed out their 2015 Hill & Dale race series with a thank you night at the Toscano PIzzeria on Saturday 12th sept. It was great to see many of the Hill & Dale volunteers present for the great food and no doubt to share their various experiences on another successful race series. There would be no race series without the volunteers (members and friends of Newcastle AC) who give up their time in all weathers over an 11 race series to take entries, stand at check points in forests and mountain tops, ensure accurate timing and placing of runners. Big thanks to all of them. Continue reading
