Some Important Dates

Some important dates for your diaries;

Saturday 28th November, 2015: Cross Country Race (approx. 5-6 miles) at Sefton Park start 2pm. Please see Tony Metcalfe if you are interested in running for the club.

Friday 4th December, 2015: Christmas Party and Presentation Evening 8pm. Tickets are now available only £5 each, see Michelle Williams / Cathy Rigby.

Sunday 6th December, 2015: Guys Hamlet 10 mile race (near Garstang), start 10.00am. The last championship race of the year. Hopefully a free cheese for your prize again, rather than a medal.

Sunday 20th December, 2015: Christmas Handicap(start time tbc), Clarkes Gardens. A fun 4 mile race around the outside of Clarke Gardens, time handicapped so some of the not so fast runners should beat the faster runners. Christmas Fancy dress is encouraged. Lots of prizes
