We should have eight teams this year with two Roadents doing the full 22 miles.
REMEMBER ENTRIES MUST BE SENT BY THE END OF THIS WEEK.
As in past years the club will be subsidising this event, the cost of a team of three is £55 the club will pay £25 towards each team which means each member will pay £10 each.
It is hoped that most members will make a night of it and camp out.
If you are taking part could you please leave a comment on here.
The race has come and gone and results will be displayed when available, this is a
thank you to all the members who participated in this years race. In particularly I would
like to thank Andy and Justin for using their cars to ferry the runners to the various start
points, in particular the early stages, thanks to Lee Sutherland for swapping his leg
to run leg 3 where I was encountering problems getting a runner to run that leg and
thanks to Jason who ran a second leg for the B team due to a runner being injured.
My last thanks is to Gwyn Lloyd for his navigational skills. I think we all agree
that it was another great day out for the club and up until stage 6 I did not mind
driving, but then the roadent spirit in you came out and most of you started
drinking and my pleasure in driving you lot around evaporated, so next
year there will be a different driver. Roll on Man v Horse.
