HRC are once again entering a number of teams. Places are however limited so if you are interested (junior or senior) in taking part and running as part of a team please comment below AND get your money in an envelope labelled for the attention of Bill Banner with your name, age and your current 5k or 10k time
You will be put into teams dependent on ability and/or age category. If you have a preference for which leg you run please let us know but we can’t promise you will get it!!
It’s first come first served so your place will not be confirmed until your money is with Bill, once you pay you are committed to running and if you are no longer able to run it will be your responsibility to find someone to run in your place
This event is a really nice team day out, suitable for the whole family to come and watch and enjoy. We take along the club tent and everyone brings along a picnic and have a really nice time so if you’re new to the club it’s a brilliant event to get involved in, even if you just come and watch. I’m sure those that have taken part previously will tell you how good it is! A few pictures from last year below!
