Scott Marlin

Congratulations Scott - please come to track on Wednesday next week to be presented with your trophy

A full list of finish times will go onto the website so you can manually upload your run to Strava - because we all know, if it isn't on Strava, it didn't happen!

Congratulations to all 74 runners who took part and again a big thank you to the volunteers who made the magic happen.

If it's a PB let us know!

NAKED HANDICAP - 16th August

To confirm guys and gals next week's track session will be replaced with a naked handicap.

This means that you have to wear clothes but you are not allowed to carry any kind of watch or timing device Smiling


If you would like to take part please email your predicted time for completing the 5km handicap route at the lookout that we use for our summer handicap series to


The winner of the event will be the person who gets closest to their predicted time without the use of a timing device or watch.


Please note that anyone who I find with a non manual upload on strava will be disqualified!
