Thanks for helping this to be another great series. And thak-you to all the volunteers and helpers who we rely on to get this done each year.


There will be 8 races, starting on Thursday 1st June 2017, and from then on weekly each Thursday for 8 weeks in total. There will be a break in the sequence after Races 1 & 7. The break on the 8th of June is to allow for voting in the General Election.

The Venues and times of the Senior Races are shown below.

Sign up on the night for one race or the full series.

Important. Please do not fill n more than one entry form per series. It will lead to you not qualifying for the T-shirts, as you will appear as two (or more) runners with the same name. You do still have to come to the sign on desk to let us know that you are running.

It is important to bring your race number to each race, or we will not be able to tally ll your races for the series prizes.

You must run in the appropriate race for your age. You will be automatically disqualified if you run in the wrong race.
