Handicap Trophy Race 28th August 2017

This year the final race in the 2016 – 2017 series, for the John Hearn Memorial Trophy and Joyce Smith Memorial Rose Bowl will take place on Monday 28th August. This is because the last Inter Club race is due to take place on Wednesday 6 September, two days after the original Handicap Race day and obviously we would like as many people as possible to take part in both events.
I know that 28th August is a Bank Holiday and also in the last week of the summer holidays but it is not possible to transfer the race to 11th September as by then it will be too dark to be running on the country lanes.
The above link also gives you the start times for the race and indicates who is eligible to race for the Trophies. This does not mean that only these people can run on the night, everyone is very welcome to join in. Please note that in order to run on the night you MUST be wearing high viz and/or reflective clothing. This does not include the bright yellow, orange technical T shirts, these do not show up in poor light.
We also need to get the race underway at 7.00 pm, so please can everyone be at the Club early in order to complete registration by 6.45 and get down to the start by 7.00.
