General information

All races start at 7.00 p.m.  This year there will be NO guest runners, sorry. There will be no numbers given out on the day by me so please if you are running you MUST get a number from your club at least a week before the first race as your club must send in an entry declaration. There is a limit of 500 numbers issued and no more will be available. Club contacts have been sent an allocation and once that has gone there will be no more … so be early. The numbers this year are £10 each.  Please carry out any instructions from race marshals so we can enjoy the competition without causing problems for local residents and other road users.
