I thought you might be interested in a friendly wee race we are organising. It’s great fun and everyone is welcome. Lots of random spot prizes to be given away! Hope to see you there.
Wednesday 2nd January 2013
Village Hall, Giffordtown
Starts at 12.00pm
Distance 4 x 1.5 mile (approx.)
Enter on the day - Adults £3 or £5 (Unattached). Entry is FREE for all kids!
Open to all ages and abilities – suitable for all the family. You can run as hard or as easy as you like. Runners to be paired according to ability with a tortoise (slower runner) and a hare (faster runner) in each team. We would prefer runners to arrange their own pairings where possible (subject to scrutiny – bandits beware!). We especially welcome male and female mixed pairs. If you don't have a partner you will be allocated one at registration.
The race consists of 4 laps of woodland trails and paths held entirely within Heatherhall Woods. Each team member will run 2 identical laps of approx 1.5 mile. Junior runners under 13 can take part as a team of four.
We will attempt to record split times but if they are important to you we suggest you record your own times.
Please try and arrive at the hall for 11.00am so that team numbers can be allocated before the race begins at 12.00pm.
