For those of you attending we kindly ask you to note the following:

  • If you are able to volunteer please let Steve Ramek, Bev or myself know in advance. We are always grateful for an extra pair of hands.
  • Please arrive in good time to register as we will be leaving the club at 7:15pm prompt in order to start at 7:30pm.
  • Be mindful of the residents and keep noise to a minimum
  • Despite the lighter evenings, for your own safety please wear a BRIGHT REFLECTIVE TOP to ensure you are visible to other pavement/road users.
  • Last but not least, have fun and enjoy the evening 🙂

Finally, a reminder of two slight tweaks to the rules effective this season:
“To ascertain a member’s start time, your last four finishing times will be considered, the slowest of these being discounted and an average taken of the three remaining times;
“To avoid a tie when the competition reaches its grand conclusion in May, the winner, if points are equal, will be the runner who crosses the line first in this final race.”
