2018 Senior Club News

The Club’s very popular Pre-Christmas 4K Series of Races for 2018 got underway tonight. The Club is very grateful to Barry Horgan for sponsoring this year’s series and indeed very many of tonight participants were treated to some lovely Spot prizes which were well scattered among all the participants throughout the race, they were the Lucky ones tonight. All going well we may have more Spot prizes for next week’s race. Also, anyone that participated tonight are well on their way to receiving a special designed Umbrella for completing three out of the first four races of this year’s series. So, you all can still receive one of these special umbrellas, all you have to do is complete in the next three races to receive one, so mark next Wednesday night, 7th November into your diary, 7 pm start.

Once again we are indebted to all our Stewards for ensuring that the whole event was well managed and marshalled, thanks also to the Brothers of Charity for the use of their carpark as Race Headquarters and to the Red Cross for First Aid.
