November 23rd :: Final posting pre-race tomorrow and just a quick reminder to anyone who is planning to enter on the day tomorrow. Race results will be e-mailed out to every participant on Sunday/Monday.

November 23rd :: Presentation of prizes will take place at the registration area as soon as the last finisher has crossed the line. If you think you have won a trophy or one of 12 bottles of wine for category winners PLEASE STICK AROUND FOR THE PRESENTATION. Runners still finishing would no doubt welcome your support in the final few yards, and it is always disappointing when prize winners can't wait half an hour to collect their prizes in front of an appreciative crowd. The last finisher in both 2017 and 2018 crossed the line inside 90 minutes, so grab a coffee, have a warm down and stay with us please.

2018 RACE

November 21st :: URGENT :: As 30 runners are aware, a large number of late pre-entries plus a larger than usual on the day entry resulted in us being short of medals for this year's race. Five runners received their medals after the presentation of prizes, and one runner advised that he didn't need a medal anyway.  23 pre-entered runners didn't show up on the day - the maths indicate therefore that we now have ONE MEDAL SHORT to send them out to those who didn't receive one on race day.  As it is not possible to order ONE engraved medal on its own, we are hoping that someone amongst the 24 finishers really doesn't want a medal and would be quite happy to forego their due reward on this occasion. If everyone wants one (and so you should) we may have to place a minimum order and post them out to you all. Contact us on if you are our saviour.   Thanks.
