Handicaps are taken into account and each runner will run alternate laps with their teammate until both have completed 3 laps. Please arrive a little earlier so teams can be organised.
Time is running out to nominate someone for ‘runner of the year’ and ‘junior runner of the year’, so please get your nominations in.
