The President implores you to support the Dick Maxwell and Xmas Handicap on December 7, 2019

Would you believe it? Singing the imploring Benjamin Britten arrangement of the folk song ‘Heel and Toe’ at the weekend. Very high-brow!


As ever we’re hoping for a great turnout at our annual Xmas race at Simister on December 7th, 1.30 p.m. start as usual. Please note the following.

After intense lobbying of the Chair, together with flooding caused by the climate crisis, we will not be using the Nightmare course. Sighs of relief all round!

As is tradition Pat Evans will be providing the post-race ‘pie ‘n’ peas’. To help the arrangements please let us know as soon as possible whether you will be with us or not – to Dave/Pat at or Tony at This is all the more necessary as Dave and Pat are away from home in the week preceding the race.

Continuing the traditional theme everyone is asked to bring along a present costing no more than £5 to go into Santa’s Sack.

As the year draws to a close it’s a good time to remind all members that the annual subscription is due.

Having done my imploring I have to confess that I can’t make it, but I’ll be with you in spirit on Crete. I promise to do a 10k that very afternoon followed by a cup of tea and a mince pie. Photographic evidence will be provided.

Yours truly in more familiar guise at the AGM 5k

Thanks to Derek Biddle of the White Mountains Cycling Group [Crete] and our very own Greg Smith for the photos.
