At the start of both the Senior Boys’ and Senior Girls’ Runs, you will be able to hand your belongings to a member of staff who will return them to the reception desk of the Jonathan Edwards Sports Centre where they will be available for collection.

Following the run all entrants are welcome to join us for refreshments in the Club Room of the Jonathan Edwards Sports Centre and the presentation ceremony in the Sports Hall.

We hope it will be a memorable day for you all!
