Alan is away this week.  We hope there will be a grass session - watch this space.

Lou is away next week (29th July). Two requests for help:

1.  Could someone volunteer to lead the drills?  Lou can design the session for you and help you prepare; or you may prefer to do your own thing.  Please contact her on Thank you.

2.  Would someone be prepared to lead a grass session next week when Lou is away?  We'll try to organise someone to lay out a grass track. Again, contact Lou on lou@louwalker if you can help.

Harestock Handicap - 10th July 2014

Fun in the sun at tonight's handicap with the entire field home within 30secs in that fabled blanket finish that is a handicappers dream.  We had 4 runners making their first appearance of 2014, 4 runners under 7 mins and 5 runners with PB's.  Our winner on the night was Tom Oliver making a welcome return to the handicap and comfortably holding off the fast finishing pair of James Moore and Chris Setters.  James just pipped Chris to take 2nd place in 6'20" - the fastest time of the night.

After 7 races James Moore leads the overall series from Simon Harvey with Steve Oliver slipping away to 3rd after a slow show tonight.
