RACE FINISHES: At the start position in Dale Street.

The roads around the start/finish position will be closed to traffic except for emergency access.

Sign-on and number collection will be from 6 pm - 6.45 pm at St Paul's Hall.

We are using chip numbers this year and electronic timing therefore you must wear your number and please do not cover it or fold it in any way and you must cross the timing mat in order for your time to be registered.


The start and finish is in Dale Street shortly after the Old Swimming Pool. Please keep your number as you will need this for each race. Please remember to fill your name, emergency contact, doctor's details, medical info on the back.










There will be a briefing just before the start of the races in St Paul's Hall, this is for your safety so please listen carefully. Marshals’ instructions must be followed.


To qualify for the league, entrants must complete 4 of the 6 races and to qualify for a T-Shirt entrants must complete or marshal all 6 races.

The races are marshalled by the Firemen and volunteers, so if you would like to get involved please let us know, you would be most welcome. We really hope you will enjoy the series and the lovely cup of tea or coffee back at St Paul's Hall afterwards.

At the end of the series on the last race night there is a friendly get together for the prize presentation and a chance to chat and relax with a buffet provided.

This is a points based league with best 4 races out of 6.

There will also be a sealed handicap system with prizes for the top 3 male and female athletes in the 1 and 3 lap races.
