    Leader: Andy Gadsby
    This is an annual event, instead of a club social run. Course - to be confirmed. As in previous years we will ask you to predict your time and the winner will be the one nearest to their predicted time - No timing devices or pacing devices are allowed. Please wear reflective bright clothing and observe your own safety at junctions.
    The winner will be presented with the trophy at the awards night and get to keep it for a year. Just turn up on the night at 6.30pm to give enough time for you to submit your predicted time and receive a pre-race brief.

    The 10km course is through the fields of the Anker Valley. It consists of tracks, concrete paths, grass, fields and a short section of tarmac. Stiles, gates and bridges to climb over add to the experience. The course is relatively flat and normal running shoes should suffice. The course is traffic-free throughout.
