At first sight a Cat C event limited to 200 competitors with the inconvenience of no EOD might not have looked so attractive. However, on an excellent area like Farleton Knott not likely to be used for another 5 years and with entries at £7 for seniors I hope that the courses made it well worth the travel.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Daylight Street League

Apologies to those looking forward to the proposed upcoming Daylight Street League events but a number of factors have conspired to prevent me organising all of the three events. However, I am still hoping to put an event on in the Preston area for Wednesday 16th October. More information nearer the time. Don't forget that if you are in the Preston area there is still one last Run Challenge event next Wednesday 18th September at the Black Bull pub, Longton. Bob Nash

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) A Race2Remember

The Bolland family are organising an 8km TRA certified trail race around Nicky Nook on 29 September. Lovely route (with a sting in the tail). Walk option, fun run, junior and kiddie races. Great family day out based at Wyresdale Park Hall (Applestore CafĂ©). Terry Bolland senior has advanced Alzheimers and this event is dedicated to dementia awareness, with all proceeds going to Alzheimers Society. Margaret, Claire, Brendan, Sean, Helen, and Terry plus their families would love as many orienteers as possible to be there. If you know Terry or any of the Bollands, or you are affected yourself by dementia in some way, or you just fancy doing the best trail race ever, please get your entries in and help make this a great event. And tell your friends……..More details,  or call Claire on 01524 382976 or Sean on 07956 450276. Or check out this flier.
