Torchlit 5K returns!
Christmas comes just once a year but fortunately for those absent in November the Torchlit 5k returns on Wednesday December 19th. After a bumper turnout of 44 runners for the November event on a clear still evening, an impressive 50 turnout is the hope particularly if the “promised” elite members make the trip and put pressure on Ben Johnson’s night-time course record of 17.48. In the sad absence of the traditional Christmas handicap, this event sees a final chance for a festive get together for members with the usual array of prizes. Despite the odd faller and wrong turn here and there, the Torchlit 5k has proved a great fun detour from the normal tradition despite some harsh weather conditions. Anybody able to marshall would be greatly appreciated. So don’t miss it! 7pm Wednesday 19th December, usual location.
