The Annual Downs Fitness Christmas Handicap, which was postponed last year in deference to Jon and Charlie’s nuptuals, is being reinstated this coming Sunday, 19th December. Now in its 28th year, the distance on the Downs is approx 3M and start time is 11am. Everyone is welcome, and the tradition is that everyone brings a small prize – anything from a mars bar to a 3D TV!. All Mike Down needs to know is your estimated current 5K road time. Entry of course is free.
The Hurfords have again generously agreed to supply a social base at their home for refreshments and the prize presentations afterwards, while I need some volunteers to help mark the course, which begins at the far end of the football pitch at the top of the Ladies Mile. If you can help please let Mike Down know and meet at the top end of the Ladies Mile at 9.45.
