GTC HAPPY WANDERERS NIGHT RUN
We will be continuing with the GTC runs this year, first one is on the 13th of February! See you there for some awesome trail running fun for everyone!
Here are a few upcoming races for you to be aware of. Please get hold of Kent on 0846023172 should you be able to volunteer for gazebo duty. This year we will endeavour to have the Gazebo and some yummy food at many more races but having said that, we need a lot more help from the club. The same people have been doing Gazebo Duty over the years and we need some fresh faces! It is not a tough job and often can be tag teamed between a few people. So please let us know where and when you can help out.
