Summer Road League 2016

This year’s eagerly anticipated Summer League commences on Tuesday, 19th April at New Ellerby (Railway Inn) for a 5 mile event starting at 1900hrs (or 7pm if you prefer!).

As usual, events are then fortnightly with a slightly later start time of 1915hrs, in the following sequence:

Sproatley 6 mile              3rd May

East Park 4 mile             17th May

Leven 10k                        31st May

Sproatley 7 mile             14th June

Coniston 10k                  28th June

Skirlaugh 8 mile            12th July

Hedon 4 mile                 26th July, with prize presentation in the Haven Arms afterwards.

The now expected Children’s Fun Run will once again take place at 1830hrs immediately before the East Park four miler.  Entry is just £2.

The race dates have been uploaded into the Events Calendar.
