Nigel Barge 10k Memorial Road Race

Dear all,

I would be very grateful if you could advertise the Nigel Barge 10k Memorial Road Race to the members of your club.

This is one of the oldest annually run races in the UK, having been run every year since 1943. It was organised by Kenneth Barge, a former member of the Maryhill Harriers committee, in memory of his son, Nigel, who died at Dunkirk. Nigel was an outstanding officer who had trained as a Royal Engineer, before helping to prepare and map defenses at Dunkirk. He was also a trained pilot and a keen athlete. This race is run in association with Scottish Athletics.

The race will take place at 2pm on the 3rd January 2009 with registration, parking, changing and refreshments at Garscube Sports Complex, Maryhill Road, Glasgow.

Please note the NEW VENUE - in the past the race has started from the Garscube estate, but changing has been elsewhere - this year it will all be in the one place!

Entry information and any further details can be found online at 
Please do not hesitate to contact me for any further information.

Thank you for your time and help,

Stephen Jones
