Torness Christmas Handicap Race – 18th December 2009

Invitations to the Torness Christmas handicap, as detailed below, are open to all Dunbar runners. If you are interested please email your name and expected result time to [email protected] by Fri 11th December. It’s a handicap race so authentication of any estimated times submitted may be requested. If it’s any help, Ian Rowland ran the same course last year in 23:31 (in driving rain and a strong headwind). I’m afraid we can’t offer access to the plant so post race showers etc will not be available. The North Sea may be used as a suitable alternative, if you’re hardy and mildly unhinged!

Kind Regards
