Lasswade 10 mile Road Race

With the new year out of the way and the 2016 health regime picking up pace, I thought I would send a reminder round Club Secretarys reminding them of Lasswade AC's  10 Mile Road Race on 6 March 2016.

Numbers are filling quite well with more than half the places taken already.

With only a matter of weeks to go I would ask that you consider pushing this email out to adult members for what is sure to be a testing run over a hilly course.

They can still sign up via Entrycentral at

Your help in this matter is appreciated and I look forward to seeing many of your club vests on the day

Best regards
