Runs and races with Beeston AC



Message from Simon Elliott: Bramcote Park 5k & 2k runs – marshals required!


Beeston AC are helping LLeisure by doing the on the night organisation of this year’s races on Wednesday May 1st. The 2k starts at 6.30 and the 5k 7ish.


We will need plenty (25) marshals for the 5k as it is a single lap course. You should be finished by around 8pm. I daresay we will be going to a pub afterwards!


If you are able to help, please contact me on .


If there are a few (6 ) people who could help set the course up that would be great, any time after 4.30 please.


Many thanks, Simon
