Runs and races with Beeston AC



Double Gravs Handicap: The first handicap race of the year is coming up! The 2019 Double Gravs race takes place on Wednesday 19th June. The distance is 5.5 miles and there is further information at . The race will start from Trent Vale Sports Grounds, Trent Vale Road, NG9 1DE with the first runner schedules to start at 6.30 pm. Venue for drinks after hopefully Marina, TBC. The handicapper (me on this occasion 😀) will estimate how long a runner will take to complete the course and runners will be set off in reverse order, the theory being that everyone completes at the same time! If you want to have a go, please post on the Facebook post (quite a few already have!), message me or reply to this email. Closing date for entries: Midnight 17 June. Entries open to first and second claim members only.


Many thanks to people who have already offered to marshal – please turn up for 6 pm.
