IMPORTANT: Volunteering at the Priory Relays in Priory Park on Saturday 2nd November *** PLEASE HELP!***

The race starts at 1.30pm so assistance will be needed for the afternoon. We will of course need help with setup/break down so there's a role for all those who are planning on running too.

If you are able to assist, please email  ASAP and a note will be made of your availability. We will put names against roles nearer the day.

Although the club is subsidising the cost of hiring the track at K2, there will be a charge for all attendees, to recover some of the cost. This charge will be NO MORE than £5 each (if there are 12 or less attendees), but will reduce from that if more people are there.
