Barrow Runners

The 'Run'down - 14th August

3 club challenge

The trophy has returned to Barrow! Congratulation to the 47 runners who took part in the event, contributing to the result and making the evening a success. Despite a hiccup when leader Tim Hartley was sent the wrong way on the course which was based from Anstey Nomads, the overall result was unaffected though six guys now have the bragging rights after finishing ahead of him!

The club championship tables will be updated asap here /about/club-championships.aspx

Sadly, due to demand the event sold out in under 24 hours and entries remained difficult to access through the transfer process; this is something we will consider before inclusion in any future club championship.

It is for people who want to run further than a marathon, train for a race, or just to complete a set distance with no pressure whilst enjoying the countryside.
