The club thrives on minimal organisation and if you have a slightly anarchic sense of humour and an appetite to compete in unusual events, you will feel at home with people of a similar disposition.

The race is full, and we are no longer taking entries to place on the waiting list. We are accepting cancellations until the end of today (Monday 23rd), which will trigger a refund, after that no more changes will be allowed.
