Did you enjoy the Abbey Dash?

We hope you enjoyed tonight’s Abbey Dash. A sunny evening, lots of friends old and new, and a great buffet. We are working hard to format and check the results and will post them as soon as we can. Please check back later.

And if you thought that was a good event, wait till you try the Bawtry Forest Trail Race. We have a great selection of prizes again this year, including a fabulous Suunto sports watch for the winners of the men’s and ladies’ races respectively.

Here’s a photo of a kind volunteer posing with the watches (we are not having a caption competition). To enter Bawtry Forest Trail Race, please follow the link on the top right of this page.

Most of our races are entry on the day only but the Bawtry Forest Trail Race is different – entries are online and in advance. Here is a link to the entry form on Run Britain:

We are delighted to announce that once again this year we have received fantastic sponsorship from Suunto and have two sports watches to present to the winners of the men’s and ladies’ races.

We also have an amazing goody bag lined up as well as our famous t shirts for everyone who completes the trail race. Don’t forget to enter early to be sure of getting a place – entries are limited to 300 runners.



Away we go!

A great turnout by MRC runners at a trail run organised by Danum Harriers – they must like us as this is the second time they have invited us! The run was fun and the beer and chip butties were lovely! Danum runners are invited to Maltby on Tuesday 14th May – all MRC members are welcome – meet at Maltby Catholic Club ready to run at 6.30pm.
