Holiday Club Runs

20 December 2011
Normally at this time of year I would preview the Stan Finlay memorial 10 miles time trial which, for many seasons, had been an annual "close season” fixture on Boxing day.
However the event has often been postponed because of poor, icy or dark and dangerous weather conditions and last year the Stan Finlay memorial rose bowl was competed for during the club’s first 10 miles time trial of the season on 20th April 2011, when Steven Workman was the winner. This will continue for the 2012 club race season.
Michelin have filled the void this year by organising two "club run” events for Tuesday 27th December and Thursday 29th December.
Both rides will assemble at the Michelin Athletic Club on the Woodside road with these 45 – 50 miles tours due to depart at 10am.
Stuart Knowles is the organiser and he tells me that changing and shower facilities are available at the club. Soup and sandwiches will also be served at the finish of the Thursday ride.
