The Run by EVRC 2017… and run!!! (Notts AAA Summer League R5 the final at Teversal)
The Run by EVRC had another successful year. We sold out, the sun made a little appearance and nobody died, though Gary did have to go find a nice dark safe place afterwards to de-stress. As ever race organiser Brian did a brilliant job in making the race happen and herding the rest of us into the right places. Thank you to everybody that helped on the night; tail runners, marshals, sorting entries , taking the results, compiling the results (Shirley completed them in record time this year) , race photographers, lead and sweeper cyclists and thank-you to all the runners that came along and made it a success. We’ll be back next year though I’ll be taking more beer to my marshal point. The results are here http://www.evrc.co.uk/content/run-evrc-2017 and the photos will be popping up on facebook.
