Winners of the Jeff Wood award

Many thanks to Mick McGeoch at Les Croups for trawling the archives and coming up with the following listing of all the previous Jeff Wood stages.

This award is given to remind us of one Les Croup's most memorable characters, Jeff Wood (or 'Woody') who collapsed and died within yards of the Stage 1 Finish in 1998 - a terrible, tragic, day. 

The Jeff Wood Award is given to the first Vet aged over 50 to complete the designated stage for the year in question, the latter always being a non-mountain stage (as Jeff hated hills).

Club Safety Guidelines

The following advice is intended to keep our runners SAFE at all times!
It is also essential that, whilst out running as a club, we are seen to be polite, responsible, set a good example & not put others at risk.
AT ALL TIMES BE SAFE BE SEEN! You can never be too visible! During the day, always wear bright or light-coloured clothing - fluorescent is good.
At night we would strongly recommend that people ALWAYS wear light-coloured clothing plus a REFLECTIVE (not just fluorescent) bib or sash.
Clip on flashers are a great way to be seen. NEVER ASSUME YOU'VE BEEN SEEN. Always be cautious with traffic.
We would like to remind people that they are responsible for their own safety and that they run at their own risk.
