Further information: 
I noticed our events list is looking a bit empty so here's my offering. If you 'n' your pal prefer to combine racing with a pub crawl and a bit of rural grafting (in a daft outfit and for a good cause)……..this one's for you! • The race involves the consumption of beer at each of 5 venues on the route. • Competitors are required to run approximately 2½ miles – with a bale of straw (20Kg) being carried for 1½ miles up hill. • The race is a non-contact sport and competitors must not in any circumstances push or pull other competitors or their clothing or possessions. Any competitors who become aware of any such conduct are requested to report it immediately to a steward or race official.
