MEDICAL 10 RACE - Sunday 5 December

The running section organises the Medical 10 which is a run for the medical
fraternity run from the Sports Centre every year. The event brings in a much
needed financial boost for the section. It is been run this Sunday and I am
looking for members to assist as marshals on the day. The race starts at
06:30 and you will be finished by 08:00. If you are able to assist please drop
me an e-mail or phone on 072 400 0046. Breakfast will be supplied


The running section will be hosting the final happy hour of the year on the 10
Dec. We intend making this a bumper event, as only the running section can
do, and urge all of you to visit the Club, enjoy a drink or two at discounted
prices, and stand a chance of winning some fantastic prizes.


The time trial starts at 17h45 from the runners tap at the entrance to the
sports centre every Thursday of the year and is open to all whether you are a
member of the running section or not.
