The event will be chip timed.  All competitors will receive a gingerbread medal and mince pie on completion. Prizes will be given for the team first past the post, the team with the closest predicted time and the individual with the closest predicted time.  

We look forward to seeing you fully clothed but without your timing devices on Sunday 19th December 2021. The race will start promptly at 11am. Christmas hats are encouraged but not compulsory.
