Calderdale Way Relay – Sunday 13th May 2012.
We are looking to enter teams for this years relay, but need to gauge interest before committing to an entry.
If you would like to run please contact Steve Pearson – email@example.com
Details of this years’ CW relay can be found here – http://www.halifaxharriers.co.uk/races/calderdale-way-relay.html
Just a warning for anyone at the track on Tuesday night this week- there is a Fun Fair set up on the overflow car park next to the Arena – so there may be limited car parking space available for us to use immediately around the Arena and you should probably allow a little extra time to park.

A massive thank you to everybody who ran, but a bigger thank you to all the lads who ran at such short notice, like Rob who rushed over from Wetherby at the last minute to run on Leg 11. Thanks also to Pete Ramsdale for bringing the tent and to my missus Jane for helping out on the day with numbers , and babysitting duties etc.
Once again it was a very stressful week for me and Ali as we tried to coax and cajole people to run for the club, we have 200 members but you wouldnt think so when you try and put a team together. The race was advertised on the website front page for at least 6 weeks and I personally e.mailed at least 40 people 6 times but still we were runners short on the Friday. It seems strange that me and Tony are in our 65th years of age and still are running for Horwich in the A Team ( Yes the A Team )
On the plus side we had a great day out, we met runners we hadn’t seen for ages, we chatted to other team members, it was like a festival of running and very enjoyable.
