GOLDEN ACRE PARK RELAY
 
Don't forget, it's the Golden Acre Park Relay this Wednesday (17 August), starts 19:15 from the Arthington Road car park (the one near the end of King Lane, not the one on Otley Road).  Teams of three, enter on the day (suggest you get there just before 7pm), 10 per team (suggest the slowest runner pays 3.34) - just get together in threes to make teams.  More details on www.abbeyrunners.co.uk
