150 Miles Leaderboard


We have now tweaked the 150 Miles Leaderboard project -   attached is a summary of the small print and how it will work as one of the key events to celebrate 150 years of the Club.

More details will be sent to members shortly and posted at the clubhouse and Norman Park. This is for everyone in the club, young or old; so do put 7 April in your diaries when we encourage ALL members to join us at Norman Park for at least 5 to 12 minutes to run a mile to get this event under way. Starting time 11.00am.

 We want to see marathon runners, park runners, walkers, throwers, jumpers, Wednesday nighters, Vice Presidents and Past Presidents as well as Norman Park season ticket holders!
