Race 4: 25th May, 7.00pm – Penistone Football Club, Church View Road, Penistone S36 6AT.

The football club is in the centre of Penistone near the Railway Station. There is some parking at the club, as directed by marshals and plenty of free car parks in the town. Toilets are in the football ground. The presentations will be made as soon as possible in the club house. If you are a winner please stay to collect your prize or ask someone to collect it for you.

All races are 5 miles and Danum Harriers must be your first claim club in order to run in Harriers colours.

The cost is just £10 for all four races, and for those new to the format, the set up is similar to the Cross Country in that your £10 buys you a number which you will use for all four races. *Important note also, official club colours must be worn for these events, which in our case is the blue vest/tee with yellow stripe (not training tops or cotton Harriers tees).

Race numbers are limited so will be allocated on a first to pay basis. This can be done preferably online to the club’s bank account, or if this is not possible then in cash to one of the committee.
