Vets section

The YVAA multi terrain Grand prix races are a good place to start with the Vets; about 5 – 6 miles long they vary from almost pancake flat as at York to quite hilly (!!!), like our own from Neiley. Races can be entered on the day, only cost £5.00 to enter, cater for all age ranges and abilities, from 35 to 80+. At most races there is also free food and a hot drink after the race. Prizes are given for all 5 year age ranges, depending on entry, with several spot prizes as well.

If anyone would like to try out these races next year and would like a lift please see Rob (on the desk) at the club or by email. Details of all the races we compete in can be found at www.yvaa.org as well as from Rob and the Vets Notice Board at the Clubhouse.

Club records (women 35-65 race times - top ten runners and men 35-75 race times - top ten runners)
