Wacky Races 2018/19 Winner!!

We have a new Wacky Races champ, Laura Maciver was today presented with the famous Wacky Racers Winter Series Shield! The series went right down to the wire in the last race with Laura just pipping Brenda to the title by 4 points, Valerie Hamilton had a great result in the final race to finish third overall. Laura, who had never run under 30 minutes in a 5k before this series, had brilliant performances throughout the winter and in the final race improved her PB to 26 mins! Well done Laura!!

Thanks to everyone that took part in the Wacky Races this past winter, 69 different folk ran in at least one race. Extra special kudos to Laura, Brenda, Karen Wight and Scott Engine Ear for running all five races! Also big thanks to Eve, Willie and Adrienne for helping us with timing.
