If you'd like to enter, just let me know, and your name and I'll add you to the team entry sheet. In doing so, you'll be agreeing to the following: "All competitors should be fit to run and understand that they enter at their own risk. The organisers will not be held responsible for any injury or illness incurred by any person during, or as a result of the event, or for any property lost on the course or in the vicinity of the course. I hereby declare that the above are amateurs according to the rules of UK Athletics and accept the terms and conditions of the competition."

Lastly, classes are as normal, with the exception of the Monday (13th) - the hall will be available for practice, but Graduado Kung Fu won't be there as it's Mrs Kung Fu's birthday.
