The Wreake Challenge (also known as the three club challenge) is an informal event that is held annually between ourselves, Wreake and Barrow. The 2016 event was hosted by Barrow Runners at East Leake Golf Club at 7pm on Tues 9th August.
The emphasis is on participation, with teams taking along more runners being the most likely to score highly – unlike the league races where only the top 8 (or 4) runners count, the score is driven off the number of runners in the smallest team. As an example, if Barrow had 30 runners, Wreake 25 and Stilton 22 then the first 22 runners from each club would be counted.
After a good run (likely around 5 undulating miles on a mix of footpaths and tracks) there will be something to eat and a raffle in the bar – always a really good evening and doesn’t break the bank.
We hosted the 2015 event at: The Grange Garden Centre, Asfordby Hill, Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire LE14 3QU – running at 7pm on Wednesday 26th August.
