This year the Summer Handicaps series of races will be held on the first Wednesday of the month from April to September.
On the evenings where the handicap races are taking place there will be no training from the Xcel Centre.
Following consultation with members we will be using a number of venues of the series of races, the first and last venues will be from the Xcel Sports Centre using the Westwood Business park course. Don’t worry, we have listened to feedback and this year it will only be the two lap option! Each course will obviously have a different distance and will be between 3 & 5 miles.
