It’s not often you get a cheque from your Council, it’s normally the other way round – you end up paying them !
Today, our TL Garry Rhodes, received a £50 donation from Bolton Council to the Team for our ’Standby Rescue Cover’ involvement in the Muddy March Hare trail race running events in the Croal/Irwell valley area of Moses Gate Country Park, on 30th March 2008.
The event was jointly organised by Bolton Countryside Ranger Service and Bolton Harriers, who together provided all the way marking for the routes of the two events and marshalls throughout the courses at all changes of direction.
The 5 kilometre trail race took in a route around the former gravel pits and canal area of Darcy Lever and Fog Lane with 50 runners. A much shorter 2.5 kilometre fun run took place in the same area with 41 runners.
Our thanks are expressed to Bolton Council for this very kind gesture.
