Hi all, a reminder, our race briefing for tomorrow is here. Please take it in if you're running.

If you're interested in an on-the-day entry, please make sure you read it carefully. We cannot take OTD entries after 10.30 due to needing to process numbers - the main race will be delayed if so and we can't afford for that to happen.

Registration will be upstairs in the Rugby Club bar. Thank you all again, look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

For anyone doing the Riverbank Challenge 2019, please see below.

First of all, thank you for entering the event; some new faces, some repeat, some who have done it for longer than they care to remember.

We trust everyone is looking forward to Sunday, the weather forecast looks better than it did at one stage so hopefully that holds.

In advance of the race, please find some very important information and timings below. Any questions, please comment or DM us. Thank you for your support, in 2020 we will be back with the new-look Riverbank Challenge 10k, on Wednesday June 3, to celebrate our club's 35th anniversary.

๐Ÿš— Car Parking and changing facilities: Available at Goole Rugby Club, Westfield Lane, Goole, DN14 5PW, from shortly after 8.30am. If you live in Goole, please try and walk/cycle to the rugby club if possible as parking isn't unlimited.

โœ๏ธ Registration and on-the-day entries: Open from 9am. We do have safety pins if you don't!!

We will have a very limited number of on-the-day entries. However, we have sold out of our main race places so anyone who takes an on-the-day entry is being told that the fee is reduced to ยฃ10, but WILL NOT include a finisher t-shirt as we simply do not have enough.
