Laa Columb Killey Traditional Parish Fair
Thursday 24th June 2004.
racewalker Adrian Cowin has taken on responsibility for organising the sports
events in the Laa Columb Killey Fair which will be held on Thursday 24th June.
I shall be teaming up with Adrian to organise and promote the 5 mile 'Marathon'
run and race walk.
These events once
attracted large fields of local athletes and fun runners, but sadly over recent
years numbers have declined with only 4 runners and 6 racewalkers taking part
last year. This year we hope to revive these events with plenty of promotion
In the interests of
safety I have agreed with Graham Davies from the IOMAA to conduct a full risk
assessment of the course and provide appropriate course signing and marshals,
in return for the issuing of an official road race permit.
Watch this space for
more details soon.
