Hi all,

Given that it's been about 2.5 years since the last one (2015 4 Hour Enduro), I feel that it's way past time to re-run this event...

I'm hoping to run it in May, but there is currently not a fixed date set for this event.
(Suggestions of suitable / not suitable dates are appreciated)


Once again, this enduro it is to raise funds for the charity of Dave's (Creator of Race Coordinator) choice.
Race Coordinator Charity Website

Whilst I appreciate that it's an American foundation, the cures and treatments they discover are used in children's hospitals worldwide.
Also, Dave has produced, and is supporting an excellent piece of software that most of us are using on a regular basis. ALL 'donations' for his software are forwarded on to children's charities.
Additional donations on the day will also be very much accepted, and forwarded on...


Further details will be going up both here, and on the Way2Fast Facebook Page soon, and team registrations will gladly be accepted on either...


Thanks
Michael
