Vernon Vets

 

The Vernon Vets Trophy is open to all male vets. The trophy was donated to the club in the 1980’s by a runner following a pools win, hence the name Vernon. It has traditionally been awarded to the best veteran runner with races spread over each of the clubs major disciplines, road, cross country, track and fell (off road).

It was re-instated in 2016 and now includes the ladies with the addition of a new trophy, the Vernon Vets Ladies Trophy.  Races have been chosen to appeal to as wide a number of runners as possible. The off road races are trail races and easy fell races.
