St. Bede's A.C. E-News

Bradford Millennium Way Relay

A big, big thank you to everyone who helped out in any way to help make the Millennium Way weekend a huge success.  With 42 visitors from Belgium and Holland and 3 New Zealanders to accommodate, transport and entertain for the whole weekend (as well as actually organising the race) it was a much bigger operation than we've ever undertaken before and I think we came out of it with great credit.  It is nice to see everyone from the club pulling together to get things done.

We have had a number of e-mails of thanks for a great weekend and of course some excellent coverage of the race in the Telegraph & Argus
