So the Cider sessions are new for 2020, following in the footsteps of the successful Summer Sessions at Moreton.  An extra day of racing allows you to get in a run around work … or maybe a marathon or a half or a 10k after work to make it 3 runs over the weekend. 

8 hour timed lapped event. Now the difference to the Frolic is you can turn up and start anytime in that period. Prizes for furthest ran Male & Female.  Luckily you have a massive area to run on and its a nice 6km loop.
