Sorry about that but we have to keep everybody safe
I live in Bolsover will there be any road closures on the day?
Any money we make will go to the Cancer Centre. The group organising the event is entirely voluntary with professional help from MacMillan, we have corporate sponsors and have begged and borrowed resources to cover the costs (see our home page for thank you’s). The bigger the contribution we can make the better. So please donate now.
Does all of the money go to the Cancer Centre at Chesterfield Royal Hospital?
Oh yes!! They will be available before the event and on the day. They are free, but a donation would be appreciated (we suggest two pounds). Whether you are racing or not, it is a great programme and it tells you a lot more about the town.
Is there a Souvenir Programme?
Want to know more about Bolsover or how to get there? What about road closures?
If you can’t find the answer here email me and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
Okay, fair enough. Just email the organiser with this link. Make sure you put your name and address on it so we can identify you on the database. Sorry abut that.
Enough of this nonsense - I haven’t had my email confirmation of registration.
Yes!! He is so old, so much larger than life and roars so loudly that some people from the Home Counties think he is a dinosaur. The locals like him and call him Dennis apart from one lady I met who once mistook him for Frank.
Is there really a Beast of Bolsover?
