Autumn Handicap 2017

With the nights already drawing in and following some pretty testing twilight conditions for the finish line crew in 2016, this year's Autumn Handicap will take place a few weeks earlier than normal on the 14th of September.

The race, open to U17's and up, starts and finishes on the path adjacent to Stevenson Drive right outside the main entrance to the track and the first runner will be set off at 7pm.


The 2017 edition of the MTR will take place on Saturday 9th September, and with just less than 5 weeks to go, this is a request for volunteers.

As with previous CAAC events, it is hoped that as many of our members as possible will actually run the race, but the positions noted below are the minimum required for the race to proceed safely, so I would ask you to consider adding your name to the list.

Allermuir Gallop Thursday 6 July @ 19:00

For those unaware (& looking for a change to your Thursday night run...) this year’s Allermuir Gallop will take place on Thursday 6 July starting at 19:00. The race is approximately 2.5 miles with 1000 ft of climb. Last year the Tranent Tornado Murray Strain was the first runner to break twenty minutes over the course finishing ahead of a quality field. Golden Trotter Megan Mowbray kept the honours in the Trotters with a great run to finish first in the Ladies race.
