The Bob Groves memorial takes place in late May/early June each year in Memory of Bob who sadly passed away in 2003 following an accident at work.

The event is open to everyone and all races are based on time so adults and juniors race against each other with the top 8 adults and the top 8 juniors going into their respective finals. From 2011 we also introduced a "novice" final and this proved to be the best final of the night!

Members of Bob's family, including his Mum Doris, sons Dave and Andrew and his brother Alan all race in the event which is competitive but very friendly too.
