We are delighted that Different Strokes will again be supporting this year's Winter League Series. Detail of the prizes for this year's competition will be announced soon. Robert Crawford, the Managing Director has also made a significant contribution to Helm Hill Runners which will help support the Club's activities throughout the year. 

We are also excited to announce that a new sponsor will also be supporting the series in 2020. Pete Bland Sports will be working with Helm Hill throughout the year and this includes the Winter League and other races which the Club organises. The Pete Bland van will be at selected races (details to be confirmed) and this is a great opportunity to support our local running shop. A big thanks to Matt Bland and the team for their help!!
