The NRCC also organised an Old Hens race to run in conjunction with the YB race in which 23 members sent 108 birds.
The undisputed winner of this race was Mr & Mrs D Evans who are making this race a speciality of theirs. Their yearling hen being timed in in just over 4 1/2 hours to cover the 218 miles and was the only bird on the day to make over 1400 ypm. Well done Pat & Dave.
