The Jaffa cake League started in 2014 when two jaffa cakes were offered to the winner of the half distance sprint in the Womens only race and three to the winner overall. In 2015 the officials then offered a prize of a full box to the winners with one simple rule, you couldn't win both. 2016 then saw official sponsorship from McVites and for that we thnak them greatly. Last time we checked #jaffacakeleague was a Googlewack (only producing one search result) We look forward to the 2017 season and would like to think everyone for taking part, organising and above all sponsoring these events at Tameside. See you in 2017.
* Won both half distance and overall prize, the second box of Jaffas then goes to 2nd overall.
