Club nights and looking for races

Club as normal in the gym Monday and the sports hall on Wednesday at 7:00pm, please can I ask you to bring your completed membership forms and post dated cheques and pass on to Hilary Coventry or Marian Codling on club nights or post to Hilary at the address shown on the form. A thank you to those who have already done so, it make’s life a lot easier in keeping the paper trail up to date!
All members who are running with us as first claim now have England Athletics numbers which they should receive soon by post! Though I know that many of you are now planning your races for next year and if you have lost or not received your registration number and wish to take advantage of the reduced race fee then drop me an email and I will email you your number.
After getting blown about on my run from Cold Kirby on Saturday it was a pleasant relief this morning running in Kilburn Woods, both runs in some stunning scenery and great company and I am already planning what races to target next year. Some are for the challenge and other just for the joy in running in some of the UK’s most beautiful places. This year I have raced in the Lakes,Derbyshire, Stuc a’Chroin and Jura hill races dragging my family with me. My son took part in the junior race on Jura and for the next week on Mull I could not get the T shirt of his back.
Marian has a folder each club night with lots of information on local races and a heap more can be found by typing in the links below,
