RUN LEADERS.

Will all Run Leaders in the next few weeks try and incorporate the Time Trial route(or parts of) for those in your groups who have not done the course before, in preparation of our 1st Time Trial of the year, 28/03/17. Thanks Eric



1st TIME TRIAL MARCH 28th 2017

The Time Trial is a Club Run starting at the Cricket Club.

A two lap route measuring 5 km is routed in and around the streets of the Aspin Estate. Its a change for everyone from your usual group running on this particular Tuesday. It is a timed event which is repeated again in midsummer to see if you have improved. In early autumn the 3rd Time Trial is a Handicapped event based on your previous results.

I will put a route map on the Club notice board for your perusal.

Thanks Eric



IMPORTANT- Club Championship News – Alteration

News from Eric on a change to the Club Championships…

For various reasons I have altered and added to the Club Championship for 2017. I have taken the Humber Bridge Half Marathon out of the series and added Leeds Half Marathon (14/05/17). Staveley Stampede (25/6/17) is also added.

This now gives members 10 events to choose from and I will score your best 5 results for Championship purposes. Apologies if the above change has inconvenienced anyone’s race planning.

Just a reminder there are four Trophys to compete for this year.
The Ben Campbell Trophy for Senior Men, Trophy for Senior Ladies, Trophy for Veteran Men and Trophy for Veteran Ladies.

Thanks, Eric

 

PECO CROSS COUNTRY RELAYS- GREAT FUN FOR ALL ,LETS GO STRIDERS

Hello members,

I am hoping we can turn out loads of teams  for this event on March 12th. I could also do with some Volunteers to help out as Striders are co-hosting the event  with 2 other clubs.

Its loads of fun -as relays always are.

We could turn out  a Representative team for Striders I lady, 1Vet 40 and 1 Senior man.

We are also offered to bring Man and Ladies team ,  Seniors

Vet + L vet 40

Vet + L vet 50

If anyone wants to come as  an adhoc team ,,these are most welcome. e.g 2 ladies  , 1 man or vice versa, or any other mix.

You do not need to have run cross country at all this season or even Registered for it, its open to all Club members. No Juniors please.

I have had a few enquiries already and would welcome many more  for Running and Volunteering. I am at Club 28/2/17 and available  at eric_morley@hotmail.com     + 01423 866983.

Sooner I have names I can start coordinating teams  those who want that, and  for those who have picked a couple  of friends  to run  with I can pass info to them too.
