Invitation to all ADRC members.
On Tuesday 19th September, ADRC are going to trial a little event in the memory of our dear friend Dave Bullock. This is a fabulous suggestion from Kathie Wordsworth.
We are going to do a relay around the Norton 9 course, as this was one of Dave’s favourite races.
The intention is to have a short leg at either end of the relay (3 person team), so as to encompass everyone who wishes to have a trot.
Teams will be allocated on the night.
Leg lengths will be roughly 1.5 miles, 6 miles, and 1.5 miles to finish.
We will sort getting the middle leg runners to and from their leg if they wish.
Due to the late nights drawing in, please meet at the changing rooms at 6pm, for 6.30pm start. Should the event go ok, we will bring the date forward next year.
As Dave was an avid Leeds United fan, I feel it would be appropriate for everyone to wear blue, white and yellow (all 3 colours please), somewhere within their running kit. Ie, blue trainers, white socks, yellow top, something along those lines.
There will be a little something for all of us that attend on the night (I bet you can’t guess what).
I also think that it would be great if we all made a donation to a charitable cause on the night. I will be suggesting that ADRC match any monies raised on the evening.
Please note that this is intended be a fun night of running, as Dave always loved it when the club had a bit of a get together.
I’m sure also that once the running and showering is done, then it would be nice to raise a glass (or two) to Dave, afterwards at Norton Club.
Hope to see you there, whether it is as a runner, spectator or a helper.
