Norton 9 Marshals

First Sunday of March is looming; as always marshals are required and all help is appreciated. Its these events that allow our club to operate at almost zero cost (certainly this year) to its members.

Its the usual 0900 meet at the school. I don’t know who is coordinating marshals but will post when I do.

Thanks in advance.

Middelkerke – Update

Despite being previously told by the organisers the Middelkerke races are 21st August this year (their rule is 3rd Sunday in August, our 10 miler is 2nd Sunday in August) we have now had confirmation they have had to move their race to the 14th due to a clash with another festival.

This unfortunately clashes with our Askern 10mile and means its highly likely we won’t be doing the usual Middelkerke trip.

Suggestions are invited for an alternative and whilst there aren’t explicit set criteria my understanding of broad requirements are:

  • suitable races to give most people the opporuntity to run (Middelkerke had 5km through 20km over the years, recently a 5km, 8km and 16km)
  • within two hours of the Chunnel if coaching to the continent
  • hotel large enough to house us all (20ish rooms?)
  • restaurants again large enough to house big groups
  • school holidays

Fez had a great suggestion, we could go on our regular dates regardless and organise a handicap / time trial ourselves! I like how he thinks…

The Club Handicap. Also known as the “Two Times Winner and Current Holder Tordoff’s Club Handicap”

Its on Monday 28th December, 10.00am start, meeting up at Royal at 9.30am. Pie will be served at 11.30am.
