Yup, I’m bringing up Christmas already.
I may seriously regret this but we’re mixing it up the year and doing a different race, the Percy Pud (www.steelcitystriders.co.uk/percy-pud-10k/). The complexity comes that is is a /very/ popular race and sells out in a couple of hours.
I’ve contacted the organisers and they’ve said for everyone to enter normally and if anyone misses out they’ll see what they can do.
So this requires a little effort from those who want to run to either enter when it opens up (5pm on Sunday 1st October 2017). I will be posting many reminders and the link before time. If you think you’re unable to book yourself buddy up with someone who can (and that doesn’t mean I’ll have 30 buddies! I’m actually travelling at that time).
Obviously, we’ll find a nice place to eat too and likely organise a coach. Of course, if someone wants to step up and take on one or both of these roles feel free!
The Sunday is the usual for our pre-Xmas Xmas Do, first Sunday of December.
And remember, an ADRC vest is for life, not just for Christmas.
Is at Thornhurst Manor on Friday 27th (last Friday of January). 1900 for 1930 start.
If you have /not/ already given Uncle Mick your names/numbers then you need to do so by end of next week as we have to advise place of numbers.
If you’re struggling to see Uncle Mick, then let me know but I won’t be at club much next couple of weeks so its better to tell him direct.
Meet at Royal 1030 for 1100 start. There’s a twist this year with extra prize for being closest to your own predicted time. Draw for VLM rejects to follow.
Amber needs your food order by Sunday 20th latest to submit to the restaurant. We have 65 at the meal so pre ordering is essential… Please get it to her, she can’t be chasing everyone…
Its that complicated it requires its own post.
Is on… The race is already full but we have a block booking of 30 places, please let me know if you are definitely wanting a place to run (beyond breaking an arm or leg in the meantime, it can happen…).
If so I need:
UKA number if you have it (otherwise I have to dig out).
If you entered 2015 I have these details already so just let me know you want a place.
For food we are going to Ye Olde Bell @ Barnby Moor. Menu and deposit info to follow but as the Xmas menu is 3 courses @ £35 the club is contributing £10 to the food too.
Update – sample menu here: Sample Menu. Amber is taking orders and needs numbers by the end of the month…
Update again – 30 of 30 numbers allocated. Right now there isn’t anyone formally waiting on a number but if you cannot run for any reason you can check with me if someone is waiting. If so we’ll /try/ and see if we can transfer. If not you owe the club the entry fee!
Message from Uncle Fez:
Hiya, its that time to arrange the London Marathon trip (sunday 24th April). Typical trip, go down Saturday return Monday evening, staying at the Columbia hotel, Lancaster Gate OR arrange the trip to suite your requirements. The train tickets will be available quite soon , so numbers are required as soon as possible . If interested please put your name on the list in the changing room or contact myself or Phil.
Is first Friday in February (5th) rather than the last in January as Owston Lodge was unavailable. Tickets will be available soon.
They’ll be drinks at the Royal after running club Tuesday night…
