Club vests

The club rules state that you should wear your club vest in all competitive races. Exceptions can be made for example if running for charity but only if you inform the committee at least 14 days in advance. Now the important bit - If you run without a vest then you effect the results of your club mates and this is unfair. Even if you dont intend to compete in the club championship or race of 8 you still effect the scores of those who do.   If you don't wear your vest for whatever reason then it's your responsibility to ensure that the website admins know this. You can tell any committee member or Rich Kershaw ( website admin) it's also important to enter your club name when entering races, it makes it much easier for website admins to find your results
