Midlands Road Relays

We are planning on attending the Midlands Road Relays again this year, with the first event being on Saturday, 21st March. We need a Men's team of 12 and Women's teams of 6 and are hoping to take a couple of Women's teams.

A coach has been hired to take us there and bring us back, collecting us from the Dolphin Pub and will cost £10 per person. The club will cover the rest of the cost of the coach and the entry fees to the race.

If you are interested in running, or even just coming along to support then please contact either Richard Kershaw or Lynette Porter. You can use the contact form here, or alternatively just come and speak to us at the club.

It really is a great day out and following the race, there will be a few drinks in the Dolphin Pub which has been good fun on previous occasions.

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
