Bitton 5K Series

Today should have been the 1st race in the Bitton Road Runners 5k Series.
 We have decided to hold this as a virtual run for Bitton Club members.

 You can complete the run anytime between now and Sunday 17th May

 
RULES
 
 The route needs to be either an out and back or a loop. Submit your time to Tina Dury  ideally with some kind of evidence, screenshot of Strava or photo of your watch.  I will collate the results and publish a league table.

 Next month we will do the same again but the run will need to be completed during the week commencing 1st June preferable running the same route as run number 1.

 This is just for fun and to try and keep everyone motivated and connected.  Please don't feel like you have to compete and please don't worry about your time.

5K Series

I guess it will come as no surprise to everyone that we have had to make the unfortunate decision to postpone the upcoming Bitton 5K Series. This in not a decision that was taken lightly, and we are hoping to schedule the series in the Autumn if we are given the go ahead by the authorities. At the moment we cannot give a precise date and it maybe that we will need to hold the series on a Saturday or Sunday morning to overcome the lack of day light during the Autumn evenings.Please continue to stay at home and stay safe and we look forward to see you all as soon as possible.

Bristol 10K Refunds

BRISTOL 10K REFUNDS
As you will be aware the Bristol 10k has been cancelled and we will hopefully have the money refunded to us within the next few days. We will need to set about refunding the money to you individually.
If you paid by BACs please can you e mail me jan.isaac57@gmail.com with your bank details as follows:
Bank:
Sort code:
Account Number:
Reference : ( Your name and 10k) .
I will then collate and pass onto Tony who will sort the bank transfers.
If you paid in cash I can refund it when we are back to normal although if you would prefer a bank transfer, let me know and send details as above.
If you paid by cheque I can rip it up or return to you - just let me know.
The only other complication is that I understand the runners who paid directly without taking advantage of the club discount have had a £5 admin fee debited from their refund. (which makes me very cross!) Simplyhealth have not made that clear to me yet but once the refund has gone into BRR account we should be clearer .

Hope you are all well and keeping safe.

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
