Nov/Dec update from Dave

Wednesday 28 November - Torch run

An opportunity to run away from the busy streets as we plan to run the 5 mile time trial route by torchlight. We will start from the Rowing Club as usual at 6.15 PM, so please bring a torch if you would like to join in. For those who prefer, there will also be the option of a regular city streets run.

Sunday 2 December - Cross Country League: Fforest Fields

Details of the venue and course are attached. For those who would like to share transport, please meet at the Rowing Club ready to leave at 9.00 AM.

We have been advised that showers at the nearby campsite will be available for runners to use after the race. If you use the showers then please remove muddy shoes before entering the shower block.

Monday 3 December - London Marathon draw

Taking place at 7.30 PM in the Rowing Club bar.

You will need to meet the following criteria in order to take part in the ballot:

  1. You have been a paid member of the club for a year or more
  2. You did not receive a place through the club draw last year
  3. You have proof that you have entered the race and been rejected

Please note that you also need to be present in person at the draw or have someone else present to represent you.

Christmas party

Details of pick-up points for the coach transport can be found on the club website where you can also book your pick-up. If you intend to use the coach then please make payment to Gail when paying for the meal.

Race entries

We have received nearly 150 Muddy Woody entries within two weeks of the forms being available. With an entry limit of 350, please don't delay if you want to take part. It also makes our jobs much easier if you can pre-enter the New Year's Day 10K and there is also a £4 saving compared to entering on the day.

Christmas activities

We will be arranging various events to take place during the festive season, so please check the website for further details.

All the best.
