Big thank you for the race reports, please keep sending them to firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish for them to be included in the round-up each week.
Lots to talk about this week. Please ensure you read the Upcoming events/ requests below so you don’t miss out!
But hold up before we get started, I’d just like to say it was great to see Colin Thompson, our Men’s Club Captain, back in action at the Warrington Parkrun and finishing 2nd in his first Parkrun since late July.
Upcoming events/ requests:
Would anyone be interested in getting a mini bus up to Anglesea race track for the Cybi borders league Sun 6th? Due to the distance I think it may put people off but if we had decent numbers then a mini bus could be an option? Send Chris Fitzpatrick a mail if you’re interested please, we might even stop off on the way home for pub lunch and a pint!
Using the Fell running incentive of beer there eh Fitzy!!? You road runners have changed.
Remember, this Saturday (24th October) sees the first Cross Country Counter of the season, the Liverpool & District league race at Beacon Park near Skelmesdale, starts at 2pm. Post code WN8 7RU, on the top field.
For those new to cross country (or just scarred from school outings in pants, vest and plimsolls from the lost property bin) I’d really recommend it. It’s fantastic and traditional winter work for the road runners and speedsters out there, there is plenty of mud and some nice bumps to keep the Felsby section interested, and will certainly lay a fantastic base for 2016 season. It’s really inclusive, friendly and fun, so give it a go!
