Very quiet week in the build up to Christmas. Just the parkrun results and a couple of notices, the first from Jackie K and the second from Paul Foster.
Here are the consolidated club results from Delamere, Widnes, Newcastle, Ellesmere Port and Phoenix Park.
The draw for our single London Marathon club place took place before
training last Wed. Charlie Roberts was pulled out the hat first, we wish
Charlie all the best in training and on Aprils race day.
The next 10K & 6K Time Trial which is back along Greenway (from the
Guilden Sutton to Chester & back, torches & reflective gear essential)
was pencilled in for Dec 13th, in order to try and get a 3rd one in
before the end of the year. Captain Colin has suggested it may be more
popular and will avoid the Xmas rush up to Xmas, if we delay it and do
the time trial between Xmas & New Year. So please put December 27th in
your diaries for this.
Please remember its the Xmas Handicap Race on 20th December (a time to
break away from the Xmas rush and come and contest this annual (fancy
dress if you wish) gallop from Tesco to Godscroft Lane & back before
going back to the club house for a bite to eat & Secret Santa (please
bring along a wrapped £5 present). Dave & Lesley will be in touch soon
organising the food and asking for volunteers to bring along pans of hot
soup (that’s if we decide to do the same as the last few years, it just
hits the spot!).
That’s it for now
….and Paul Fs…..
The Cheshire cross country championship is fast approaching us now. The venue this year is Delamere forest, January 6th 2018.
I will be entering Helsby runners before Xmas so I don’t get caught out in the festive spirit and forget. Please confirm your name before Thursday 21st December.
Entering all the names together saves on administration fees
So if any Helsby folk would like to run please email me at email@example.com or respond on Facebook. I will post a Facebook page once the blog is out this week.
The club pays for all the fees for every runner so please check dates before entering to make sure that you can run.
Look forward to seeing an army of green vests around the forest.
All the best
