Not a lot in the inbox this week so straight over to Laura with a reminder about our 4 Villages Half Marathon
4 Villages Half Marathon – We need you!
With just over a month to go to the Essar 4 Villages Half Marathon on Sunday 20th January, preparations are well under way.
For new members, this is our annual half marathon organised by the club. We normally have around 2000 entries and raise over £10,000 for local charities and groups. It also supports the club, helping to keep subs down. However a successful race is only possible with the support of all club members so we need your help!
How you can get involved
Sat 19th Jan – help out by packing goody bags and getting the club house ready for race day. (9.30am until approx midday) – email Laura Baynham-Hughes
Sunday 20th Jan – you can either volunteer to marshal on the route (please email
Richard Stradling or Rachel Arnold if you can help) or help out at the start and finish areas (email Laura Baynham-Hughes). Times vary depending on your role but you will be needed for some hours between 9-2pm
Please remember if you are planning on running the race then you need to provide a volunteer for the Sunday or to help out on the Saturday.
PS If you are going to a race in the next few weeks please take some flyers to hand out at the finish – there is a stack at the front desk at the sports club!
NW Sunday XC League race 3 – Arrowe Park on Sunday 16/12/18
On Sunday we had a good turn out at Arrow Park for the 3rd race of the NW X-Country League. The Ladies finished 8th and the men 17th out of a total 25 teams in the competition. This was a good result considering that our teams were mostly made up of vets on the day. The XC league website is down at the moment so I can’t see the individual standings but you should be able view all the results one the website’s back up at: http://www.stevesaunders.co.uk
