Your news please!

typewriterJust a quick reminder – PLEASE send your news in so we’ve all got something to read in the weekly blog updates.

Our blog writers have an uphill job getting reports out of you (and we know Col hates hills). Make their job easy – send it in! Doesn’t have to be about fast stuff. Maybe you got your parkrun under 30 mins for the first time?

Let’s hear from some of the new people – what was your first Borders League like? What was it like turning up for a club run for the very first time? If you’re at a race, have a quick word at the finish “Who’s going to send a couple of sentences about this?”. Don’t worry about the Enger-lish. Come on, don’t be shy!

What’s all this then?

queryI started this thing just over a month ago to get more information about the club, and the joys of running, to the outside world. The old website had gone a bit stale and its author had moved on. This is a simple way to update things, without geek skills.

As a club I think we undersell ourselves. We’re a great club, but for whatever reason that message doesn’t always get out. This is one way.

Success?
We’ve had well over 700 hits so far — a lot of websites don’t get that in a lifetime! So it looks like we’ve tapped into something.

What next?
Longer term we’ll resurrect the old helsbyrunningclub.com website and get everything integrated on one site. Baby steps though.

It’s not just my blog, it’s Helsby RC’s blog. Get involved, suggest a story, heck write a story, send me your pics, comment on the posts (click the comment button on every post, start with that one down there if you like). Andy and Adair are also admins and can add content to the site. Thoughts welcome. Over to you lot…
