Cribyn and Mynydd Troed Races - Transport

A final reminder that it's the Cribyn race this Saturday and another good opportunity to grab those vital away race points for the Mercia champs. As there weren't quite enough people to justify booking a bus / coach, folks will have to travel down by car. Tom has kindly volunteered to help co-ordinate the car share.
Can you let him know please if you're either intending to drive down in your own car or if you would like a lift. He's on (07886) 689234. Good luck everyone!

Coaching Courses

I now have the dates etc. for the next batch of leader and coaching courses - these are also on the FRA website.
There are two courses offered at present. The LiRF (Leader in Running Fitness) is the equivalent of the old level one course and covers organising running groups, covering things like warm-ups, training sessions, safety, etc. at a fairly basic level. It is specifically tailored to Fell and Mountain Runningand is an official UKA qualification. This course lasts a day and will be run three times in 2012:
