Tom and Naomi struggled to get volunteers to marshal at Stiperstones. In the end though folks came forward this time so huge thank to those who stepped up last night. The quote of the night was from William Laye, one of those volunteers:
"Really good fun, had a great spot... Nice seeing the front runners and everyone who followed, really recommend to those who have not marshalled before."
7pm meet at the cattle grid in Carding Mill valley.
The Bradda (Isle of Man) weekend saw some more great results for individuals (Simon Bailey won, Pete Vale was 9th overall and 5th V40 and Mel Price was 5th lady). The Club's teams also did really well - the men and the male vets were 5th, and the ladies were a brilliant 3rd. Disappointingly though we had no MV50 team and no FV40 team - these are categories in which we could easily medal next year if we are sufficiently organised to get 3 runners to most of the races!
Due to lack of content the newsletter will no longer be published on a regular basis. Instead it will be published when sufficient content has been accumulated to warrant it, or there is some special announcement that we wish to communicate to all members. In particular, there will be no July newsletter.
7pm meet at the cattle grid in Carding Mill Valley - downhill practice this week.
England Athletics registrations now seem to be being processed (at least they're taking our payments!). Hopefully those of you who have registered will be receiving your competition licence cards through the post soon.
Technically you need one of these to compete in the British Champs and the UKA Fell Relays but checks don't seem to be happening yet. The club is formulating a policy to get a more consistent approach to registrations in response to draft advice received from the FRA.
