CLUB STANDARDS 2016

Congratulations to everyone who attained a club standard at the AGM last night. For the benefit of new members and those who were unable to attend the AGM last night, this is the second year the club has run its Club Standards programme. The target times are all based on British Athletics times; it is a real achievement to get one, as they are by no means entry-level standards. Full details on the website.

At our AGM last year we handed out 22 certificates for 2015. Last night, for 2016 we handed out 40!!

As a committee first and foremost we want everyone to enjoy their running and if you simply want to run for fun and a bit of exercise you will continue to receive as much encouragement as those members who want to aim for a club standard.

The following were presented with their certificates last night.

Santa Run 2016

 

Well done to everyone who took part in this year's Santa run! We had 12 teams out chasing down reindeer and medals tonight, with just 9 seconds between the winning teams!!

The post race entertainment was possibly as much fun as the race. Thanks to Ged and Dougie, and to Lee, Martin, Andrew and David who played for us. It was really great to have you guys playing!

Results are availble in the results section of the website.

Thanks also to Neil Lackenby for providing sports massage, and Caroline from Good Food Good Feelings for taking along her energy bars.

Results are available now for you. Team results are still to be finalised and will be updated soon.

See you all next year.
