Runner's Runner of the Year voting

It is time to vote for your RUNNER OF THE YEAR for 2015.
This is not a popularity competition, but an opportunity to vote for the male and female club members who you believe have inspired, encouraged, supported or shown dedication to the club or improved the most throughout the year.

Simply head to the online form to cast your vote. You can vote for one lucky gent and one lovely lady.
All voting is anonymous and no one will be able to see who you vote for so please reward the person who you think deserves it! More information and last year’s videos can be found on last year's ROTY page:   
This year, you are also able to vote for TRIATHLETE OF THE YEAR. Whilst the club has not had an active Triathlon series this year, many members have still completed triathlons and therefore are eligible to win this trophy. There will be one trophy for the Triathlete of the Year whether male or female and all those who have entered a triathlon this year are eligible to vote for the winner of this award. Voting for this is on the same page as above.
Voting will close on Friday 4 December 2015 at 10pm and the winners will be announced and presented with a trophy at the Christmas Party on 11 December 2015.

Happy Voting!

Marshals at the home XC event

TO ALL MEMBERS who have kindly volunteered to help our club by marshalling at the 3CXC event we are hosting on Sunday 25th October...

We will start setting up the course at 7.30am. (Clocks change so extra hour in bed, Yeeeees!!) If anyone is available this early please let Tony know. Otherwise, be at the Kingsway Centre by 9.15am latest for race briefing at 9.30am. (Race starts 10.30am) During the next few days Tony will allocate marshaling positions and duties to each person individually.
It will probably be a bit cold, even raining. Might be muddy! Arrive prepared, and don't forget to bring your hi-viz tops.

Hot drinks will be served to marshals in the club house before and after courtesy of Jane Bayes and her crew.

Steve Stredwick is again race director and he'll be at Croyland Park this Saturday morning (17th) to do a marshals walkthrough at 10.30am. Please make this if you can.
This is a big race with about 350 to 400 runners, plus supporters, so its important we do it right. If you need to drop out please let Tony know beforehand as the club are down on volunteers this year.​
