February Quick Newsletter

Hello all, a quick quickie to remind you about this Saturday's race in the park and to get you invovled with the Open 5 on April 7th
Chingford League – This Saturday, Victoria Park
This Saturday is the final major race of the Chingford League and it’s the club’s turn to host this race in Victoria Park (tarmac, so you don’t even need spikes!).  We are doing very well in the league this year with some strong performances – a good show on Saturday could see us take a prize.  It’s just under 5 miles , with the Seniors race starting at 2:30pm.  The Junior races start at 1:45 and 2:05.  even if this is your first race of the season it would be great to see you there.

Open 5  2012 – Compete or Help Out
A reminder about the Open 5 on Easter Saturday,  one of the most important events we host each year which brings good publicity for the club, keeps the historic events going and also much-needed funds for your club too. A few of you have kindly offered to get involved with the Open 5 but we don’t yet have enough.

If you can’t enter or help out  on the day, you could always print an Open 5  flyer or three at the link below and post up at your work place or give to your friends/colleagues. 

Those of you who have benefitted from the Monday, Tuesday or Thursday training sessions but who have yet to get involved competing or helping out - now is your chance to get involved– it’s good fun and that is what keeps the club going.  For this Saturday, we particularly need marshals for the course, help with the finish funnel area and also assistance serving tea and coffee around race time.  Please get in touch with me write2sim |at| or post on the clubnoticeboard.  For the Open 5, there is a wider range of tasks, see the previous email sent on 29th Jan.  Without your support, these events can’t go ahead.

That's it for now.  I truly look forward to seeing you at either or both of these events.
