Members Update 27 April 2012
It’s nearly weekend! Here is this week’s missive….
To all our London Marathoners who did brilliantly. Full details on the website here
Request from the Secretary
If you have already sent in your membership forms and subs, many many thanks. I am in the process of checking/updating information with the England Athletics database, which is experiencing some technical issues, making the whole process more long winded than it should be.
Please can you let me know if you have changed address this year. At least then I can work from a short list rather than checking everybody! Email or catch me at training.
Pub Runs – from Sally Social
As most of you know I have swapped roles with Janice and am now the club’s social secretary.
First mission for me is to get the Sunday pub runs organised for the rest of the year. I have posted the dates as events on Facebook but for those of you who are not on Facebook the dates and venues are as follows:-
20th May – The Mill Tavern, Haslemere
17th June – The Sun Inn, Dunsfold
15th July – Dog & Pheasant, Brook
19th August – Old Thorns, Liphook
16th September – The Noah’s Ark, Lurgashall
21st October – The Crown, Chiddingfold
18th November – The Woolpack, Elstead
16th December, Duke of Cambridge, Tilford
Please put these dates in your diaries.
Some of you will know the schedule already but for those of you who haven’t attended one of these the idea is there will be two running groups going out. One will be approx. 10K and the other approx. 20K. We all meet in the relevant pub car park at 10.00 a.m.
Afterwards we meet back at the pub for a social. Either lunch (perhaps BBQ) or /and just a drink; whatever fits in with your personal plans. Family/friends all welcome to join us for one or both of these.
I have provisionally booked a BBQ for us at the Mill Tavern on the 20th. To this end would you kindly confirm if you will be attending by preferably going into Facebook and pressing “Attending” or else via email by clicking here.
Most importantly the next pub run going from the Mill Tavern will be in remembrance of Chloe Piper, former club member who is very much missed by those who knew her.
This is an excellent way for the newer members to get to meet other members. We really hope as many of you as possible can join us on some of these dates. It would be wonderful to have a big group for our Remembrance Run on 20th May.
Look forward to seeing you there and getting to know some of our newer members.
Surrey Road Race League
The closing dates for entries to the Sutton and Dorking races (numbers 2 and 3 in the league) are approaching fast. Road Captain Bruce thinks we will field a full team for the Sutton race and are nearly at a full team for Dorking. If you are planning to run in these or any of the other races that count towards the league, please let Bruce know. Click here to email him.
Details of all the fixtures can be found here.
