Hello everyone. I hope you're all keeping safe and well. It's another very short newsletter this week I'm afraid. Enjoy the half term and I hope the weather improves!
Priory Relays Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th November 2020
By now you should have received two emails about the Priory Relays - one is to ask if you want to participate and the other to ask if you can volunteer to help stage the event. If you have not yet replied please can I urge you to do so.
Please note that there seems to be an intermittent problem with Hotmail/MSN/Live email delivery at the moment which means that some people are getting an email delivery failure when attempting to reply to for example, Tom or Nat. This is nothing to do with the club email system and if you do experience it please try re-sending your email, it will get through eventually.
A reminder of the details :-
The Priory Relays will be held at the Mid Surrey Pony Club, Hurst Road, Walton on the Hill, KT20 5BN.
The plan is to run the ladies teams on Saturday 14th November starting from 10:00AM and men on 15th November in the same format.
The course will be approx 1.5 miles long and there will be 4 runners per team. We will be using chip timing to record individual runners' times.
We are planning to enter 2 ladies' teams and 6 men's teams.
Ian's Wednesday Improvers and Recovery Run
As Ian Edmonds is on his own this week numbers will be limited to 12 and it will be a case of first come first served. If you know that you can't make the session this week, or you definitely plan to run it, it would be helpful if you could post a message on the WhatsApp group to get an idea of numbers.
Beachy Head Marathon and Half Marathon
Nick Wade and Kate Knight completed the Beachy Head Marathon on Saturday in what must have been truly horrendous conditions. Nick finished in 4:59:50 (phew!) and Kate finished in 8:22:04. Well done to both of you!
I also noticed that Chaarl Jordan completed the Beachy Head Half Marathon the previous Sunday (18th October) in a speedy 1:37:19 - well done to you too Chaarl!
Saturday Social Group
A reminder that there will be a Saturday Social Run on 31st October.
