Summary Minutes from July's Committee Meeting
Are available here.
New Saturday Social Group 10:30AM from Priory Park
The first Saturday Social Group run took place in the mid-morning sun last Saturday (8th August).
We already have a list of 10 potential attendees - thanks to everyone who has shown an interest.
Next week we will stick to a run around Priory Park again - a maximum of 3 loops.
You can read about the new group on the RPAC Noticeboard here , and you need to email Paul Walters to be included in the list of Saturday attendees.
I've included this item in the "for everyone" bit just in case there might be any junior's parents who might be interested.
Junior Training Sessions
Training for the U11s has resumed on Saturday mornings. We are constrained by EA guidelines as to the permissible number of athletes per coach and so will each week be asking who wishes to attend so that we can manage the numbers.
Senior Training Sessions
You can see the participants of the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday coached sessions here. There are now more than 12 participants on each list, and going forward the numbers for each group will rely on participants occasional reasons for being an absentee from the group (such as holiday or injury) to limit the groups to 12 people per session. If you know that you can't make a particular session please try to let us know so that your place can be reallocated.
Senior 1000m Time Trial
The training sessions for the week commencing 25th August will be given over to a 1000m time trial. If you are not participating in any of the training sessions that week you are free to submit your fastest self-timed 1000m of the week. There will be a further reminder about this nearer the time.
London Marathon 2020
You will no doubt have seen the news that the London Marathon will be for elite and wheelchair athletes this year and will be run on an enclosed looped course in St James’s Park in a "secure biosphere".
