Subject: VS Update - West Yorkshire Cross Country entries
I’ve not replied individually to everyone who’s asked to run the XC, because even if I did, I might have forgotten to put them on the entry list (has happened before, I’m afraid)
So instead, here is what I think is the list so far – and there are 40 of you!!!!
We need to send the entries off next Thursday (18th), so names must be in to me by next Wednesday evening (17tH) if you want to run the first race. (if you’re not available for the first race, you have till 14 October to decide, but it will cost £7 whether you run one race or all four so you may as well enter now).
I will add new names on the website www.valleystriders.org.uk/vslists.htm - this will be the list we send off.
I would also be grateful if you would let me know whether you are available for some marshalling duties for the first race on 12th October. We are looking for fast women (who can run their race and then be in place for the men’s race) and fast men (who can watch the end of the ladies race and sprint to the start line of the mens race). No, we’re actually looking for anyone willing to stand and point the way and we’ll arrange that runners can get to their race in time. We are also looking for a couple of car park attendants and probably a couple of results runners. We also need 7 or 8 to come early on the Sunday morning to set up sections of the course – they will be excused marshalling duties in the afternoon. Please let me know!
NB normal VS Update service will resume at the weekend!
But in the meantime, 3 short reminders
- Pie and peas Tuesday 23 September, book whether meat or veg pie, beans or peas, apple pie optional at latest by Sunday 21 September (orders on www.valleystriders.org.uk/vslists.htm )
- Harewood Trail marshals required on 5 October, please let me know ASAP Thanks to everyone who has volunteered so far (names on www.valleystriders.org.uk/vslists.htm )
- Get your entry in for Horsforth 10k in the next few days before it fills up. There are more Abbeys than Valleys entered so far.
