Subject: V S Update - Harewood update, Training next week (bibs & lasagne), Brass Monkey, Additional Results, London marathon
There are no major changes to the marshalling teams or schedule. Just three of four substitutions. If you’ve recently volunteered, THANK YOU!
I’ve just been to Harewood and we have a change
to the Car Parking arrangements. The bottom corner of the Showfield is
waterlogged (or will be by Sunday). Cars will still come in via the main
arch but then immediately turn right up a narrow tarmac path and enter the
Showfield by the gate nearest the Village Hall. NB we still want cars to
come in this way rather than via
But because of this I need two people to come early and direct traffic. These would either be runners or marshals on the final section of the route. Please let me know if you are available from 08:30.
The full list of marshals is http://valleystriders.org.uk/harewoodmarshals2010.htm and will be updated if necessary - please print a copy if you’ve not already done so or at least take a note of your team leader’s number, the time you are due to meet, and Dan’s number.
The map of the marshalling positions is http://valleystriders.org.uk/photos/hwd10m_p.jpg The location of mile markers is http://valleystriders.org.uk/harewoodmilemarkers2010.htm
If you have trouble accessing these, let me know and I will email you.
Final request, does anyone have a full size keyboard with a USB connection? Having one of these will make keying of entries and results much quicker. Please let me know!
After the race,
Bibs, lasagne and training next week
Bibs are needed for evening sessions and lasagne is next Tuesday (5th)
Tuesday Training, 5 October
Thursday Training, 7 October
Training, Sunday 10 October
Calderdale Way Relay - Sunday 12 December
The website says “online entries only, so keep watching!”
I am, but if you see anything before me, let me know
Great North Run – from Joe Hanney
Thanks for the update. Ran the Great North Run as an unattached runner as I entered before joining the club (but I still ran in my VS vest!).
I finished in 59 minutes and 32 seconds! Oh no, that was that other feller. I was 1:45:22. Not a pb. Ged convinced me I was a faster runner than him – presumably so that I would carry the baton in the Leeds Country Way Relay, but then goes and beats me
Macclesfield Half – from Dave Gillian
Bob says “Dave ran 1:28:40 and Eric Green was 4th M50 in 1:31:51”
Great Langdale half – from Ken Kaiser
Paul Kaiser 13th overall (out of 300+) in 1.28.07(first half) Mega hilly .Just wait til he does a flat one!
Did anyone else (other than me) get a magazine through the post yesterday with a red cover saying “Commiserations”. And then describe other ways to get a place. If so, look for the next V S Update which will explain yet another way to get a place.
