New email system

I'm just testing a new bulk email system for the (approximately) weekly V S Updates.  You should be able to reply to this email, too, if need be.

This is a brief email (but has some important messages); full service will return to normal next week and I will have a collection of race results and race reports for you.

Harewood Trail Races - Sunday 8th November

Numbers of pre-entries are 353 entries for the 10 mile race, 94 for the 5 mile race and 92 for the 2 mile race.  We are accepting all entries on the day, but if we get more than 450 in the 10 mile, latecomers will be asked to run the 5.

I think we've all the marshals that we NEED but anyone else who comes on the day won't be turned away, as we can find positions for you on the route.

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to marshal.  Marshals should have had instructions on where and when to meet their section leader.  If you haven't received these, then please email the account

And if you aren't marshalling and want to run, then permission granted, it will be more money for our two charities, Lineham Farm and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Peco - final final call - names required by 8 November 16:00

Adults please email if you wish to be entered - click to check list of entries.

Junior session on 10 November / junior group closed to new members

We had an all-time record 75 juniors last week and it was difficult for the coaches to "manage" these numbers.

So we're looking for parents to support the coaches.  We have opportunities for runners and non-runners.  If you usually run in Kathy's group, we'll give you a job where you will do some running e.g. relay team captain.  If you normally watch the session we'll give you a stationary job e.g. time-keeping.  Please volunteer by replying to this email or on the night.

Until we're satisfied that we have sufficient support, we've closed the junior group to new members.  If you have already signed up as a temporary member but not yet paid, then that's fine (please pay ASAP), but please do not invite your friends to come, instead ask them to email the and we'll create a waiting list.

Food on 17 November - see website
