Baddinsgill 2016 marshals needed

Baddinsgill Marshals needed

I'm sure you're all aware of the upcoming hill race I'm organising. Can you help with marshalling?
Sunday, 28th August, noon
Baddinsgill, near West Linton

For those few not keen to enter and run the race :-) it would be great if some would be prepared to help with organisation and marshalling. 4-5 marshals are need to head out on the hill to cover various checkpoints, and another possibly 4-5 are need to help with declarations at the start and timekeeping at the start/end.

Spring!? Handicap - NOW THURSDAY 30TH

Spring Handicap

Spring is sprung the grass is ris, I wonder where the handicap is?

So, the Spring handicap was supposed to take place sometime in, er...Spring!  April I think. The date seems to have been lost in the mists of time.  So here we are with the practically mid-summer handicap which will now take place on Tuesday 28th June at 7.30pm (pending sufficient uptake of entrants!)

london marathon 2016

Alan Cameron's words of wisdom "it is the greatest race you will have ever taken part in!" At first I was sceptical as sometimes he talks nonsense but truer words have never been spoken.

 From the moment we arrived and checked in to the hotel you could see runners going around with their club tops on, more runners going on the London bus tours and the Thames river tours - it all added to the excitement knowing that everyone was on a similar adventure that was going to culminate in a challenge of the marathon.
