Help request Hangover 10k New Year

27/12/2016

As many you will know, together with many of the other roles that I currently fill, I am also the race director for the Hangover 10k that takes place at 11am in Kewstoke from the Village Hall on New Year's Day.

This race has a limit of 250 but still needs quite an army of people to help put it on. Many people come and help every year but the problem is always getting people to confirm that they are coming so that I can get some sleep the nights before.

After this year Martin Hurcombe is going to take on the role of race director and James Wotton has offered to be my chief marshall chaser so if you want to avoid having them on your case it would be great if you could drop me an email at Jim Wotton confirming that you can help.

Thanks

Jim
