Cracker 2018

12/11/2018

Listen-up Team Yellow. We need you. We need ALL of you.

Kim and Annette have been beavering away sorting out who will be doing what at this year’s Cracker.

The race takes place four weeks today, but we are 50 volunteers short - and our club is bigger than ever - with lots of people still needing to complete the volunteering survey.

So please, if you haven’t filled it in yet, please do it now.

Organising the race takes loads of pre-planning so it’s really helpful if we can allocate roles ASAP.

Thank you 🙏🏼🎅🏼

05/11/2018

Please extend a warm welcome to new club members Kevin Bale, Callum Smith, Graham Brooks, Stephanie Brooks and Julian Hanson.

Cracker volunteering survey

04/11/2018

Your club needs you.
If you haven’t done it yet, please fill in the Cracker volunteering survey so Kim and Annette know what duties you want to do on race day.

It’ll take no more than five minutes, so do it now.

Take the survey

And remember, as a Cracker volunteer, you get:

✅ to run the Not Cracker in fancy dress
✅ brekky @ The Bay café after the Not Cracker
✅ hot refreshments on race day
✅ race t-shirt.
