Help request Hangover 10k New Year

27/12/2016 16:52:47

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

IMPORTANT UPDATE RE LONDON MARATHON DRAW FROM JIM

05/12/2016 21:04:50

If you want to be included in this year's draw for the club's three places in the 2017 London Marathon, read on.
Jim's spreadsheet shows who he has in the draw so far.
You have until midnight on Tuesday 6 December to let him know if you want to be considered. Remember, to be included in the draw you must:
- have been a member of the club for over a year (have paid one renewal)
- have current membership of England Athletics (i.e. paid the extra £13 when you renewed your club membership)
- have been rejected from the VMLM 2017 ballot in October, and have proof of that rejection (your email, or the letter that came with your magazine).
Those people who are on the 'status not known' list will be treated as though they have run London before and only be entered into the second and third place draws.
