3. Message from Maryke Fox and Robin Bacon re Wrekin Relay: THE DEADLINE FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST IS THIS SUNDAY 7 APRIL


A few people mentioned at the Christmas Party that they'd be interested in taking part in the Wrekin Relay in Shropshire on 13th July. The plan would be to run the race on Saturday then repair to the Youth Hostel at Bridges near the Long Mynd and go out on the town in Shrewsbury on Saturday night. On Sunday we'll go for a walk on the Long Mynd, weather permitting. The race itself is a trail race comprising three laps each of 3.6 miles with 182m ascent.  You can do it as a relay in teams of three or you can do three laps solo. Entries are now open but we need to enter as teams (cost is £30 per team and Chris will organise this after 7 April with Maryke booking the hostel).  


Accommodation will be in dorms or shared rooms at a cost of ~£23pppn, a cooked breakfast is £6.  Please could you let me have your name if you wish to take part by 7 April or put a note on Facebook , as the race does sell out and we will need to book accommodation sooner rather than later.


4. Good luck: to everyone racing and running this coming weekend in particular at the Manchester Marathon and the Kiev Half Marathon! We would love to track our Manchester runners – do put up your numbers etc on Facebook.
