4. Well done and thanks

A big thank you to Jane Lewis who, with help from Penny Page and others, organised the Club social event last Sunday. A special mention must go to Lucy Grant for an excellent cake!

 

There has also been some great racing in the past week, with some sterling performances at the Brassington fell race and the final Summer League race at Teversal – results to follow at http://www.nottsaaa.org/ in due course.

 

5. Bingham Track Session, Wednesday 15th August from Nottinghamshire Athletics Network

 

Information was circulated last week about an evening of track races to be held at Bingham Track on Wed 15th August. These races are aimed at encouraging road runners who compete in the Notts AAA Road Race League to have a go at running over accurately measured distances on a track. These races are NOT promoted for experienced track runners and entries from juniors are NOT encouraged. A maximum of 20 runners will be accepted in each race. Entries should be made by email and will be accepted on a first come first served basis.

 

If you would like to do this please email mwcdg_david@hotmail.co.uk ; a few of us went last year and had an enjoyable evening. The evening will end with a 4 x 400m relay event, which should be fun! Cost is £2 per race and entries on the night will only be allowed if there are spaces remaining.

Dick Sobey has forwarded on information from Notts AC about officials courses in September and this is attached, together with booking and contact details.
