Good luck also to everyone running the Worksop Half Marathon on Sunday.

Vote for Athlete of the Year: an email with the voting link and information about the 7 athletes nominated has been sent out today to all paid up first claim members. The closing date will be Sunday 8 November, Midnight. Please can you get in touch if you don't receive the email (the email addresses were from profiles in England Athletics which hopefully will be up to date).

Single Gravs handicap, Wednesday, 10th November 6.30 pm: this will be held prior to the AGM, which will be at The Marina. Dave Cross is the guest handicapper. If you would like to run or volunteer to be a marshal, please leave a message on the Facebook post or send me a message to pass on if you aren’t on Facebook. It will be in the dark so a head or chest torch would be a good idea.
