Runs with Beeston AC


Hi all – details of news and runs below.


Call for marshals! We need volunteers for a variety of different roles not only for the Trent 5 which takes place on Wednesday 25th May but also for Summer League 3 on Wednesday, 15th June. Sophie Eadsforth has kindly volunteered to be Chief Marshal for the Trent 5 and will put a call out on Facebook. Mark Rowlson as Race Director for SL3 will coordinate the volunteer team for that event. If you aren’t on Facebook please email me and I will pass on your name.
