Summer League 3 with Beeston AC


Hi all – details of news and runs below.


Summer League 3 on 15th June: Thank you very much to everyone who has volunteered to marshal, this is much appreciated. The race will take place at Wollaton Park, 7.15 pm start. Payment for the car park is by RingGo app, please do not park on adjacent roads. Please can marshals report to Sophie Eadsforth in front of the Hall at 6.15 pm (at the bottom of the hill). Map attached.


There is no water at the race finish, please bring your own if you need it. The start will be wide (in front of the Hall), and the course will go through the woods behind the lake so watch out for tree roots. Toilet facilities will be available in the courtyard.


Kim is very kindly reserving an area in the marquee at the Vic, Dovecote Lane, for our use after and there will be hot dogs!

Message from Holme Pierrepont RC: “HPRC Track Champs are finally back this year! They'll be held on Wednesday 20th July 7-9 pm at Bingham [NG13 8BL]. Same time and basic format as previous years, slight shuffle in the order of events but otherwise same low-key friendly atmosphere. Officials in place so will go on PO10 etc for those who are keen! Seniors & masters only please. Order of events this year is 800m, 200m, 1500m, 400m, 3000m.

Entries are now open, so please spread the word amongst the Beeston bunch! Feel free to collate entries at your end and submit in one go, or if easier just get people to email me [James] directly to with their: Name; event(s); 2021/2022 PB or predicted time(s).

Entries close 12th July. As with previous years, first dibs go to HP athletes but no 'limit' to how many from Beeston would like to enter and of course athletes can enter as many events as they like (oh yeh and obviously it's free!).”


Some of us went a few years back and it was a very enjoyable evening, well worth going if you want to try track or go for a PB.
