Hi all – details of news and runs below.
Welcome to new members Ben Howard and Jessica Necchi: happy running with Beeston AC!
Call for volunteers for Summer League 3 on 15th June: Thank you very much to everyone who has already volunteered to marshal, this is much appreciated. Sophie Eadsforth, our Chief Marshal, is still looking for volunteers as we need a few more. If you are free to volunteer please respond to her Facebook post, and if you aren’t on Facebook please get in touch via this email address and I’ll pass on your details. If you are hoping to run is there a family member or friend who could help out?

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
