Hi all – details of news and runs below.
Congratulations to everyone who tackled the long, hard races last weekend – including the 40-mile Dukeries, Hathersage Hurtle and the Leaden Boot.
Trent 5: Well done to everyone who volunteered or ran at the Trent 5 last night; what a great night and massive kudos to the Club! It was lovely to see so many people having a good time. Many thanks also to Kim and team at the Vic for the lovely food after! Results already available here.
A few volunteers are still needed for the Summer League 3 on Wednesday, 15th June. Thanks again to those who have already offered to marshal at Wollaton Park. If you aren’t on Facebook please email me and I will pass on your name.

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 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 great evening – to be recommended.
