Call For Marshals 2017

This year our club will run two races –  King of the Hill (Jul 22nd) and The Lost Sheep (Sep 16th).  It is important that we secure an adequate numbers of marshals across all the races to ensure that we maintain our high standards.

It is requested that club members should marshal at least one club race.  Every year one of our main challenges of putting on these races is recruiting sufficient numbers of marshals.  If we do not secure an adequate number in advance of the race we will have no option but to cancel the event.  We are asking people to register for races as soon as possible in order to assist with planning.  As usual there will be goodies provided for all who register.  Invite your family and friends!

Remember, no race can take place without volunteers.  They are every bit as important as the competitors and, on the day, few contribute more to the atmosphere of the race.

Track Session Wednesday 17th May

Back up to repeat kilometers again this week, great session to get a feel for potential race pace.  The numbers this season have been great and the group running has been very encouraging with lots of people running very consistently across the session.  As usual at this time of year individuals have to make the call as to their preparation, if they are racing the following weekend or recovery, if they are coming off a race last weekend.  People need to ensure that they have an adequate warm up prior to the stretch and stride.  Meet at 7:00pm at the track in the UCC grounds on the Mardyke

Session

Easy 10 minute warm up jog

Dynamic Stretch

6 x Strides

Main Set

400m with 200m recovery jog.

4 x 1000m with 600m recovery

Easy cool down
