King of the Hill Marshals required

CTC King of the Hill is less than a month away, and to safely run the event we need 70 marshals. We currently have less than half that registered.

There are not many requirements to be a club member, but one thing that we do ask is to marshal at our races. If we do not get enough marshals to safely run the race we will have to cancel the event.

We are asking people to register as soon as possible, as we need to prepare the marshal plan, and send it out in advance of the race.

The budget for the race is not as big as a middle distance race, but we do our best to take care of the marshals. There will be a coffee & refreshments voucher provided for after the race, and there are plans for a drink voucher at a pub that night.

Do spread the work, bring your friends, many hands make light work.

Track Session Wednesday 21st June

Summer Solstice Session at the track tomorrow evening.  So for any of you who need to get a way early to light bonfires on the local hill tops, reducing slightly the volume of the session.  There is always a “but” with a session like this and there is with this one, looking for an increase in intensity over a set of 400s.  So the main set will be 10 x 400m divided into 2 blocks of 5.  Everybody should be looking for at least a 2 second improvement over their first 400m session this year.  There should be enough recovery time between this session and anyone doing Hell of the West on Saturday, if in doubt cut the session to 8 x 400m.

Session

Easy warm up jog

Dynamic stretch

6 x strides

2 x (5 x 400m) 200m easy recovery jog between with 400m between the 2 blocks

Easy cool down

Race Marshals Required

Your Club Needs You

As usual our club will run two races this year – 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. Registration has been open since early May, and there is currently a very low number of volunteers.

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.
