LATEST TROTTERS NEWS

Special Announcements

I received this sad news last night. Sadly Mick Quinlivan passed away Saturday morning. We are holding his funeral at Bentley Crematorium, Ongar Road, Brentwood at 2pm on Tuesday 9th September. There will be gathering at White Horse PH, Coxtie Green Road afterwards. We want to extend this invite to all his friends at TGT. I'm sorry passing this sad news on in such a way. If people wish to attend please can they let the club know so we have an idea of numbers. (you can contact me  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) We have decided that rather than flowers, if anyone wishes to make donations to Essex Air Ambulance that would be brilliant. Bennett's are dealing with the funeral arrangements and a link for donations will be on their website over the next few days. Best regards, Tina

Volunteering. The committee is aware we have a lot of members who volunteer for the club on a regular basis, but who may not want to run a marathon or cycle 100 miles. We have therefore decided to fund eight free places for next years BUPA 10000 for those volunteers. Contact Keith Thornton for more details.

The Essex Way Relay, Sunday September 7th 2014

We invite you to join us and run for the club in the annual Essex Way Relay. There are 10 legs, starting at Epping Tube Station at 8am, finishing at Harwich (82 miles later) at about 6:30pm. Legs vary in distance from about 5 miles up to about 12 miles (average about 7.5 miles). Each leg has its own start time, and you can choose a leg to fit in with your availability and fitness levels. You don't have to commit to the whole day - some runners follow the whole event, some turn up at their leg, run it, then go home. It's up to you. Arrangements will be made to get you back to your car (if you left it at the start of the leg). You can run with a friend, if you prefer.

Details are on http://www.essexway.org.uk/ for maps, route description etc.

Please note that on Weds next (13th) AFTER group runs, Nick, Steve, Jo and Alison will be at the Cafe/Bar to explain what it's all about, and to answer any questions.

I ran my first Essex Way in 1997. All I can say is that it's a truly great event, and a memorable day out. I totally recommend it to all runners. PP
