FULL JOINING INSTRUCTIONS, INCLUDING CHIP AND NUMBER COLLECTION ON THE DAY, WILL BE EMAILED OUT TO COMPETITORS ON FRIDAY 3 JULY 2015.
NOTE TO 10K MARSHALLS
Thank you for volunteering to help out at the Club's 10K on Sunday 5th July.
There will be an initial list of Volunteers and their roles and locations
on the Club Notice Board tonight (24/06). This will tell you where you
are expected to be on the day (5th July). Can you please be at your location by 10:30 am.
If there are more than 1 of you at a particular location, can one of you come to the
Village Hall in Blackmore before you go to your location, and pick up marshall bibs
for you and your colleagues. This would be very useful. Alternatively, if you cannot
get to the Village Hall, please contact Alison directly and let her know you are in place
Alison will be cycling around the 10K route (just before 10:30), and will deliver your bibs to you.
As ever, we could do with all the help we can get on the day, so please get in touch if
you will be in a position to help, and have not already volunteered.
A new Beginners' Group will start on Wednesday July 8th.
Please use the Contacts tab (above right) to contact Keith Gould for further details
