Update and timing 15 May 16

Hi everyone. We’re up to 164 runners entered now, but with just 33 UK Athletics running club runners. So if you’re a club runner looking for a challenging event, come on and enter. There’s £75 in cash each for the first man and first lady runners.
Now, a quick bit about timing. I’ve investigated chip timing and the cheapest quote is £750 plus VAT. I simply can’t afford that as a charity race. So we’ll be doing the timing as we’ve always done it, manually. I’ll look into chip timing for next year, but it will mean prices going up. So do let me know on the day if you would prefer a lower price and manual timing or a higher price and chip timing. Either way, I’ll try and make sure you still get all the goodies – T-shirt for before the day entries, medals, watercress etc.

Fun Run Entries

The children’s races, 500m and 1000m around Arlebury Park, and the 5k fun run around part of the 10k route, are organised by the PTA from Sun Hill Junior School and not by us here at the Rotary Club. You can get entry forms for the races from Sun Hill Junior School but, in reality, there is always plenty of capacity for entries on the day. Registration on the day opens at 0830 and the 500m race starts at 0930. Registration is always busy, so do please plan to turn up in plenty of time as we have to close registration at about 0915 to make sure we’ve got everyone’s names and numbers written down correctly.
