Handicap Update #4

The handicap times for the second Handicap race on Thursday 27th April 2017 should be available Monday evening, they will be found from the link on the Handicap page of the Harriers. They will take into account Harriers runners times from Lydney Parkrun on Saturday 22nd, but not the Harriers runners times from the London Marathon on Sunday 23rd😉.

So far I've received offers of help from the following, along with the jobs I've allocated them, if I'm mistaken, please let me know.

Geoff Cram - results & start
Syd - start & finish
Dick - start & finish
Barry - timing keypad
Andy Creber - parking
Gareth - course marking

HELP - I still need two bakers, each to bake around 25 small pieces of cake. Let me know if you can help.

Please arrive early to pick up your Handicap race number.

Share cars were ever possible to help with parking, as space will be limited. There is some parking just off the road to The Cot, and at Fedw Woods. We will be double parking cars, so if you can't stay until the end of the evening, please don't park in the car park, or at least speak to the person doing the parking duties.

This races SPOT PRIZE will be awarded to the runner who wears the silliest socks(on their feet), as judged by me.

Hope to see you all there.

The Handicapper.

The Week Ahead 17 April 2017

 Tuesday on our track, and take your partner for a Paarlauf.

We're at Brockweir/Hewelsfield on Thursday for an away run on part of the Offa's Orror course. If you haven't booked your post-run food & drink, do so now on this website's Bulletin Board or on the Harriers' Facebook page. If Mackenzie Hall car park is full, you'll find space at the village shop just up the road where we'll do the eating & drinking. Either way the run starts at the Hall at 7.

On Saturday you can run the legendary Cribyn, the next in the Club's Fell Race Series. Details on the website Competitions page.

And finally, it's the actual Offa's Orror on Sunday. If you'd not helping or running, you might well be up Lunnon running or watching the Marathon. Whichever, have a good time 😀😃
