Proposal for extra Club Night:

 The Committee reviewed a Proposal submitted by Chris Mason to provide another Club Night for the Club. All agreed this was an excellent idea and work to be carried out to submit a proposal for discussion at the next AGM.

Friday night 6-7pm was suggested as a lot of people already meet and run on that night.

Chris Mason to be asked to investigate an alternative venue (Old Gresley Hall) for this night other than Greenbank Leisure Centre.

The new night would not affect the current Wednesday night which would remain the same with the Friday night being a non-coached steady run session.

At this moment in time we will monitor this season’s Cross-Country races and make a decision for next year’s 2017 season.

 It was fully agreed to include the Derby 10 Mile race in next years Club Championship and drop the Worksop Half-Marathon.
