If you haven’t already done so you need to sign up to my running club…
You need a club code during sign up to tie you to SDRR which I can publish biblically so please ask for this. Sign up takes about 60 secs as it’s just name and email address required.
All club info like training schedules, important dates, social runs and marshal info amongst other things will no longer be published on our website but will be available through this medium. Essentially it’s like a private members area.
Once signed up to the website you will get a race calendar and a newsletter every week with everything you need to know included. You can then also download the app to get lots more features.
The app isn’t compulsory but does make things much easier and is free to you so if you have a smartphone then please download it (there’s no reason not to!). If not the initial sign up on the website will do as a minimum.. but it is important that you at least do this step as if you don’t you will not be aware of anything that is going on with the club. Also the club will be paying for the licences so don’t waste club funds by not signing up and getting the app!
It’s the prediction run this Wednesday at 7pm on the Ennstone trail near YHA at Moria. All runners to meet at 6:30pm at the YHA so we can register your prediction times. The YHA will not be open for refreshments after, but we can use the washrooms. We will be heading back to the Sir Nigel Gresley for drinks if anyone wishing to join us.
Course will be approx. 4 miles long with a few hills included and all on hardcore track surface.
Marshals to meet at 6:20pm, if you cannot attended for any reason, please contact Andy Orme.
There’s no training from Greenbank so if you know anyone who’s likely to turn up for training can you let them know thanks.
It’s a really warm welcome to William Hirst, Ross Ballinger, Ellie Dickson who have recently joined the Club as competing members. Charly March-Shawcross has also joined as second claim and Melanie Barker has rejoined as a competing member. We sincerely hope you all enjoy your time with the Club!
Morning guys. Given the football result, club night this week will be scaled back. Nikki will be leading a group out to do a Steady run. The usual gather ups etc will happen so all ability will still be welcome.
A final reminder that club fees were due the end of March. If you wish to remain a member of the club please ensure your fees are paid promptly. Any queries regarding payment methods please contact a member of the committee.
It’s a really warm welcome to Shane Stanton, James Farmer, Ralph Huthmacher, Barry Ross and Tim Rhodes who have recently joined the Club as competing members. We sincerely hope you all enjoy your time with the Club.
It’s a really warm welcome to John Pegg, Jacob Betteridge and Gavin Horton who have joined the Club this week as competing members. Also the walking group are growing in numbers as they are joined by Paul and Lorraine Clarke. We sincerely hope you all enjoy your time with the Club.
Just to confirm that Mick Kelsall’s funeral will take place at Bretby Crematorium on 19th March 2018 at 14:15 then after at Keepers Cottage.
Hi all. I have this evening received the following news. Sadly I must report that Michael Kelsall passed away in hospital this weekend. I know little detail except that it was pneumonia. Michael was a long standing member of Burton Athletics Club, to whom word is being circulated, but he also was known by members of other local clubs. Lately he ran the Rosliston park run regularly. Many of the older club members will have known him well.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends
Following the AGM, membership subs are now due before the end of March. For competing members this will be £25, for non-competing members, 2nd claim competing members and Walkers this will be £10. It will be most efficient if this can be paid by bacs as it saves journeys back and forth to the bank. If you already have the bank details then arrange at your leisure. If not then message me and I’ll forward them on. When you pay, please in your reference indicate what your payment is for… particularly if you pay for multiple people.
