The 2017 edition of the MTR will take place on Saturday 9th September, and with just less than 5 weeks to go, this is a request for volunteers.
As with previous CAAC events, it is hoped that as many of our members as possible will actually run the race, but the positions noted below are the minimum required for the race to proceed safely, so I would ask you to consider adding your name to the list.
I'm sure you're all aware of the upcoming hill race I'm organising. Can you help with marshalling?
Sunday, 27th August, noon
Baddinsgill, near West Linton
For those few not keen to enter and run the race :-) it would be great if some would be prepared to help with organisation and marshalling. 4-5 marshals are need to head out on the hill to cover various checkpoints, and another possibly 4-5 are need to help with declarations at the start and timekeeping at the start/end.
Some club members will have heard me drone on about this particular run for a while now. It's a great run, it's always sunny, there are plenty of cafes after to get a nice cup of tea and a spot of lunch you might have heard me say. Well this year I entered my sixth and Mandy, Janet, Graham and Neill their first. My club mates seemed excited by the prospect of a nice sunny run on the beautiful beaches and coastal paths of Northumberland.
