Group 3 notice now may is upon us and we will all be complaining that it is too hot to run . We will be running off road ( fields , paths , tracks ) for the next few months . Please wear footwear to suit thank you(message will expire on Mon 10/Sep/2018).

The idea is to begin the knockout in June / early July . Ties can be completed at any parkrun but preference is for hynburn . In theory every member who enters will have an equal chance of winning . Can members who wish to be involved either put an announcement on here or add your name when this message is transferred to Facebook . Ideally we would require a minimum of32 so come on members give it a go(message will expire on Wed 30/May/2018).

5. Message posted by Liam Moden on Tue 01/May/2018.

As a club we are going to try to introduce a parkrun based 5k handicap knockout competition. The premise being each entrant is given a rating by graham . For example purposes only - graham 20.00 minutes Dave savage 22.00 Pam mccullagh 27.30 . So if Pam raced graham she would receive 7.30 mins . Pam v Dave Pam would receive 5.30 minutes . Dave v graham Dave would receive 2 mins ( please read next announcement )(message will expire on Wed 30/May/2018).

6. Message posted by Liam Moden on Tue 01/May/2018.
