31/07/2018 Grimsthorpe 10k is Back !

Please share to all your members, thanks in advance

Lisa Richardson

Bourne Town Harriers

 

Hello Clubs/athletes

Could you please forward to all facebook pages/athletes via email or however you contact all your members - Grimsthorpe Castle10k/3k is back!

We have been steadily bringing this race back from the brink since Grimsthorpe Castle estate stopped having their family fun day with the 10k/3k attached. Each year, we aim to make it bigger and better, so little by little we are getting there.

The date for this year is Sun 16 Sep and we have new bespoke medals for the 10k! The start and finish is directly by the entrance to the house so a spectacular photo opportunity as you go through the line. Prizes for individuals and teams (4 men, 3 women to count).

If you’ve never done the course - it is picturesque, multi-terrain and has elements of elevation! Trail shoes are advised.

Entries are via www.entrycentral.com/grimsthorpe2018.  

3k race starts at 10.15am and family members have free entry to the estate from  10.30am only but it then for the whole day - so why not bring a picnic and enjoy what the estate has to offer www.grimsthorpe.co.uk - castle, park and gardens plus a tea room and shop.

10k race starts at 11am. 

The castle is situated on the A151 PE10 0LY - north east of Bourne, Lincolnshire.

 

29/07/2018 Guestimate - Updated Results

A couple of errors crept into the original posted Guestimate results, these are now corrected and updated.

28/07/2018 Heckington 10 - Eligibility

Unfortunately today's Heckington 10 wasn't.

 

I mean it wasn't 10 miles. It was about 150m short of the published distance becasue the race officials directed us off the track one lap too soon when we started. It seems they put in part of a lap at the end to try to make the distance up, but it was still short. Although 150m sounds a trivial amount after 10 miles, depending on your finish speed, it could be 20-50 seconds of running.

This means that, although the race had a license and the route was a measured 10m, the actual race today cannot be claimed as a Standard or be used as a Club Record. Of course, the club championships do not require a measured route, so all the points and positions are unaffected.

 

26/07/2018 Senior Championships

latest standings after the 5k now available

24/07/2018 Guestimate Results

14/07/2018 New Runners Rota Update

07/07/2018 Get Fit for the Eastern - Runners needed

Volunteers required

Get Fit for the Eastern Sessions start on 11th July and will be held fortnightly so on 25th July,  8thAugust,  22ndAugust,  5thSeptember,  19th September and 3rd   October.  GPAN would like runners from the local clubs to come along and take part in a 50 minute run (25 mins out and 25 mins back) on  route from the Athletics track.  You can run at whatever pace you like, please be prepared to say what pace you will run at. 

If there is anyone attending the sessions that wants to run at this pace they will run with you. 

There is no track alternative for volunteer club runners so there is no free Track session for club runners. 

Try the Track stops on Wednesday 20th June and restarts on 17th October. The Get Fit for the Eastern track sessions are being run for beginners. All lanes will be being used by the groups at the track so there is no facility for club runners to do their own thing.

07/07/2018 BRJ Invitational Social 10k

BRJ would like to invite members of all the Frostbite League clubs to a social 10K run on Tuesday 17th July.

 

The run is from the Three Jolly Butchers pub in Houghton/Wyton, in between Huntingdon and St Ives

3 Huntingdon Rd

Wyton

PE28 2AD

There is only limited car parking at the pub so car sharing is encouraged, there is space on the street nearby to park as well.

 

Start time is 7pm, the 10k route will go through St Ives and the Hemingfords before returning to Houghton.

 

BRJ members will accompany different pace groups to guide all around the route - all then welcome for a drink in the pub afterwards.

28/12/2017 Charity chosen for 2018

In 2018 WJ will be supporting No Gain No Pain (NGNPUK) who are a small local charity raising money for syringe drivers to be used in our local communities. 

A syringe driver is a small computerised machine that can be programmed to give patients a measured dose of pain relief and other drugs during palliative care.  The machines can help patients remain at home with loved ones instead of going into hospital or a hospice. 

 They cost £1100 each. NGNPUK have donated an extra 39 machines over the last two years and these have been in constant use since they were handed over.  One machine can help so many patients over its working lifetime. 

You can find out more about us at https://www.facebook.com/ngnpuk or https://ngnpuk.weebly.com/

16/11/2017 New Club Record

Congratulations to Gillian Holmes who set a new FV60 club record back at the Fenland 10 2016 but has just noticed :-)

 

04/11/2017 Annual General Meeting

The clubs next AGM, as previously advised, will be held on Tuesday 21st November at the Ploughman Public House, starting at 9pm

The committee have received one proposal for discussion which is as follows:

It is proposed that Werrington Joggers amend the wording and intention of its constitution to "welcome runners to the club who have an interest and commitment to running for enjoyment, fitness and social community; and are able to comfortably run 3 miles distance."

This would be a fundamental change in our constitution, currently we welcome anyone, regardless of their current ability and set no minimum standard, either in terms of distance or time a person can run comfortably for.

The Committee believes that such a change should be made by the members, not the committee, and therefore the committee has no colective view and committee members will express their own personal view at the AGM, should they wish to.

I therefore hope you will now make an extra effort to attend the AGM on 21st November. This is your club and its for you to decide the parameters in which the club is managed going forward.

If any one has any questions before the AGM please speak to me, I should remind members that your 2017/18 membership must be paid for you to attend the AGM and only full members (not social members) are entitled to speak or vote on any motion


Tim Cook, Chairman.
