London marathon 2018 volunteers

The volunteers list for the 2018 London marathon will open at 8pm at the mince pie evening, names can only go on the list when I arrive with the list.

To become a volunteer
1) You must attend on the evening, however you can email to become a volunteer but you will go on the list behind everyone that attended on the evening.
2) You must be a current member and because of heavy demand from within the club to help, we are unable to accept help at the moment from family members who are not club members.



parkrun Results

Hi Team,

The Committee has decided to discontinue listing parkrun
results in the 'results' section of the BFR site - As of today.

The main basis being that parkrun is not run in the spirit
of a 'race', but rather an all-inclusive 'run' (Notice that you get finisher
tokens, not placings). This coupled with the fact that we cannot award PBs and
star ratings, and that administration is very heavy for these results
(Alongside all the other results we enter), we have taken this decision

parkrun offer a personalised / by week / by club breakdown
of results which far exceeds either the capability of our current site, and
potentially of any future sites, listing performance, personal bests and many
other lovely tidbits of information

We actively encourage people to still parkrun - working your
way towards totals of races or better times (Or just for fun - that's why we do

Thanks, Mike & Your Committee

(A reference to this on our website will be included in the
club newsletter this week)

Friday 8th December

Tonight's club group run will be at 6pm from the main sports centre car park for 60 minutes at an easy paced 9mm for anyone that wishes to join the fun ????
