2nd 5km handicap event

For everyone turning up for the handicap 5km tomorrow evening please ensure you have registered a time and be at the lookout in good time to ensure you can collect your number.
The event will start at 7pm so if you have collected your number by 6:45 this would be very helpful.
Numbers can be collected from under the umbrellas by the left hand side of the lookout.

Many thanks
Jon

Ride London Volunteers Required 30th July 2017

Hi Folks, on behalf of BFR Chris Vaal will once again be coordinating a team of volunteers to run a water station at the Ride London 100 on July 30th. We will be situated on the village green at Wescott near Dorking, about 68 miles into the ride.

We leave the Leisure Centre at 6.30 am and would expect to be back around 5.00pm (although it could be a bit later depending on whether the ride is disrupted for any reason)

Those that have done it before have really enjoyed the day. If you are interested in helping please email secretary@bracknell-forest-runners.org.uk and I'll pass your name to chris

TVXC 2017/18 season

Apologies for the delay in updating you all but myself and Nigel attended a meeting with the other clubs in the Thames Valley Cross Country League at the end of April - see below main points discussed that reflect changes to last season:

* Fixtures - The start of the league will be brought forward this season with two races a month for October 17, November 17, December 17, January 17, this is too try and avoid fixture congestion and inteferring with spring marathon training - we hope to have confirmed fixture dates to publish by the end of August.

* We discussed earlier start times for races but it was agreed that given the amount of time it takes in the morning to set up an event and the distance travelled by some clubs that the league will continue with the 11am start time for all races next season

* Headphones (including bone conductors) will be banned from ALL TVXC fixtures, any runner found to be using headphones of any kind during a race will be disqualified

* Race fees have been increased to £3 per race for affilliated club members and £4 for guests (this does not make a difference to BFR members as the club pays your entry fees)

* Car sharing - most venues struggle with capacity for car parking so all clubs have agered that a car sharing programme will be used for every race with a designated meeting point for members to meet andcar share - this is to be organised by each club

* All clubs that host fixtures are confident that they can put their fixtures on next season - the plan is for the following clubs to host each month Oct 17 - TVT and Metros, Nov 17 - Datchet and Sandhurst, Dec 17 Handy Cross and Reading, Jan 18 Bracknell And Tadley

If anyone has an questions about the TVXC league please feel free to drop me an email secretary@bracknell-forest-runners.org.uk

Excited to get muddy with you all again this season

Monday Night Run - Issue with parking (05/06)

There looks likely to be an event on at the track tonight so parking maybe limited at trackside. You will probably have to park on the other side car park tonight, so I will advise the sports centre we will be doing this to prevent any issues.
We will be meeting at the track as per normal for the start as in agreement with the sports centre manager, who now knows why we will be parking on the other side tonight

Thanks, Jon
