BFR Community Spirit Request

Good morning all

One of our members Gayle Nebbett has been in touch with the Foodbank in Bracknell and then asked if we can put a request out for some food donations.

Of course we can ! So here is that request.

On the week commencing 25th June Gayle and/or I will be at Monday and Wednesday Club meets, we would like to ask for any of the following donations to be dropped off to us:

These are their low stock requirements:

Tinned Veg. Tinned rice pudding. Tinned fruit. Long life sponge puddings. Toilet roll.

Super market vouchers.

Below is the link to the foobank and how it runs.

No donation is too small...one tin is a help...please can we try and show our Green Army support and being part of our Community and a chance to give something back for no effort at all.

Thanks in advance

Gary Farrell . VC.

 

 

Tonight’s parking

There is a track meet tonight so you are better off parking in the main car park but we will meet at the normal location for the run start which will be beside the track stand

Thanks

GET TO KNOW THE FOREST BETTER

As part of an initiative to get more people comfortable with leading runs in the Forest at the Lookout we are offering you all the opportunity to join a course walk of the Forest Five route on Tuesday 5th June leaving from the car park at the Lookout promptly at 6.30pm.

This is a WALK not a run with the idea being you will have the opportunity to look at your surrounding adn oreintate yourself around the Forest with a view to doing the same thing again int he future to help you to remeber where to go!

If you are running the FOrest Five it will also give you the opportunity to remoind yourself of the course in advance of the race.

If you'd like to join in please ensure that you are there by 6:20pm on Tuesday so no one gets left behind

Prudential Ride London 29th July 2018 – Request for Volunteers

The PRL takes place on Sunday July 29th and Bracknell Forest Runners have once again been asked to run the water station at Westcott, about 68 miles into the ride.

The team leaves Bracknell leisure Centre at 6.30am to be on site by about 7.45am. The last riders come through at about 2.15 pm and there is then a window of about 45 minutes for us to get away before the elite riders pass through the village. If there are any delays or the ride is stopped for any length of time we may have to wait until the elite riders have been through, which could delay our departure. We either get back at about 5.00pm or about 6.30pm.

We need about 14/15 people to share the load and Chris Vaal is co-ordinating the team – if you are interested in helping please e mail secretary@bracknell-forest-runners.org.uk or if you need further information please speak directly to Chris.
