I hope you are all keeping safe and well in these hard times - seems so long ago that we were all able to run together but rest assured those days will come again!!!
I thought now would be a good time to let you know about something that has been happening behind the scenes ……..
A few months ago the club formed a new Running Forum to support the members and the committee and it was my pleasure to be asked to Chair the forum (for those who don’t know me I am the one that sometimes comes along and shouts at you on a Wednesday whilst Colin is away).
The other members of the forum are -
Lindsey Shields Waters
And what an awesome team they are …..
One of the first things decided by the forum was our primary purpose and with that our agreed mission statement is -
WE EXIST TO SUPPORT AND FACILITATE ALL MEMBERS WITH THEIR RUNNING GOALS REGARDLESS OF WHAT THEY MAY BE!
This is very much to back up the ethos of the club - open and inclusive.
Over the past few months the forum has been working really hard to pull together a summary of all of the opportunities that the club can provide to ALL of the members - we are keen that all members have the platform to follow their running goals over the various types of running such as road, trail, x-country, chatty running, social running etc etc.
We were getting close to finalising all of this before lockdown hit us and now for obvious reasons some of the events that we might have linked into as a club have all now been postponed / will be rearranged at a future date.
There will therefore be much more on all of this in due course with loads planned for the website - all of this will follow when the time is right.
When we are in a position to get back together again the first few weeks of running will be all about just being together - no pressure, no PBs - just catching up with your running pals and finding your running mojo!
We got news...! In the season where she made her international debut, the awesome
Ana Richardson has been ranked FOURTH in the UK 2019/20 Cross Country Rankings in the F50 category.

Our first Zoom Wednesday WERRtual session.
We had around 50 people doing Colin's fantastic session 😊😂🙌
Best background: Ruth Stocks.
Highest jump: Emma Wright.
Best use of WERRtual technology: Luc (in France) and James (in England).
Lovely to see the WERRs and their families😢

Hope it made you smile
