(Note – a few important changes from last year)
Every Thursday the Short Run accommodates new members/beginners/improvers, members returning from injury and those who just fancy a shorter distance.
The distance will always be between three and four miles. I need 2 people every week to chaperone the group. The more volunteers there are, the greater the likelihood that you’ll only have to do one during the year. That was the case this year, with only about a dozen members picking up a second stint.
We have plenty of members to meet the above criteria, and it is a feature of our “Club Offer”, so please commit to putting your name down to do one. As mentioned , it is likely that you will only do one in the 12 month period, so it really isn’t too onerous.
For safety reasons we do have to have at least one male and one female rota volunteer each week. So, if you find that you can’t fulfil your rota slot, you must ensure you arrange a same gender replacement. Failure to do this means that the run cannot go ahead!
If there are any dates you would prefer (e.g school holidays, etc) or dates that you cannot do, just let me know.
Once I have rota’d your turn, please try as hard as you can to avoid having to rearrange, however if it is unavoidable, it is essential that you tell me, via email only, who you have swapped with, especially if you wish to be considered for the WRR London Marathon draw. Do not rely on any social media platforms.
Remember as well, that if you want to enter the draw for a Club London Marathon 2021 place, you must have done at least one stint on the Short Run Rota (along with other published requirements) during 2020, so if you have an inkling that you may fancy entering London, you need to get involved and put your name down.
Please respond no later than Saturday 30th November even if you aren’t able to help out.
