Cheerio

Hi everyone I've not been around much the last few months thanks to injury and then a busy work schedule, so it will be no loss whatsoever to the club that I'm off! After 15 years in Nottingham, I'm heading back to Greater Manchester on Friday. We're looking forward to the move, but I'll certainly m...

Re: More Winter league races coming up!

There was a prize giving where Rob had his pic taken receiving the cash for 1st M50, then when it was all over, the guy came over and said, without fanfare, "I'll need that back." We just looked at him and he repeated himself and eventually explained that there'd been an error and the prize should'v...

Re: Forefoot Running

I have a background in sprinting and when I was younger, the majority of my running was on a track in spikes. There's no real choice but to be a forefoot striker in those circumstances. Since I took up distance running a couple of years ago, I realised that what felt natural to me was forefoot strik...

Re: More Winter league races coming up!

And I'm now going to revoke Rob's prize in a slightly odd manner.

Re: Proposed new club rules

I think the rules of competition state that any wearing of England/GB shorts with club vest is a crime against fashion and are therefore outlawed :lol:

Re: Proposed new club rules

Just to add to this - the UKA rules apper to require clubs to register their kit, but custom and practice dictates that as long as the vest/shirt that athletes wear in team competition is of the same colours and roughly equivalent design, they don't bother with any of the other aspects of the rule. ...

Re: Wilne 10k help needed

Reason for my SHM listing - entered online and I had to put my EA number in. It then auto-filled my club and wouldn't let me change it!

Re: So long, farewell...

Speaking as someone who's just acted as consultation manager for England Athletics, during which I became even more familiar with the rules around registration and affiliation than I already was, resigning from Long Eaton and then joining Glossop 4-6 weeks later is not how the system works. You need...

Re: Notts AAA RRL 4 - Teversal Grange, 14 Aug.

Results now up on the Notts AAA website. Having laboured under the impression that I was ineligible to score in this league, I now wish I'd done more of them. Looking at the results from the whole series, we won 3 of the races and Notts only beat us to the title courtesy of a superb showing in the f...

Re: Another site.....

I remember seeing this site when I first looked into joining the club. What I don't understand is why this guy is even bothering. There's no advertising, it probably gets minimal traffic and there just doesn't seem to be anything whatsoever in it for him. What's his point?
