LERC 5 - 2016 marshalling positions

Post by KarenL » Wed Sep 07, 2016 12:22 pm

We have the beginnings of a plan!

We are looking for marshalls to meet near the finish area at the side of the leisure centre, where there will be a box of hi-viz vests and we can clarify positions if anyone is uncertain where exactly they will be. Stephane Catelain will be in charge of marshalls. Ian Chant helping to set up the course and oversee inside the park, Rob Fox out on the roads.

Marshalls inside the park to be in post for the fun run too, starting at 9.20am. Please see Phil Abbott by 9.10 for details on this race.

If people can let me have mobile numbers in case we need them on the day, that would be very helpful - either message on here or Facebook or let me know at club on Thursday night.
