Next weekend, Saturday 10th October, brings with it the start of the new Cross Country season. Fixture one is also the sixth instalment of the club Grand Prix season - so a chance for you to earn points for both your club and yourself!
Many of you have already said you'll turn out for the club, including a number of new runners - this is great news! The club would strongly encourage all runners, of all abilities to come along to these fun events. Not only is it rather different to the usual road races, you'll be well supplied with tea and cakes too.
If you would like to run and haven't yet stated an interest, please do post up on the forum or Facebook and let the Captains know. Men's Captain is Moustafa Fawzy and Ladies' Captain is Ann Bath.
Details are as follows...
This is just a final reminder that the first order window for new kit is closing at the end of tomorrow, Friday 2nd October.
Full details can be found in the original email that was sent to members a few weeks ago. Lead time is around five to six weeks from the closing of the window, so if you order now you will have the new kit for all your winter racing and training.
If you are unable to order this time around, another order window will open in a few months.
If you are thinking of ordering a running top from the new kit supplier Champion Systems, then hopefully the following info will be of some use to you.
It's 'Titsey Trail 10K' time again, a scenic trail race organised by Oxted Runners through the glorious woodlands of the ancient Titsey Estate on Limpsfield Chart in Surrey, just up your street Howard Brinkworth and Peter Grecian!
This is a well organised, well marshalled, inexpensive event run by a very friendly running club. Does that remind you of another Club?
Since it's inception in 2009, 26.2 RRC have supported this event with Clock and Gantry, and such is the case this year. In doing so we receive TWO complimentary entries for the erection team. Coming as it does a week before the start of the Cross Country season, it is an excellant oportunity to tune up your Cross Country skills.
Please go onto the Oxted Runners site for full details and, if you haven't already entered, let me know, as soon as possible, if you can help out as I have to submit your names.
The new 26.2 RRC club kit has now been launched!
All details have been emailed to club members today, a copy of which can be found online and also in the Downloads section of the website. A sizing guide from the kit supplier can also be found online. Their sizing guide notes that 'the sizing on technical clothing sometimes come up on the small side, so please err on the side of caution if you are in between sizes'
Please note the first order window is open from today until Friday 2nd October. Further ordering windows will open in a few months.
If you have any queries please contact either the kit team on the usual email or the supplier themselves (details in the kit launch email).
REMINDER! Tonight is the last of our summer series of Monday night runs where we meet in Richmond Park rather than at Surbiton Racket and Fitness Club. As the park gates close to traffic at dusk (and potentially before we finish running), park on Ham Gate Avenue outside of the park and we will meet in the park by Ham Gate at 7pm, aiming to start the runs by 7:15pm. If anyone needs a lift to the park then post a message in the forum to check if anyone can provide transport.
A spreadsheet glitch on the night, no telephone, therefore no broadband, at home in the morning and confirmation on Friday that I had actually broken my leg on Tuesday, severely curtailed my ability to post the August Handicap Result on the website. I did, however, manage to get the up-to-date information onto the Club Notice Board for the Monday runners.
Of the 35 runners competing in the August Handicap, it was particularly pleasing to welcom back a number of members who hadn't participated for some time. Janneke Zoeteman last ran in Nov 2011, Alice Tozer (10/12), James Thurston (11/12), Jack Holland (09/14) and Ben Woods (11/14)
Howard Brinkworth had one of his better runs to finish 1st ahead of Alaistair McG.Williams and Peter Grecian. Times were generally more representative of peoples fitness compared with July's with eight achieving PBs.
With the nights drawing in now, (sunset 1946), you would be well advised to wear your high vis training tops on Wednesday. Pleased be prepared to help if you are not able to run. The August Race analysis is attached.
Next Wednesday’s speed session at the track will be a ‘straight’ 10x400m. The idea is to do a consistent, but fast, pace over each of the ten reps with a jog to recover in between each. This is core speed work to improve on, for example, your 5k and 10k times. Groups will run at different speeds to suit all standards.
Please arrive 7.15pm to do your initial warm up (eg two or three times jogging around the track), ready to start the formal warm-up promptly at 7.30pm. We meet at the Kingsmeadow track, Kingston Road. Entry is £3.40.
Let’s hope we get one of those balmy summer’s evenings of which we have not had so many this summer!
