Fancy some fast road racing??? MTC has affiliated to Northern Athletics. This has a number of benefits including being able to enter local cross country leagues and compete for team prizes at events such as the Wilmslow Half Marathon.
Another benefit is that we can enter teams in the Northern Men's 12 stage & Women's 6 stage road relays to be held on Sunday 5th April at Woodbank Park, Stockport: Mens:
11.30 am start , 12 per team with
Stages 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11 approximately 4.25 miles
Stages 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 approximately 2.4 milesWomens
: 11.35am start, 6 per team with
Stages of approximately 2.4 Miles each
Minimum age: 17years and over at midnight 31st August / 1st September 2008
We can enter as many teams as we like but you need to be affiliated with UK athletics. (Clubs that knowingly run ineligible or unregistered runners will be disqualified and may have their entry refused for the 2010 event).
We can name up to 38 men and 18 women per team.
Cost per team: men £50, women £30, this cost will need to be covered by team members so about £5 each (prob pay on the day).
Club colours/running vests need to be worn so anyone wanting to take part will need to beg, steal, borrow or buy one from Sweatshop in Hyde.
We can enter as many teams as we like with 1 team each being classified as our 'A' team and if they finish in the top 25 they will qualify for the 2009 ERRA Championships.
Closing date for entries is next Friday 20 March 09
so I would like to have an idea of interest (note it is the same date as the 4th club duathlon) ASAP. Teams will need to be decided by Thu 19 March. If you want to take part either preferably reply to this post or email me at email@example.com
. I will keep the list updated. Men pls indicate if you prefer the 4m or 2m distance.
I was actaully hoping to do the duathlon myself, so if we do get the interest and team/s could we have a volunteer to be captian for the day???
