Fox Hollies Open Days Print

The Centre is having an open weekend 11th/12th May and have asked if Sparkhill Harriers would like to be present on either day, to show the athletics club to the public and recruit/generate more members and interest? It seems like a good opportunity to promote our club: is anyone willing and able to attend either/both days (in whole or in part)?
The hours are:

Sat 11 May 8am to 4pm

Sun 12 May 8am to 5pm

There will be representatives from the various clubs, teams, activities that use the centre to try to increase participation among the local community. Rob would like to know who in the club is willing to attend over the open weekend and be available to hand out leaflets and speak to any members of the public who are interested in running/joining (the more people able to attend together with times/day available will enable me to put together a timetable for each individual to provide best coverage)

Rob also suggested the possibility of running a taster session on the Sunday morning. Would anyone be interested in joining in ?

Please let Rob or any other committee member know ASAP

 
Vets road relays Print

Hi,

the national vets road relays take place in Sutton Park on Saturday 18th May. Each leg is 3 miles and the following age categories are being run:

W35+ (4 legs)

W45+ (3)

W55+(3)

W65+(3)

M45+(6)

M55+(4)

M65+(3)

M75+(3)

I need to know those who are definitely interested in taking part - this is so we save the club paying entry fees for categories that we do not fill - I will make up teams from those who express an interest to run. Start times are 11am for the ladies and M65, M75 and 1pm for the rest. Entries are required by the end of next week so a quick reply appreciated,

regards,

Darren

Great News - Track Print
At a recent meeting with members of Birmingham Council, Foxhollies Leisure Centre, Ninestiles School and the Birmingham Athletics Network it was confirmed that the Sport England funding bid to refurbish the track and jumping areas at Foxhollies has been successful.
 
It is planned that work will commence in the forthcoming Summer school holidays to minimise disruption and facilitate easier access to the site.  Alternative arrangements for club sessions are being arranged for the period that the track is unavailable.
 
It is anticipated that the Council will be making a public announcement in the near future.
 
Well done to all Sparkhill Harriers who have supported this bid and contributed to this success.

Big thank you Print
Dear all,

a big thank you to the runners on Saturday at Coundon Park and indeed to everyone who has turned out at some point in the season - blink and the season's gone! Overall, Sparkhill finished a respectable 4th in the league (5th on Saturday) and every performance no matter where you have finished is appreciated and keeps the spirit of the club in the Birmingham League alive and kicking. Once again our support did us proud which was again very welcome.

For those of you over a certain age, I will be e-mailling out a list of fixtures both road relays and on the track for the various vets events that are coming up when the weather warms up a bit.

For everyone else - some hard consistent training over the summer ready for that first fixture in November when it all starts again, you know who your rivals have been throughout the season so get working to beat them next season.

Well done everyone - runners, officials and supporters - you know who you are!!

Regards,

Darren
