If anyone is interested, they can get in touch with Susan Urwin direct.

From: Susan Urwin < This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it >

My name is Susan Urwin and I'm the office manager for a small charity called ICP Support, based in Mere Green, Birmingham. We are involved in investigating liver disease in pregnancy and are committed to supporting those women who suffer from it (5,500 in the UK each year), along with their families.

We were lucky enough to book some places for the Birmingham International Marathon 2017 on 15th October, but unfortunately some of our runners have had to withdraw unexpectedly - I wondered if any of your runners would like to join us? You can see our official entry at:, and for further information our website is at

Please let me know if you or your members have any questions, and I would be very happy to send our leaflets or a poster to you if they would be useful?

With best regards,

Susan Urwin

Club Training Weekend 12th - 15th October Print

It is less than 3 months to the club’s annual training weekend in Wales. In recent years the
numbers attending have been reducing and we are looking to seeing some new people
this year.

It is a golden opportunity to do some really good training in the hills and beaches of Wales
and is excellent preparation for the cross country season.

Accommodation is in a 2 star hotel in Llanbedr near Harlech. Costs are very reasonable at
£185 (as at last year) for 3 nights bed, breakfast and evening meal plus a lunch on the
Sunday before we leave. We arrive at about 3.00pm on the Thursday and leave early
Sunday afternoon. If you have weekday commitments you can arrive on the Friday or
even the Saturday and you will only be charged pro rata.

We usually have up to 3 in a car to reduce travelling costs.

If you are interested in joining us, please get in touch with Bob Perrin, Gavin Kidman or
Jenny Price.

Level 1 officials course - T&F Print

Ray Morgan at WCAA writes >

I am pleased to say that we have some very local opportunities for your Club to get beginners onto the officials ladder. Please pass this information to your Club Officials Secretary if you have one. It would be a good idea to also pass the information to your team managers because at this time of year they have probably "press ganged" some unqualified parents or friends of athletes into helping out at events and hopefully they enjoyed it. They are ideal candidates to take the level 1 course.

To become "graded/qualified" the candidate has to take a course and do 4 meetings but meeting done already before the course can still count. Please reassure candidates that there is no exam so nothing stressful to put anybody off going.

There are courses at Nuneaton on the 14th June and the 28th June. I have attached a "flyer" for those for you to put on your Club noticeboard.

No officials means no competition so do your best to encourage as many newbies as possible to take the first grade.


Flyer can be found here .

Rob Mills is going to see if the club will cover the cost of the course. This page will be updated as soon as confirmation is available.

Grahame Cooper's Sponsored Rowing Event Print

Grahame Cooper hasn't been able to run with the club for a while but fortunately he has been able to continue his rowing in which he competes at a national level. 
Grahame is involved in a sponsored rowing event for charity next Sunday and has been in contact:
On Sunday May 21st, I am doing a 10K row as part of a 3 day rowing event at the Touchwood Shopping Centre in Solihull to raise funds for The Brain Tumour Charity.
Grahame has set up an on-line donations page here .

I am sure everyone at the club will join me in wishing Grahame all the best in this event and hope you will consider sponsoring him for this worthwhile cause.
