2017 CAU Inter Counties XC Marshal Help Print

The organisers of the inter counties are looking for help as described below. I know some of you have done this before and as I recall it is quite rewarding. Contact Gavin or Barry if you can help.

 Gavin writes >>

 Attached are details of the Inter-Counties XC on 11 March 2017.

It is a bit further away this time, but it is a great opportunity to be present at a major cross country event.

Please let me know as soon as possible, if you can help out in any way.  You will note that travel expenses will be paid and food provided.

Two Castles Guaranteed Entries Print

The Two Castles race is usually oversubscribed but also part of the WRRL. To accommodate this they have decided that this year's race will be by ballot. However, club runners who ran last year are being offered guaranteed places. For Sparkhill Harriers, Andy Wadsworth and Tahir won't be using their places so they can be used by the club.

Apparently, these places need to be claimed by the end of January. If you would like one of these 2 places then please contact Barry as soon as possible.

For some time now, Patrick has been trying to organise a team social and as luck would have it a suitable opportunity has emerged. 

Many of you know Nick stringer and his daughter Emma who trains with the Juniors. Emma is multitalented and has the starring role in Centre Stage Theatre's production of 'The Sleeping Beauty' at the Shirley Centre. Patrick suggested that it would be nice to support Emma and enjoy some seasonal revelry. Here are the details from Nick:

Sparkhill social event open to all members.

Interested in pantomime and a meal out with fellow runners? Well, on
Saturday 21st January 2017 at 2:30 at the Shirley Community Centre,
there is a performance of Sleeping Beauty: Pantomime by Centre Stage -
staring Emma Stringer as Princess Aurora! - followed by drinks and a
meal at the Istanbul Restaurant (charcoal grill/ Mediterranean and
Turkish cuisine).

Pantomime costs £12 per ticket (£10 child, £40 family) and payment
for the tickets can be made on the door in cash or by cheque ("Shirley

The draw for this coveted place will be made following the Christmas X/C Handicap run on Sunday 18 December (TBC).
Anyone wishing to be put in for the draw should let me know (preferably by email asap). Note, the draw is open to all paid up members.
When the selected runner is known I will enter the required details via the club-entry portal and then he or she will have to complete the entry online and pay by Monday January 16th 2017.  Please be aware that the organisers will not accept late entries under any circumstances.
Good luck!
