Help to recruit older adults as research participants Print
Dear Sir or Madam,

My name is Maria-Christina Kosteli and I am a postgraduate researcher at
the School of Sport, Exercise & Rehabilitation Sciences in University of

As part of my PhD I am designing an intervention in order to promote
physical activity for older adults. My study is for a good purpose. I am
trying to help out people who are in retirement age to improve their quality
of life.

I would like your help in order to recruit older adults (between 55 and 70
years old) to attend a focus group to answer some questions about what they
think about physical activity. The session should last no longer than 1
hour. Participants will receive a £10 voucher for their participation and
they will be reimbursed for their travel expenses.

I have attached the information sheet and a recruitment flyer (see here ). I would
appreciate if you can advertise my study in the bulletin board and pass the
information to your members. This would be extremely helpful.

I just need about 24 participants that are about to retire or have already
retired. They do not necessary need to be physically active.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you so much!!

Club history - The first 100 years 1902-2002 Print

In 2002 the club celebrated its centenary and produced a book about the club's history compiled by Derek Heatherington. Remaining copies of this publication are now few and far between but we have a digital copy of one that can be viewed in PDF form. It is reasonably large (~32Mb) so I have  also split this up into smaller chunks.

Seniors' time trial results. Print

The results of the seniors time trials have now been added to the website. They can be found against the session on the training schedule or directly here.

Congratulations also to John Goulding and Hilary Mann who registered the biggest improvements over the last trial in what were less than ideal conditions for everyone. Well done.

No NIA indoor training this year. Print
With the upcoming indoor athletics at the NIA it is usual to open up the track to general use on certain dates before the event . It has become customary to arrange one of the February sessions on the NIA but that will not be possible this year. Due to renovation work at the NIA they are unable to offer any training sessions on the track. Hopefully, this will return to normal for the 2015 indoor athletics season.
