Midland vets 'road' relays Print

The closing date for the Midland vets road relays is nearly here, taking place at 11am on Sunday 13th April at Donisthorpe Woodland Park, DE12 7PX. This is a traffic free, 5K course (2 laps of 2.5 k per leg), 3/4 per team depending on the age group. The age groups are the usual 35-44, 45-54, 55-64, 65-74. We ran there a couple of years ago and it is a good course, largely hard grit paths including a short section along a canal tow-path (guaranteed no steep climbs!).

In order to enter teams I will need a quick reply please (closing date for entries is 5th April).

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!!
