SUMMER BREAK 2018

This year we are going old school and having a shorter break rather than our usual longer break. So listen up here are the details:-

Wednesday sessions
 
Wednesday 27th June will be our last training session before our 2 week summer break. 

The Wednesday night training will resume on Wednesday 18th July at 6:30pm
 
Saturday sessions
 
Mark will start the Saturday sessions again on Saturday 14th July at 10:00am .
 
A well deserved break for the young athletes, parents and coaches.  For everyone who is going on holiday please enjoy yourselves and come back injury free (that includes the coaches!) 

We look forward to seeing you all then and I hope you all enjoy your summer break.

FINAL CALL....TRAIL RACE SUPPORT 2018

The schools finish on Thursday 28th June this week and our annual club trail race is on Friday 29th June with first event starting at 6pm.

So as a club we need your young athlete and parent support............

 
Trail Race Entries
All the juniors who want to do the race can get an entry form on training night, fill it in, hand it in and you get to do the race for FREE.  There is official individual race prizes, age group and Team prizes.  Also the junior section have their own additional prizes to celebrate Harrier success in the event. Last chance....closing date for FREE entry is Wednesday 27th June at training.
 
Junior Buffet @ Trail Race
For the last 5 years we have put on a junior buffet for all the runners who do the 1k & 3k and due to the support from parents & coaches over this period it has been a great success. However due a change in food legislation we reluctantly took the decision not do a junior buffet.

Trail Race Volunteers
The Trail Race Director Jim Mearns is looking for volunteers to help on the day.  If you are free please go the senior blog through this link to get Jim's mobile number to call him to offer any help you can give.
