Final Issue mark 2 : 2 October 23:00  (changes from previous version in red & bold red)

Subject: Harewood Marshals – we’ve just enough but if you come along we can definitely find you something to do!


Harewood Marshals List








THANK YOU to everyone who has volunteered so far to help this Sunday. I am pleased to see many of our newer members on the list many of whom ran the recce run. I am also pleased that most of the regular team leaders are on duty again. Some of us (i.e. including myself) are showing our age, so you younger Striders, watch what goes on and maybe take a bigger role next year!!!


All marshals should report to their team leader as shown below. You will be given a bright yellow bib, told which direction to point (good idea!) and given two or three key phone numbers in the event of incidents. Ideally please can you print an entry form from the website, then if anyone asks what is going on, the entry form explains a lot, you can also mention that this race is expected to raise over £3,000 for Lineham Farm and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.


HERE ARE YOUR CONTACT PHONE NUMBERS FOR THE DAY, ideally print the whole email but, as a minimum, copy down these numbers plus that of your team leader.


Marshalling problems – John Wallace 07855 809 762

Section leaders should make contact with the following section leader and with John as the first runner approaches their section.


Section leaders should also make John aware of when the last runner passes


As runners pass, please could marshals

- make sure runners they go the right way,

- monitor potential incidents

- phone 999 in case of medical emergency

- phone Harewood Estate and/or St John in case of medical problems

- cheer on the runners appropriately

- ensure no issues with walkers and riders (they have equal rights to use the paths) - please ask them to walk/ride on the LEFT

- tell walkers and riders what’s going on – 10th year, 800 runners, £3000 shared between Lineham Farm and Yorkshire Air Ambulance

After the last runner passes, marshals should collect any signs, tape etc in their vicinity and return it to their section leader, then either proceed to their next job or go home and take a well deserved rest (or run)


If, for any reason, you are unable to marshal, then up till Saturday, please contact me by email or on 07775-898-558. But if you are ill on Sunday contact your team leader on the mobile number below or John Wallace 07855 809 762

10 MILE RACE 10:35


The race start is the same as 2007/8 (but different from earlier years) – it is INSIDE the showfield directly opposite the 2 mile start and race finish.  It will now head along the edge of the showfield parallel to the road and exit the showfield near the Arch.  The race will cross the main access road to the house near the arch.  We will marshal in the showfield, the Estate staff will marshal the road (stopping the traffic).


There is a route change from last year. The route for 2009 will then go straight ahead through the gate and down the field, then turn left to where the old barns used to be, and turn right onto the permissive path.
