Updated 11 April 2007
THANK YOU to everyone who has volunteered so far to help on Saturday (14th). Here, hopefully, are the final instructions.
Anyone else available to help, please contact me, we can find a place for you!
Anyone on the Section 3 or Section 4 that is available to come early to help set out the course, please contact Simon Vallance or Ian Place (phone numbers below).
Maps of the route are on the website, identifying all the point numbers on the map.
All marshals should report to their team leader as shown below. You will be given a yellow bib, told where to stand and which direction to point (good idea!) and given two or three key phone numbers in the event of incidents. Ideally please 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 £1,200 for Lineham Farm.
HERE ARE YOUR CONTACT PHONE NUMBERS FOR THE DAY, ideally print this whole email but, as a minimum, copy down these numbers plus that of your team leader.
Section leaders and/or marshals within the section at half mile intervals should make contact with Alan
As runners pass,
If, for any reason, you are unable to marshal, then up till Friday, please contact me by email or on 07775-898-558. But if you are indisposed on Saturday contact Alan Hutchinson 07899-062-718
