Meanwood Recce runs
 
Thanks to everyone who ran last week, I hope you enjoyed your run through the mud down the Trail.
 
We have another brief recce run this coming Tuesday, anyone interested in running the Junior Race route (1 mile), come along for 6:30 and we'll do this before going on to run the 3 by 10 minute session at Eccup Res
 
Meanwood Marshals
 
A full list of marshals, their positions and meeting times is at the end of this email.  Thanks to everyone who has volunteered so far.     (If you have volunteered and I've missed you off the list, please let me know!)  (If you're on my list and not available, also let me know!)
 
We still need about 6 more marshals.  This will give us contingency such that should an accident occur one person will be able to help the injured person while marshalling of the runners can continue
 
We also need 3 more to help lay out the course from 08:00 - this will be as assistant to one of the section leaders.  Help is needed
- 1 for Eric Cusack between the Ring Road and Seven Arches
- 2 for Paul Hunter / Julian Bhowmick / Mick Tinker / Eric Green to layout the area around Leos.
 
Marshals will be provided with
- yellow jackets
- a map  (quite small, bring glasses if necessary! or download your section from the website)
- information sheet to read and/or hand out to spectators
- phone numbers in case of emergency
- estimated time of arrival of first runner
Please bring your mobile phone (if you have one), also bring welly boots or walking boots if you are marshalling between Leos and the Ring Road.
 
NB marshals allocated to Meanwood Park will be meeting at the north end of the park (near Parkside Road) but if possible should park the Meanwood end and walk through to reduce the number of cars near the road crossing.
 
Baildon Boundary Way
 
Conditions were boggy to put it mildly.  At the end of the race, there was a longer queue to wash shoes under the tap than there was for the T shirts.

South Leeds 5 (March 25)
 
Peter Lambert ran 38:06 to win the MV70+ category by a clear 8 minutes.  Mick Helm the race organiser had given him race number 70.
 
In the younger age categories, Peter Johnson was first MV55-59 in 30:08 and in the process beat all the MV50's too.  He was 22nd overall.  It was quite close as the next MV55's were 9 seconds and 23 seconds behind.  4th MV55 in 33:13 was Terry Lonergan, and 8th MV55 in 36:28 was Tony Haygarth.
 
There was one other Strider who started - this was Joyce the Voice Lambert who was the official starter for the race!
 
Room to let  (message from Sam and Mary Harris)
 
Me and my mum are both going to have to pull out of London   I'm still not feeling great and am doing very little running at the moment and my mum is still injured.  Before we cancel the hotel we have booked I want to check that no one else wants it.  Could you mention it on the next VS email or mention it to anyone you know who might still need accommodation the night before London.  The details are
- Holiday Inn Express in Greenwich
- 50 each for twin bedded room with shower including breakfast
- Walking distance from the start.
 
I believe this just leaves Jules representing Striders on the Championship women start (i.e. 9a.m.) but we will also be supporting Alison Bogie who also has to get up early for this start.
