For competitors

If you’re interested in running, please go to https://www.valleystriders.org.uk/meanwood-junior-races-2019/

There is then a link to the Racebest website to enter

Note that fully paid up Valley Striders Junior Members should use discount code “VSJ” to get the race for free.

This event is open to juniors on the waiting list, please enter and pay the £3 entry fee. 

Richard and Bob will be available during the evening to talk to prospective junior members and their parents.

Online entries close 12 noon Monday.

Entries will be available on the night at £3 extra.

Marshals instructions

If you’ve volunteered to marshal please see www.valleystriders.org.uk/archive/vsmarshals.htm  to see what team you’ve been allocated to.

– Car parkers should arrive by 5:15pm and report to Paul Furness outside the clubhouse

– Entries and results team should arrive by 5:30pm latest and report to Tom Button / Bob Jackson inside the clubhouse

– Finish line team should arrive by 6:10pm and report to Andy Wicks on the finish line

– Marshals on points 1 to 10 should arrive by 6:05pm and report to Richard Irvine & Karl Robottom by the tall V S flag which will be on the rugby field (if you’re going to be late please TEXT Richard on 07804-169-797)

– Marshals on points 11 to 23 should arrive by 6:25pm and report to Richard & Karl by the tall V S flag

– Important note that if you have children running you must arrive earlier than these times and collect their race numbers before checking in with your team leader.

All instructions will be given by your team leaders, no need to do anything else in advance, but maybe helpful if marshals look at the course map

Just a few more helpers on the night needed

We’re looking for 2 or 3 more marshals in the woods to ensure that every marshal has line-of-sight to the next.

We also need a tail runner/jogger for every race (could be one person to do all 4 races).

Please email [email protected] if you can help

Ken Fox has been very busy, downloading the PDF of full results from the Run For All website, using the PDF->Excel convertor, then doing lots of fiddling with the columns because the PDF file hasn’t been designed to be able to convert the columns, then matching to the current membership list, and this is what he’s come up with
