Club Kit at Championship Races

In the club championship rules it states that Club Kit should be worn at club championship races; and in the constitution it says that you should wear club colours (gold and black) at any race.

With this is mind the committee has made the decision that from this date forward (starting with SMaRRT Smasher) anyone not wearing club kit will not receive any points in the championship for that race.

The club kit is either the t-shirt or vest with the large Corsham Running Club logo emblazoned across the front.

There are 2 exceptions.

  1. If you’re doing a specific race for a charity and are wearing that charity’s shirt.
  2. If it is agreed by committee that something different is allowed. e.g. Christmas fancy dress at Bromham last year.

Club Championship – Wiltshire 10

The Club Championship table has been updated following the Wiltshire 10  – TABLE

In the ladies championship Lauren Edwards has moved into the lead with 39 points, Debbie Kearsey and Jo Motto are 2nd and 3rd on 20 and 19 points.

In the mens championship, it’s already looking like a procession for Pete Allen as he has got maximum points from the first 2 races. However Jon Morrell (37 points) and Craig Rumble (35 points) will be pushing him all the way and are ready to pounce if Pete has to miss races again this year.

Our next championship race is Smartt Smasher which takes place next Sunday at 11am in Calne.

Congratulations to all of our members today who raced or braved the conditions to support.

Club Championship Table – Slaughterford 9

The club championship tables are now on display at THIS LINK

The early lead in the ladies has gone to Debra Kearsey with Lauren Edwards and Rachel Cannon in 2nd and 3rd respectively.

Pete Allen is leading the men with Lee Davis and Jon Morrell in 2nd and 3rd. Lee, Jon and Craig were all very close to Pete on age grading so hopefully we’re in for quite a battle in 2017.

The next club championship race is the Wiltshire 10 on Sunday 12th February

Request for Blind Runner Guide for Lungbuster on 5th Feb

We’ve received a request (replicated below) to ask if anyone would like to be a guide for a blind runner. The race is a 10 mile cross country starting in Broad Hinton and you’d get free entry and a medal at the end. 

If you can help out please contact Rob Davies on chairman@royalwoottonbassetthounds.co.uk

I’m a blind runner who races most weekends.

I’m writing to ask if you could post on facebook or twitter or email current entrants of lungbuster 2017 on Sunday 5 February to see if anyone would be willing to guide me

No experience needed

I would just hold a right arm

I would obviously be slow, due to the nature of the ground

I run road 10 miles in around 2 hours

I would also appreciate the guide collecting me from a friend’s in Park South and back.

I look forward to hearing from you either way
