07/09/2017 Petition re Rhubarb Bridge

Dear Member,

 As you may know, the City Council intends to replace the bridge over/under the Soke Parkway at the Brotherhoods roundabout with pedestrian lights on the slip roads. Many of us run that way in the dark evenings, and some cycle that route. This plan will make the journey more difficult, slow and dangerous. If you wish to make your feelings felt on this there is a new petition on Rhubarb bridge plans.

http://democracy.peterborough.gov.uk/mgEPetitionDisplay.aspx?ID=38&RPID=2907917&HPID=2907917

 

Your committee feel that many individuals will carry more weight than the club making a group complaint.

 

07/09/2017 Sunday Run from Elton 10/9

Message from Dan re this week's Sunday run: 

Just a quick one for your diaries - this Sunday's 'cake' run on 10th Sept at 09:00am from Elton will be 11 miles (predominantly off-road) taking in 4-5 Northamptonshire villages (with water + jelly baby stop at the top of a castle!). A shorter 6 mile option is available (still taking in the half time refreshments) so ideal for those new to Sunday runs or wanting to give it a go. Tea, coffee and homemade cakes will be a plenty at the end. Please meet opposite the Crown Inn Pub on Duck Street PE8 6RQ. Plenty of parking round the green. Look forward to seeing you on Sunday!

07/03/2017 Frostbite 12/3/2017

I've been advised that Sunday's frostbite course is "entirely on playing field and grass field margins so it will be suitable for spikes. However the grass is short and the land well drained so a decent pair of trail shoes will suffice."

Please see http://www.frostbiteleague.org.uk/Race_6_directions_2017.pdf for directions.

09/02/2017 Bourne Frostbite

"What a great race today in the woods despite the mist and murk. Thanks to Peter and the team at Bourne for letting us loose on their mud.

Hunts AC again took top spot in the senior race with BRJ taking 1st in the junior race. There were 181 juniors out today (one or two loosing shoes) with 430 in the senior race. Some of your runners may notice that their finishing positions are 1 or 2 lower than the tokens given to them. This is due to a couple incidents on the finish line one of which involved one of the female runners being hit and knocked to the ground requiring attention from the first aid team. I also understand that there was today another runner who was not wearing club colours but a T-Shirt from a mud obstacle race. Unfortunately, the runner was not challenged and therefore escaped being disqualified. Please will you ensure that all runners are aware of the rules and abide by them.   

The next race is on 12th March at Jubilee Park, Huntingdon. "

Dave Richmond, Frostbite Chairman.
