PLEASE SUPPORT YOUR CLUB!
The Mornington Chasers Regent’s Park Winter Series is how we raise most of our funds. We need members to volunteer to marshall these races. In return you get free entry to another race in the series. The races are run on the first Sunday of the month from October to March inclusive and we need people to volunteer for October. If you can help, in the first instance please speak with Avril Riddell.
For those of you who are on STRAVA, we have a Mornington Chasers STRAVA group (http://15o9.mj.am/link/15o9/kp8k9pp/2/qVGvXh7UEWn08_b5QGVlPA/aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuc3RyYXZhLmNvbS9jbHVicy9tb3JuaW5ndG9uLWNoYXNlcnM). Members can like each other's activities, comment on them or simply see what others are doing. Thank you to Phil Tysoe for the reference.
TRAINING THIS WEEK
Meet at Talacre Mezzanine Level at 1900 for briefing and 1915 departure.
Coached session with Andrea - suitable for all levels.
Choice of summer runs which may include, across Hampstead Heath and beyond, The Regent's Park or Madame Tussauds, from 5 to 6 or up to 10 miles at various speeds depending on who is available to lead the groups.
Potential new members are welcome to try us out on a Tuesday night so are frequently spotted within our runs!
Tea and biscuits after the run on the Mezzanine Level at Talacre.
Hannah is planning various BIKE SESSIONS (Swains Lane reps often at 0630 on Wednesday mornings) please see our Facebook page for updates.
Sessions planned by our coach Tom Craggs are for all members and are designed to develop and inspire excellence whatever your chosen discipline. The current focus is on building speed endurance. Please meet at Talacre for easy run to the session venue.
30 July TRACK
Couch to 5K adult beginners programme on Hampstead Heath. Beginners must pre-register for the programme via the club website. Please encourage non-running friends or colleagues to join-up – they’ll love it! Volunteers meet outside Hampstead Heath overground station at 9:45. If you would like to help with running these programmes or lead a programme please speak with Hannah McQuarrie (the committee member responsible for training) or John Armstrong (who is leading the current programme).
Long runs from Talacre usually at 0900, suitable for experienced runners able to run a minimum of 10 miles. Paces and distances vary, please check our Facebook page details.
To include your results in the newsletter please email Andrea (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the details. A brief description of what you thought of the race and if you would recommend it to others would be great too, but not essential. There is no need to send results from Club races such as Summer League, Southern Athletics League and Cross Country as these are gathered by the team captains / event managers.
