The club is looking for someone to co-ordinate the Cross Country team, as Anna Waterman is no longer able to continue in the role. Tasks include taking race entries, entering races and organising numbers and admin on the day (or getting others to do this if you can't attend). If you'd like more information on the role, please feel free to talk to Anna or email her. If you think you may be willing to help the club by taking on this important role, please let Alice know. Many thanks to Anna for all her past efforts leading Chasers cross country.
Fancy getting off road this summer and trying some trail runs? The Orion Forest Five is a series of 3 five mile races in Epping Forest on the first Saturday of each month throughout the summer. Or, if you fancy a longer run, how about the 30km North Downs Run on 26 June? All these races come highly recommended by the many Chasers who have run them in previous years. See our calendar for full details.
Thanks to everyone that has signed up already for the Southern Athletics League in Thurrock on Sat 21st May. If you haven't yet but plan to compete please sign up here and state which events you fancy in the comments box (this can be altered later if you change your mind). It would be really good if we could get enough people to field men and women's relay teams! All abilities welcome and will be a fun day out. If you've never done a track race before think of all the PBs you'll be getting...
The Tuesday session this week will be led by Andrea and the Thursday track session by Adrian & Chris. Details will be posted on the Mornington Chasers Facebook page in advance for anyone unable to attend.
Crystal Palace Triathlon, Sunday 15 May
Several Chasers took part in this popular sprint triathlon yesterday. It was a good day all round – lovely weather, great organisation, friendly marshals, a challenging course and PBs to boot. The Sunday roast in a beer garden after was pretty good too! Highly recommended for any Chasers wanting to get into multisport next year as well as the more experienced.
Staveley 10k and 17k Lakeland trail races, Saturday 7 May
We had stunning scenery, glorious weather, and the best of company at the Staveley 10k and 17k Lakeland trail races. Chasers old and new had a fabulous time, and it was great to catch up with Tim, Kayleigh, Rafa and Mike.
Starfish Bexhill Marathon, Sunday 15 May
A friend pulling out (and my inability to say "NO" to a free race) meant that I would be 'enjoying' the 26.2 mile distance for the second time in 13 days; and what better way to do it than on a four-lap course that involved running up and down Bexhill's infamous Galley Hill 8 times and tackling glorious coastal headwinds?! Starfish are still trying to get their races off the ground, but it was well organised and nice to pick up a silver medal at the end of the race and get my face in the local paper. Good fun and a challenging course. 3:10:04 (2) – Myles Preston
