MORNINGTON CHASERS ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
The club's Annual General Meeting will be held on Monday 2 November at 7pm at The Grafton pub, just down the road from the Talacre. The agenda is on the website at http://www.chaser.me.uk/news/agm.shtml, along with a proposed new Club Constitution for consideration at the AGM. A new committee will also be voted in to take up their posts in 2016 - a list of the roles can be found on the page linked to above. If you would like to stand for any of the roles, please send an email to the club secretary Rafaele at email@example.com before the AGM.
This year our club championship race is being held on 1 November at the Mornington Chasers Regent's Park 10K. When you register, please include that you are a member of Mornington Chasers so that you are included in the championships results. Details, as always, available in the events section http://www.chaser.me.uk/calendar. If you are injured or recovering from another race, please consider volunteering as a marshal so that you can still be part of the day - see below.
CLUB WINTER SERIES 10K in Regent's Park
Marshals are needed for the race on 1 November as well as the subsequent four races too. These races are essential to the health of our club funds. Marshalling is just one of the many ways you can be involved with the club. Please email Avril to volunteer at firstname.lastname@example.org
ST NEOTS HALF MARATHON COACH
More than 30 Chasers are on the start list for the sold-out St Neots Half Marathon on 15 November so we will be arranging a coach to take us from the Talacre and bring us back afterwards. If you would like a place, please register your interest at https://www.chaser.me.uk/news/signUp.php?id=186. Bear in mind that the train won't get you there in time to register so the coach is your best bet!
LAKE DISTRICT TRAIL RACE IN MAY
A bunch of us will be heading to the Lake District in May to do the following race: http://www.lakelandtrails.org/staveley/
If you want to come then let us know via the website (http://www.chaser.me.uk/news/signUp.php?id=190) and then we'll be in touch in January about accommodation.
THIS WEEK'S COACHED SESSIONS:
Tuesday, suitable for all levels.
Thursday at Parliament Hill track.
The session details are usually posted on our Facebook page on the day.
For details about other runs on Tuesdays and across the week, cycle rides and reps plus our couch to 5K programme for non-members please see the club website or Facebook page.
To include your results in the newsletter please email email@example.com 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 Start Fitness Metropolitan Cross Country League as these are gathered by the team captains / event managers.

LOVE LUTON HALF MARATHON, 25 OCTOBER
"This was the 3rd edition of the race with about 800 runners. Most of the race (14km) was on Stockwood Park, Luton Hoo hotel & surrounding areas - v beautiful. Final parts in Luton town itself. V hilly race! Well organised. Would run it again."
