FOR DETAILS ABOUT ALL CLUB ACTIVITIES, DATES ETC please go to the club website http://www.chaser.me.uk


We're back to training after the Christmas break this week (details of sessions below) and to ease you back in gently, we've got our monthly pub night after the Tuesday runs - hope to see you there!  

You can now renew your membership for 2016 for £40 here:

If you want England Athletics membership for 2016/17 (starting in April) then please ensure the box in the My Details section of the website is ticked:

You can also add a photograph of yourself on here for our who's who.

If you would like England Athletics membership for 2015/16 and you don't have it yet then please email membership@chaser.me.uk.

I will be sending out reminders periodically so let me know if you have any difficulties renewing. If you do not renew by the end of March then we will automatically resign you, however you can also do this yourself if you would like to on the website.

Members are needed to marshal the next three races in our winter series, including the next one on 10 January. These races are essential to help keep our membership fees low and provide the many benefits that we all enjoy. And if you need an extra incentive above the warm feeling that volunteering and cheering the runners provides, you also get free entry to one of the races. Marshalling is just one of the many ways you can be involved with the club. You can now sign up and see how many marshalls are still needed for each month on the website at http://www.chaser.me.uk/news/calendar.php


Dates for the indoor track season are on the website at http://www.chaser.me.uk/docs/2015/indoorseason.pdf

Tuesday	 - Coached hills session with Andrea, suitable for all levels.  Hill sessions build strength and are an excellent session in the early weeks of marathon training.  
	 - Various pace runs at various distances
	 - Couch to 5K
Thursday - Track with Andrea
Sunday morning long runs - see Facebook for paces/distances  
For more details about runs, cycle rides 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 newsletter@chaser.me.uk 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.

You can now also see a selection of results on the website at https://www.chaser.me.uk/news/results.php
