Flowers Mile - Thursday 14th Sept - Starts 7pm sharp

Hello all

Please do put the above date in your diary. The annual winter championships kicks off with our shortest race (on the road) of the season. We always get a good turn out from juniors and some track athletes as well. Make sure you're at the clubhouse by 6:30 and register by 6:45pm. The race will start at 7pm sharp as the light is gone by 7:20pm.

As usual we will need volunteers (at least 6) to help with timekeeping and marshalling. If we have insufficient volunteers on the night we will not be able to hold the event. Anyone who would like to come enjoy the racing from the sidelines - please offer your services by replying to this message or contacting me directly.

This is a great chance to see how you fare over the classic distance. The course record stood for a long time, held by Steve Mahon (who still trains on a Tuesday night at the club), from 1986, and was broken by Paul Martelletti in 2012 who completed the course in 4mins 22. [Paul also holds the club's beer mile record as of Saturday]. The women's record is held by former captain Holly Weir who set a time of 5m18s in 2011.

A special note about numbers
As I did last year, I plan to issue one number you keep for all of the club champs races over the winter (1 mile, 3.5 mile, 5 mile XC, 10 mile and 20 mile). If you don't plan to race throughout the winter I will issue you a number from a different set.

Previous results
I pulled together all the results since 2006, including last year's - check them out here:

For those who are newer to the club or interested in the history of the race please see the post below from Terry Adams, long time club member / coach and occasional competitor!;article=16581;title=VPHTHAC%20Noticeboard

See you on the 14th!
