Winter Championship 2019/20 UPDATE

This years champs was originally planned as 13 races with your best 6 to count, after careful consideration the organiser has just left the latest Covid19 meeting and the following will now apply.

With the last 2 races cancelled results will now be taken over 11 races with your best 5 to count, age graded as usual with male and female trophies for the winners.

With a turnout topping last year’s championship over 80 members took part in at least 1 race.

Thankyou for your participation this year and hopefully come October we can have a full schedule for next season.

Should you have a race in mind that you’d like to be included please let me know over the next few months. Suggestions should be sent to Neil.

TTFN enjoy your Easter

They are joined by returning supporting officers Social Secretary Michelle Shepherd, Race Results Officer Neil Windle, and Awards Coordinator Andrew Stott, plus we’d like to welcome Philip Lickley on to the team as the Webmaster. You can find out more details about all these people and what they do at the club by visiting https://www.queensburyrc.co.uk/about-us/club-officers/

In other news, treasurer Andrew Dovernor has e-mailed everyone following the recent update about membership fees for 2020-21 confirming that, whilst QRC would like everyone to renew as soon as possible, if you feel that you are unable to do so in the current climate then England Athletics are maintaining their site and registration until 31st August 2020.

You should have received an invoice in your inbox which you can click on to pay whenever you are able. If you haven’t received an invoice please contact secretary Lynn Hill or for any other issues please e-mail Andrew.

Finally, before we let you get back to quizzes / running / setting your alarm for Joe Wicks, we’ll be using this down-time at the club to give the website and social media some digital polish and also coming up with some great ideas for the next year of QRC. If you have any ideas / thoughts / feedback / brilliant suggestions that we could bring to the website / social media / running club then please send them over to queensburyrc@gmail.com!

Thank you to all those who have re-joined the club for the year and to our new members. Please stay safe and we hope to welcome you back to QRC on Thursdays soon!
