10/04/15: Stage5: 42.2km (26.2 miles). 26.2 miles is a marathon. For clarity all marathons are the same length. Time Limit 12:00hrs. Word of the day = “Oued” A valley, gulley or stream bed which is dry. Not a weird typo by a mental bearded bloke in a desert.
This is a new location at Newstead Abbey on Wed 11th June. Follow the postcode NG15 8NA to get there. See you there for 7.15pm.
We have settled on a date for our annual club evening out running around some of the Derbyshire Gritstone Edges. It is Thursday 12th June. We will start as usual from the Robin Hood Pub just outside Baslow. Aim to be there in time to start running bang on 7pm. As always there will be a choice of longer or shorter routes varying from 5 up to 10 miles with varying degrees of climb involved. First timers are of course very welcome. There will be a more experienced person with every group so you won't get lost (unless you are in Nick's group!).

I am e-mailing to let you know of a fantastic evening event we are hosting alongside New balance on Wednesday 30th April.
After our normal store hours we will be re-opening at 6.15pm for a group run of 3-4 miles open to anyone starting at 6.30pm. We would love as many local clubs as possible to come along and get involved, making it one huge club run!
Once we get back to the shop we will stay open for another couple of hours, with extra in store discount and a FREE BBQ!
At this year's Presentation/Buffet Evening we held a raffle with all proceeds going to the chosen charity of Treetops Hospice in Risley.
We managed to raise an excellent £70 which was duly forwarded. In reply, the following letter was received:-
Congratulations to the Belshaw family and Richard Hyde for winning the various categories for 2013/14.
A very fierce contest this year with a total of 30 participants which kept the competition wide open until the very end.
Thanks to Stuart for looking after the points!
All our results are HERE
An excellent turnout for the traditional Long Eaton Lights run saw many of us donning party hats ( and one nameless person (Laura) in costume). With the smiling faces on their return it seems all had a good time although all looking decidedly "Drookit".
PLEASE NOTE --- THIS YEAR'S EVENTS SCHEDULED FOR 3rd NOVEMBER HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO FLOODING ON THE CAR PARK.
Because of the problems with the EAST MIDS CROSS COUNTRY LEAGUE and the impact on our CLUB CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPS it has been decided that we WILL renew our subscription to the NORTH MIDS CROSS COUNTRY LEAGUE.
This Email was received today ... may be some bargains to be had!!

Nick's friends, Stuart and Steve provided excellent bike support at our race last night.
They have asked if we can publicse their forthcoming bike ride. Full details are below. Please spread far and wide.
Stuart Hufton and I are involved in another charity challenge with a cycling friend, a 200 mile jaunt … Don’t worry, we're not asking for team members.
As you know we had to cancel the last one planned for May so I am hopeful we can get it together this time. Taking some feedback we are going to meet in the same place: The Robin Hood Inn, Chesterfield Rd, Baslow, Derbyshire DE45 1PQ but we are going to meet up a little later to give people a bit longer to travel from work. We will meet at 7pm for a 7.15 running start.
Gary Newham and Brett Belshaw are keen to re-establish the monday night training sessions. I think this is a very good idea and would be prepared to support this becoming a regular session. I propose we kick this off tomorrow (Monday 3rd June) meeting at the Club at 6.45pm.
Sessions will be informal and consist of whatever we want but could be hill reps or interval training. If we can get a good group of people coming along we could have 2 or 3 different groups doing different sessions.
