Derby Kilomathon

Last Sunday a group of Erewash runners volunteered to marshall the last 5 kilometres of this year's England Kilomathon. We did this on the understanding that any financial reward would be donated to Karen Hodgson as she attempts to win medals at the forthcoming World Transplant Games in Goteborg.

Marshalls Required

A request has been received from NOTTS AC for help at a couple of prestigous events coming up in the next couple of weeks.

So if you are at a loose end why not go along and help out

You could always run there and back afterwards!

Hi everyone

The English schools Cross country Champs are being held at Wollaton Park on Saturday 19 March, if you have anyone at your club who is interested in marshalling please contact myself or John Knight (Notts AAA Sec)

Tony Trembirth Award

The winner this year is KAREN HODGSON.

Karen has been an inspiration to all athletes and not just those at our club. She has proved that, no matter what trials and tribulations stand in ones way, she has the strength and courage to make the most of the situation and just get on with life.

E.R.I.C. Winner

The winner of this year's E.R.I.C. was, surprise, surprise !! Matty Brennan who seems to be sweeping the board on everything this year. Well done Matty.

Commiserations to Kevin Roughton who ran him a close second with Colin Lewis back in third.


A couple of years ago one of our stalwart (another word for MAD) runners took up a teaching post in Japan.
This little note was received via the website.
If you read this Jim ...

"Oh, What A Night It Was, It Really Was"

Many thanks to Melanie Brennan for a great night out.
(must be worth a few points!)

It was a night of two halves:

QUASAR - This saw us charging around a darkened maze with things resembling sub-machine guns and trying to shoot your opponents as much as possible without getting shot yourself. We split into two teams (and our team won which we won't mention!).

Our OMM teams

Good luck to our teams in the OMM this weekend.

Neil/Matt and Phil/Nick are in the Long Score.
George/Anne are in the Medium Score.
Richard/Karen are in the Short/Score (but look like pulling out due to illness).
Cecilia/Caroline are in the C Class.

The Dartmoor mist will make things interesting.

Quaser and bowling night (Thur 4th Nov)

We are planning a quaser and bowling night.  Details from Mel below:

Date: Thursday 4th November (time to be decided)
Cost: £17.50

We get 3 games of quaser and bowling (i.e. 2 of one and one of the other).  We have suggested 2 quaser and 1 bowling, but we can work with whatever people prefer.

Food is also included.

Club Handicap 2010

Thanks very much to the seventeen who came along for our annual fun handicap race. After the usual moaning and groaning about start times everyone seemed to "enjoy" the race.

The well deserved winner this year was Matty Brennan who, not only finished first but started last!!! Can someone please devise a plan to slow him down ???

All results are in the "Championship" section.

Watch this space for a "new style" handicap next year

Pairs Championship 2010

Many thanks to all who took part in this year's competition.

Special thanks to Kevin Roughton and Anne Brownhill who turned out for every race.

Congratulations go to Kevin Roughton and Neil Weightman - tying for first place with 22 points each. Followed closely by Anne Brownhill in third place just one point behind on 23.

See you all again next summer.

Full scores are in the "Championship" section.


THE RUN 2010

Once again another excellent race with almost 100 competitors. Even the weather was kind.

Once again both male and female records have gone!

Bruce Rayside from Notts AC broke the twenty minute barrier with a superb 19:22.

Sarah Harris from Long Eaton RC was first lady with an impressivre 22:07.

All results are here
