We’re well into 2018 now and the 2017 Season was officially closed off at our rather excellent prize party evening. Congratulations to all our winners from the 2017 running champs and our 1st ever bake off champs (think that’ll be returning next year). If you weren’t around on the evening to collect your trophy / medal we’ll have them with us at the XC on Sunday.

Hope you all had a very healthy and training intensive Christmas and are ready for a spectacular New Year. Before we reach 2018 there is just 1 last thing to do…Dream Mile 31st Dec, Bramcote Track 10:00. It’s a Pb and record counter. May need something a little grippy on the feet to stay upright and as a special New Years Eve treat we’ll even do a cool down lap of the Bramcote XC course.
A little EVRC FYI for this weeks funzies...
This Wednesday's club night (13/12) is a little different because it includes the annual FARTS night. A normal club night run is still on at 19:00 but if you’re up for a FART some ARSE or a POOP the full details are below. You will need off road shoes and a headtorch. With the recent weather we’re expecting the conditions to be difficult (sludge), so be sensible with your selection of route. Being out in mud, -5 and in the dark on an unfamiliar route for longer than 2hrs is not wise.
Sportshoes.com have offered EVRC members 10% off and free delivery on all orders. The offer is through a discount code which changes each month. We’re not allowed to publish the code and it’s for members only so don’t go sharing elsewhere or they’ll stop sending us the discount code. We’ll pass the voucher code out at club night.
The summer and autumn race season is over which means it’s time to get some winter miles in to build that aerobic base, some cross country strength training in to injury proof and crank up your potential top speed and some beer training so you don’t embarrass yourself at the xmas party. Handily EVRC is to here help with all of that.

Round 3 of the Pairs champs is this week. For those of you unfamiliar with the Pairs Champs nothing special is needed just turn up as normal ready to go for 19:00 at the clubhouse (a bit earlier would be good so we can sort the teams out).
The Run by EVRC had another successful year. We sold out, the sun made a little appearance and nobody died, though Gary did have to go find a nice dark safe place afterwards to de-stress. As ever race organiser Brian did a brilliant job in making the race happen and herding the rest of us into the right places.
