Clubhouse Spring Cleaning Morning

Dear All,

It’s been some time since the clubhouse had a good spring clean ( yes I know it is almost September). I would like to get a working party together for one Saturday morning for a few hours. Date to be arranged. Please let me know if you are willing to help out. Either see me at the clubhouse or e mail me on davidalan.smith2@gmail.com

Free Sports Massage at the Clubhouse

Kirsten Williams is studying for a BTEC level 5 in Soft Tissue Therapy with Mel Cash at the London School of Sports Massage. As part of this course she needs to complete a number of soft tissue treatments in order to qualify. To help her achieve this we have agreed for Kirsten to attend the club to offer soft tissue massage for anyone who is interested.

The services she would be offering to members include

– sports massage

– postural assessment

– remedial massage

Techniques used will include neuromuscular technique, soft tissue release and muscle energy technique as well as more general massage.

Before treatment will commence a full case history will need to be taken and consent forms signed.

Kirsten will not be able to treat acute injuries so volunteers should wait at least 3-5 days post injury before having a treatment.

Initially Kirsten will be available on Thursday evenings for appointments from 7 until 9.15. Treatments will last around 40 mins. If there is demand she may also start running sessions on Tuesday evenings as well.

If members are interested in having a treatment if they could email Kirsten in advance on kirstenstep@aol.com. Although she will be able to offer on the day treatments it will be easier to treat if she has appointments arranged.

These services  will be offered free of charge from w/b 26 September.

Gosunder Trophy Results 2016

Congratulations to Paul Spencer for winning the latest edition of the Gosunder handicap trophy on Saturday 6th August. Despite the course being fractionally longer than last year due to an enforced detour Paul finished nearly 5 minutes faster than 12 months ago holding off a challenge from Bob Burton in 2nd and Melanie Spencer in 3rd giving us a married couple on the podium.

New for this year we had some relay teams taking part running 2×2.5 miles which allowed some of our younger runners (and parents and coaches) to take part and we saw some great times.

Many thanks to everyone who raced or helped out on the day, there was a great atmosphere which continued into the night back at the clubhouse.

DEVIL TAKES THE HINDMOST 2016

DEVIL TAKES THE HINDMOST 2016
This year’s competition will take place on Tuesday 30th August at 7pm on the
normal course at Rochester Road in Northwood Hills, opposite Haydon School.
Please register at the clubhouse by 6.30pm or be at Rochester Road by 6.50pm.
You compete entirely at your own risk.
All Club members are welcome to run, with a £3 fee for any non-Club members.
This year there will be four competitions:
Women Maximum of eight rounds
Over 40 Men Maximum of eight rounds
Under 40 Men Maximum of ten rounds
Plate (for those knocked out in early stages of the other three competitions)
Maximum of five rounds
How does it work?
All the runners in each competition start together and run up the hill (just under 300m
in length). The last one to the top is eliminated (sometimes more depending on
number of entries).
The remainder jog back down again and then repeat the run up the hill. Once again,
the last one to the top is eliminated (sometimes more depending on number of
entries).
This is repeated until only one runner is left, who is the winner of the competition.
So that everyone gets more than one run, halfway through the event everyone who has
been eliminated to that point in the three main competitions can enter the Plate
competition.
Further details if required from Gavin Collett
