We are already looking at our Championships Track programme for next year and were contemplating re-introducing a 10,000m. However, with a congested fixture list, this is not a simple task. Would we get support for this? Would athletes double up with the 5000m? Would it be a disaster for entering other events on the day? How can we get more members to enter a 10,000m track? This is becoming a rare event on the track, so why didn’t more members support it this year?
To help us answer at least a couple of these questions it would be a great help if members completed the Poll.
The Poll closes on the 1st October 2013
I am happy to announce that Elaine Mee has very kindly taken on the role of our Team Manager for the above event. Elaine is a very experienced athlete; official and club team manager and we are very pleased that she has filled this gap in our setup. Many of our members will already know Elaine who will be ably assisted on the day by Tony Porter.
Elaine will be receiving the list of members who have already declared their interest to be selected for the team by previously contacting either Irene Nicholls or Lou Satterthwaite. Any members who have NOT done this so far, then please contact Elaine on firstname.lastname@example.org
