Countdown to the Crown Buffet!

It’s not too late to pick up a ticket for the inaugural Crown Buffet on 14th December, a bargain at £5 which includes a quiz and hot food. Speak to Alicia, Sara, Sam or Chris to get your ticket.

Dress Fancy! (not Fancy Dress…)

This is one of the rare occasions where Kestrels can venture out in something other than sweaty high viz, so feel free to dust off your glad rags! For those of you who have checked the back of your wardrobe to discover you only own running kit and pyjamas, you are not alone! No pressure, dress code is optional.

Our annual awards ceremony will also take place during the Crown Buffet, we will be sending out an email tomorrow with a link for you to nominate your “member of the year” and “performance of the year”.

We hope to see you there,

Cross Country is BACK for 2022!

We are thrilled that after a year off due to COVID our annual interclub cross country series is back, kicking off on 2nd January 2022 in Retford.

As is tradition this means carefully selecting captains for both the men’s and women’s teams. In addition, we are also having vice captains to help share the workload – with VCs taking captaincy the following year and new VCs being selected.

For 2022 our captains are Rachel Cadey and Kevin Rowles.

They will be supported by our vice captains Sara Hammett Ridsdale and Andy Hammett Ridsdale.

We are sure everyone will join us in wishing them the best of luck. They will be looking to sort out numbers by confirming which of our members intend to compete soon. You can read up about the rules here.

We will also be on the lookout for volunteers to marshall our own event on 30th January, so if you want to get involved but don’t fancy running through the freezing mud this is a great option! Speak to Les Crownshaw or Alicia Parkes to volunteer.

More updates will follow on our post-run venue (as the Leisure Centre will still be out of action) and updates to our route… stay tuned!
