#teamkestrels Cross Country needs you!

It is now less than 4 weeks until the first inter-club cross country event! As a reminder here are the dates:

  • 2nd January – Retford
  • 16th January – Clowne
  • 30th January – Killamarsh
  • 13th February – Handsworth
  • 27th February – Worksop

All Races start at 11am.

Our captains this year are Rachel Cadey and Kev Rowles and they need all of our support!

For those of you who love nothing more than working up a sweat on a Sunday morning in freezing cold muddy conditions get your name down for the team. The more runners we have the better and we encourage everyone to get involved! Speak to Rach or Kev at any club night to get a race number, or have a chat at the upcoming Crown Buffet on 14th December.

Not keen on running? No problem! You can still support the club and the cross country event by volunteering to marshal our home event on 30th January. We can’t put the event on without our enthusiastic marshals ensuring our runners know where they are going, you are even welcome to give hints to runners from other clubs too…

Lets show the other clubs how its done and get as many black and yellow vests out there as we can!


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,
