Improvers Group Changes

posted 15 Aug 2017, 13:44 by BurgessHill Runners   [ updated 15 Aug 2017, 13:49 ]

Due to the popularity of the 6.30pm sessions on a Wednesday evening, we are going to trial starting the Improvers' group at 6.45pm from 6th September. There are just so many people in the hall at the start of Wednesday evenings that this should help ease some of the congestion.

We ask that you stick to the group that is suitable to you and hope that the shift in time doesn't inconvenience anyone too much.

The sessions will run as follows:

As the evenings are now starting to draw in, we would like to take the opportunity to remind members that "hi-viz and reflective" clothing must be worn for club sessions.

We only have a limited supply of hi-viz at the school so please remember that for your safety it is your responsibility to make sure that you have something available.  Runners without hi-viz will not be able to join the sessions.

Below is an example of an acceptable outer layer:

Thanks in advance for your cooperation with this.
