Chairman’s Update!


Folks, A few quick things to update you on and request your help for. 1. MOLE VALLEY PARKRUN - DMVAC VOLUNTEER TAKEOVER: 1 SEPT ====================== Many of you will have already run at the wonderful Mole Valley parkrun at Denbies, and for those of you that have also volunteered there, many thanks for enabling so many runners to enjoy one of the best parkrun courses that there is. To celebrate the 25th Mole Valley parkrun, we have arranged for DMVAC to do a volunteer takeover on Saturday 1 September, which means that (ideally) all the volunteer slots will be filled by people from the club, all sporting running tops, fleeces or jackets (depending on the weather!) So, if you’re able to help out on Saturday 1 September and show all the runners (over 250 last weekend!) what a wonderfully friendly and supportive club we are, please drop the volunteer team a line on molevalleyhelpers@parkrun.com and let them know you’ll be able to help out, along with any preference for volunteer role. If you’re not sure what sort of roles there are, just pop along to the volunteer page on the Mole Valley parkrun website: http://www.parkrun.org.uk/molevalley/volunteer/ 2. CLUB WINTER HANDICAP SERIES ======================== With September beckoning, it means that the winter handicap series will be starting shortly. More details to follow in due course but please make a note of the following dates (basically the last Thursday in the month!) 27 Sept 25 Oct 29 Nov 31 Jan 28 Feb 28 Mar 3. BOYS CROSS COUNTRY 2018 / 19 - TEAM MANAGER REQUIRED ======================= As many of you know, our juniors (girls and boys, U17s and below) compete in the Surrey Cross Country League with 4 races taking place over the season. The boys’ team now needs a team manager for the season ahead - it’s just a case of putting out the communication in advance of the races, pulling together the team declaration and sorting out the numbers on the day; so the role is ideally suited to a parent (or parents) whose son will be competing during the season. Without someone taking on this role, our boys won’t be able to compete in the Surrey League, so if you are tempted please let me know (lawrencebate@btinternet.com) and I will go through the details of what’s required. Thanks in advance for your help. Lawrence
