Ladies & Gents,
Hope you all well and enjoyed your Weekend?
This weeks Wed evening run will be at 7.30pm (16th Sept 2015) from Hollybush.
The dark nights have finally caught up with us, and with Weather forecast as possible showers, at a temp of 15/14C, dark from about 7.45pm or earlier, please bring your lightweight "hi-Vis" running vest, head torches, and/or flashing lights for your arms/tops, and please try and avoid wearing dark tops, as in the dark you will be difficult for drivers & other road users to see. Just wear top/layers to suit the weather, but remember 15C is still not COLD, so save the winter tops & thicker jackets for real autumn & winter weather.
From now onwards, until the night get lighter again, most of our Wed evening runs/sessions, will involve at some stage us running on or near minor roads, or adjacent pavements near traffic, so I really MUST insist, if you haven't done so already, that you get hold of these lightweight runners yellow hi-vis vest, head torch, and perhaps also flashing arm bands, so all road users can see you. If you already have them from last year, try & find them, or if you haven't got any, check out online, or go to running shops near where you live or work, or in Sevenoaks - Up & Running or Bat & Ball shops sell them.
This weeks wed evening run will be a cul-de-sac run, around various cul-de-sacs in and around Sevenoaksarea. If you haven't had the pleasure of one of these, then come along and give this run a go .
As I myself am recovering from a longer run on Sunday, then this weeks run is ideal for both me, for those just getting back into running after recovering from an injury, holidays, or other excuses. But also the flexibility of these types of runs are that they are suitable for everyone fit or less fit, slow or slighter faster, and is suitable for everyone, and for many runners, so come along and give it a go.
I'm not sure how online registration is going with Ian & David, but I know some of you have completed the registration and got your new personalised bar code/tag, which you must bring for each run. For those still going through this process, don't panic, just turn up as usual, with all your tokens, so we can record this.
For runners that have yet to complete the registration form, you know who you are, so please can you do this asap, see link below, to help us coaches, and make it easier for everyone. Please bring along all of your tokens, so we can add this as credit to the system. At sometime in the very near future & I'm sure David would like to do without use of anyone bring cash to a run, so please help us to help you, thanks.
In regard to some SLJ that join us on Wed night runs, I'm sure we will still be able to deal with this challenge, in this new system, so for now still please just bring your SLJ tokens or cash, until we tell you otherwise.
See you all Wed evening
Ladies & Gents,
