  1. Are We Nearly There?

The number of Club members (and their non-member partners!) signing up to support the Club through marshalling at the Riverbank Rollick continues to grow, thank you. I will get back to all volunteers once I have enough people to allocate roles, please save the date – Sunday 14th January. We still need more marshals and have yet to hear from a great many members. This year we are implementing a race ‘cut off time’ which should reduce the time people are required to marshal for. It only takes 60 seconds to sign up and join the team. I would like to have all marshal positions sorted by the end of November please, as there is a lot to do in the final countdown to the event. Marshalling is fun and allows the Club to fund events – pizza, drinks, chilli, XC, CWR etc. We need marshals to run this event safely and not to lose any runners! Thanks again. ->  RR Link for everyone
