Editorial - Healthy Communication
BAAC 5 Mile Winter Handicap 29th November 2012 results
On a fairly cold (at least for the timekeepers) but dry late November evening 11 runners took to the streets of Cranford shortly after 17:00 for the second 5M handicap of the 2012/13 season. Most (though not all) runners came reasonably close to their handicap time, with Eddie Giles being closest only 4 seconds under.
Adding the points to the October run we have a very close competition with 3 runners on 17 points and 3 on 16 points, see you all in December (12th, Start between 18:00 and 18:30 depending upon handicap) for the 3rd run.
Club 10k Trophy
The BAAC committee will shortly be identifying winners of club trophies for 2012. One prestigious award is the Brian Forrester 10K trophy, given to an individual who has blazed a trail for BAAC 10K running during the past twelve months.
Please could you send Steve Hillier details of your 10K running during the past year. It doesn't have to show completion of 30+ races, or a sub 30 minute time....interesting and quirky are good, too. I look forward to your messages between now and Christmas. Thanks.
Why don't you email an equivalent list for your favourite form of running?
Club Run-of-the-Month Sunday 2nd December Perivale Five - Results

Marathon Effort - please reply
Most of you have probably met Piers Keenleyside and are aware that he has run a few Marathons in his time and also does Ultra-run events with lengths greater than that of a Marathon.
So please reply now and guess how many 25mile plus races Piers has run in over the years. Tell me your guess...and also tell me how many such races you've done (for example I've run three). Next week I'll publish the answer for Piers, say who came closest (excluding me and Piers!) and what our total Marathons are. Reply to me.
Retired Runners Lunch last week...
...was a very enjoyable afternoon. The sun shone, the tide came in and went out again as planned.
Present John and Judy Williams, Steve and Sue Newell, Chris Stockwell, Brian Bennett & Ian Hudson.
News for the next BAAC News Digest? (See editorial rant above).
The idea of this communication is to consolidate some of the news items that would otherwise be forwarded individually to all club members. We will still send out prompt announcements for key events as separate emails. Please let us have your ideas for how club communications can be improved and please send us items for inclusion in the next Digest. Results, news, feedback, jokes, stores - send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org,uk.
