brings two new opportunities for club members:
(1) The Concorde 10K is our flagship road race, held each year in May or June.
Paul Knechtl has co-ordinated our efforts as Race Director for a decade, but
has decided to take a well-deserved break. Options for next year include
retaining our present 10K course, or to make more use of Cranford Park and
introduce a "Concorde 5 mile" race. We have willing helpers, but need someone
to take the lead in planning next year's event.
(2) For several years, Simon Turton has organised the volunteers on behalf of
BAAC to support the London Marathon organised events. This
has included the London Marathon, BUPA 10000 and City Race and Women's
With the gap between the LM and BUPA being just 4-6 weeks, we would like to give
Simon some respite by finding a new team leader for the
BUPA marshalling effort in May. If you feel you could coordinate the
recruitment and duties of a couple of dozen marshals, this is the event
for you. Simon is happy to provide a detailed handover and we will ensure that
good support is in place to help you.
If you would like to
take on either of these roles, please contact any member of the committee, or
Paul or Simon.
