Crouch End 10K. Hackney Half, & Other races

23/5/18  With the SAL report to come later, the main event of this report  was undoubtedly  our local race, the Crouch End 10K. By all accounts it was a great success, the races went smoothly and the event was well marshalled with a large number of Heathsiders  contributing to the volunteering effort.

Action wasn’t confined to the streets of Crouch End however, and there  were several other events of note, including the Hackney half and a couple of longer off road events, although the warm weather made it challenging for distance runners

Volunteering Spring and Summer 2018
DATE: 25/04/2018

Our club is entirely run by volunteers. It’s the only way we can operate and maintain our low subscription rate. We need as many members as possible this spring and summer to give volunteering for the club a try.

We have 550 adult members and if everyone volunteered just ONCE, all our problems would be solved.

"Many hands make (your answer here)."

(Those of you who never hesitate to help out… more of the same, pretty please! ☺)

Anyway, here’s what we have coming up…
