Another missive from from your loving Chairman and coach.The pandemic has played havoc with the club meets, races and other events. I know it’s still going on but, with luck, we shall see a positive change in the near future. In the past we functioned very well as a club with 20/30 members out and 3/4 groups for training. It would be very gratifying to come together as a club again and regain some of the BRR spirit which we used to have. It would be a great shame to see the club wither on the vine and the only way we can prevent it from doing so is to come together and have some great training sessions again.Let me know of your thoughts. Love to you all. Ian
Its that time to start thinking about what you want to achieve with your running this year. Now that the new Grand Prix season is about to begin, perhaps you might like to do as many of these races as possible, or all of those over ten miles for instance. The MTRS has eight races; can you do all of these? Perhaps you are going for distance; set a target to achieve by December 31st. Whatever you want to do this year, set targets now – and stick to your schedules. If you need help with this, just shout.
It is with great regret that together with the Jamaica Inn, we have to announce that the Brown Willy Run 2022 is CANCELLED. The decision was not taken lightly but in view of rising covid infection rates and a difficulty maintaining social distancing within the Jamaica Inn, we feel it is the best decision to ensure the safety of runners, the staff and guests of the Jamaica Inn and the residents of Bolventor. We urge you to please respect this decision of us and the Jamaica Inn and NOT turn up on the day.We really hope to reorganise this run for a later date – watch this space! Please share this with anybody that may have been thinking of attending. Thank you (Beth Kay – Brown Willy Run)
Please note that the Great Flat Lode race, to be held on May 8th is no longer part of the MTRS. This leaves SEVEN races for the series, with FIVE to count towards a trophy. Here is the amended Race Diary. Ian
