Staffs Knot 2016



Dear fellow runners,

It is with great regret and sincere apologies that things did not go according to plan at Wednesday nights race.

Even though a huge amount of planning, preparation and hard work goes into these events before, during and afterwards, unfortunately sometimes things can and do go wrong. We will not be attributing blame or naming/shaming anyone as that is not how we operate.


I can personally vouch for each and every member of Stafford Harriers, all of whom willingly give up their free time to help and support the club at not just the Staffs Knot but all our club events. I too was present at the event marshalling out on the course and am very greatful my fellow club members are just as enthusiastic.


Without this valuable support we would not be able to put on the events and as a club would struggle.
Hopefully the majority of runners still enjoyed the race (extra bit including) and won't be put off entering any future Stafford Harrier events.


We will over the next week or so fully debrief the event so we can identify the learning points and going forward ensure that all necessary safeguards and checks are put in to prevent a reoccurance from happening.


Please if anyone has any issues then contact me via the website where I am more than happy talk.


Yours in running

Darren Mattocks
