NSCCL – KEELE 19th November
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL RACES AT KEELE UNIVERSITY ON 19TH NOVEMBER 2016 ARE CANCELLED
The League Secretary, with agreement of other League Officers, has unfortunately decided that it is not feasible to stage
any of the races on the courses that were devised at Keele, due to the numbers of athletes and spectators that would be in the confined areas, which could result in accidents.
We wish to acknowledge the work done by Vicky and her colleagues of the Keele University Athletic Union to host the event
for the League, after giving her late notice of our concerns, she has asked about the possibility of using other parts of the Campus or Associated Grounds, but these cannot be made available to the
The Individual & Team Competitions will be all 3 of 3 races to count.

The latest news on the Parkrun
The parkrun organising team which consists of members from Chase Harriers, Chasewater Runners, Rugeley Runners & Stafford Harriers are very proud and pleased to announce the following key
dates in the parkrun launch timeline.
WEBSITE/SOCIAL MEDIA - Should go live by 28th October, watch this space! When it does go live don't forget to register at https://www.parkrun.org.uk/register/ Run and volunteer enough times to be rewarded!!
TRIAL RUNS - Saturday 5th & 12th November 9am @ Marquis Drive Visitors centre/cafe.
These will both be trial runs where the event will be fully run as if real where it is hoped to identify and iron out any issues prior to launch.
As such any member that would like to run or volunteer for these trial runs would be more than welcome. It will be all 4 clubs getting involved so if you can ran and/or help please turn up. All
parkruns start at 9am so arrive abit before especially if helping to find out about your role & instructions.
GO LIVE - Saturday 19th November 9am @ Marquis Drive Visitors centre/cafe.
All hands on deck as all 4 clubs combine to hopefully make the launch a massive success. Please lend a hand in anyway you can although I appreciate it clashes with NSCCL but I would anticipate
most people being stood down by 10 to 10.30 am in any case.
Moving forward any member can run and/or volunteer on any week however Stafford Harriers will have ownership of running the event every 4th week starting from 10th December.
This is an event for juniors & seniors but under 11's must be accompanied by an adult.
Any queries please contact me direct or via the website
