Ironman Volunteers

 

Ironman Staffs is back on 18th June and once again Stafford Harriers have been asked to 'bring the party' by running the campsite feed station and marshal 11 points nearby.

With knowledge from last year and more time to plan/prepare we should be able to have another cracking day supporting all the participants including again some of our own brave Harriers taking part.

Once again there will be the club competition which will be bigger and better.  As such we are looking for willing volunteers to help out on the day

We will provide food & drinks for all as last year and once again bring the music. Juniors can help too but to work on the feed station they must be 13+

 

Please bear in mind this is an all day commitment as we have to set up early, meeting at approx 8am and won't get stood down until the tail runner has been through approx 4.30pm.

Those that did this last year will (hopefully) vouch what a great day it was despite the weather and few hiccups ref volunteer packs but we have been reliably told they won't be an issue this year.

 

To get involved please let us know either

Our complete beginners group has just started

 

It is not too late to join the 23 people that started this week.

 

This week (24th April)  will be Run three mins, walk one min Repeat six times.

 

We meet Mondays (not bank holidays) and Wednesdays  at Rowley Park at 6:15pm on the lower car park. There is no need to preregister, no need to prejoin the club or even email us. Come along and meet us.

The group is open to anyone, if you have any medical history or you are unsure then please talk to your doctor before coming along.

During the first few sessions there will be advise on buying the right footware, so please don’t rush out and buy new shoes for the first session.

Your first session will consist of introductions, talk about our club, some basic rules, talk about kit and then the first session.

We will start with running and walking within Rowley Park on the edge of playing fields. The park isn’t totally flat but we start slowly and gradually build on this over the 17 weeks.

The plan is 17 weeks with 3 sessions a week:-

 

Monday night - 6-15pm Rowley Park

Wednesday night - 6-15pm Rowley Park

Friday or Saturday - we need you to commit to doing by yourself.
