10 more people are required so we can get a coach. I know there are a few of you that have said you can come, if you could put your name down on the list that would be great. We can then set up payment details for the coach. Thank you!! — Sally Haycock
We estimate the coach cost at £15 per person.

Ironman Harriers Volunteer Group
Staffordshire Ironman 11th June 2023.
Steve McHugh has produced an information pack for people that have planned to help us run a feed station.
It contains plenty of information and it is recommended that you take the time to read it.
I recommend that everyone take note of the road closures and plan your time of arrival to suit your mode of transport.
Harrier members that want run in the Showground Relays
It is not long until the Showground Relays. For those that have recently joined us, it is a great event. You run in teams of four and each leg is 2 miles.
If you want to run but don’t have a team of four, we can help. Put your name down below and we will put you into teams. The cost is £7.50 each.
If you have a team of four the online entry system is open.

Volunteers for Showground Relays 14th June 2023
Preparations for this year’s event are progressing well.
This is the second official running event we hold. There is a massive amount of work to do, Ian Hodkinson our Race Director has been busy getting all the official paperwork in place.
To prepare for the event, the Tuesday night speed session will take place at the showground.
To put on this event we will need your help. We have to build the course and get the registration tent ready, in the evening we will need marshalls to guide the runners and to ensure a safe and successful event.
The event is open to up to 400 teams and so there could be 1600 runner and their spectators.
We hope that you will come and join us whether it is to help, marshall, run, or a combination of roles.
To help us in our organisation please can indicate in the message box your availability (all day, from 5 pm, evening) and if you have a specific role you want (or want to avoid).
