2015 Torness Christmas Handicap Race - Advance notice

Once again it is time to start organising a lunchtime Christmas race - 4 miles around the station taking in the two beaches, seawall etc.

The aim is principally to raise money for a charity to be selected by whoever raises or donates the most cash. As an added bonus you get the opportunity to assess fitness levels, settle old scores and burn off a few calories before the Christmas gluttony kicks in!  Participation subject to operational commitments, supervisor agreement etc. and competitors enter at their own risk.
Date to be confirmed, but most likely Thursday 17th Dec (Subject to Station Christmas lunch etc.). 

Fiona will contact us further early in December confirming the date and details. If you are considering running please let Anne know and I'll pass on your details so you're added to the distribution list for future notifications. Friends and family are welcome.
If anyone is available to help timekeep etc. your assistance will be much appreciated :o)

Updated Club Championship Scores

I've updated the Club Championship scores - not least because I now understand how the scoring works!

I had been under the misapprehension that 5k handicap wins, marshalling, ultras, etc were on top of the scores for your best 8 races, but that is not the case.  Those only count (cumulatively per category) as a "race", if they would make it into your best 8.  So, for example, if you had 6 marshalling points, those would count towards your overall score if you'd done 7 or fewer actual races, or the 6 points were better than the score for one of your 8 best actual races.  The marathon ladder, and the two ParkRun ladders count as "actual races".  Clear?! Good!

Touch of Tartan Half Marathon and 5K Kilt Run

The Perth 5k Kilt Run - where participants run a 5k route wearing a traditional kilt - is now in its fourth year, but thanks to the feedback from participants looking for a bigger challenge there is now the introduction of a half-marathon length route starting at Perth Aerodrome and finishing on the North Inch parkland in Perth. It's a mainly flat on and off road route set against a very pretty background, and rather than wearing a kilt, participants are being asked to don a touch of tartan.

Entry is now open at www.eventfull.biz

A range of activities being held in Perth, Scotland over the weekend of Saturday 8 August and Sunday 9 August. On the Saturday the events are based around our running and walking events including the 4th annual Perth 5k Kilt Run. There will also be a range of entertainment, music and fun for all the family throughout the day and into the evening. On Sunday the focus is Perth's traditional Highland Games event plus a great Touch of Tartan food event supported by local restaurants and eateries.

Each event will have a simple format; competitors will receive a map with the controls marked on it, and will be asked to match these with the traditional orientering kites. Start times will between 6-7pm. There may be a small entry fee to be paid on the day.

Wednesday 29th April - Prestongrange Museum and Morrison's Haven
Wednesday 20th May - North Berwick Lodge Grounds
