Stuc a' Chroin 5000 Hill Race May 4th 2013

From Steve Respinger : Just to keep you posted about the Stuc a'
Chroin 5000 race on May 4th 2013 (aka Star Wars Day!). You might be
aware that this is our 25th Anniversary, and this year, to commemorate
this, we're proud to be hosting the Scottish Athletics Championship
Race, and one of the two Scottish Hill Runners Long Championship
Races. We're upping the number of prizes to runners this year, and
also, along with our current £2,500 worth of prizes, there'll be the
prizes, medals etc associated with Scottish Athletics and Scottish
Hill Runners.

This is a special day in the calendar for both us and many of the
runners, and we'd like, this year especially, for the race to be run
with minimum complications and for all the runners to have a great day
with no problems.

As we're expecting an increase in numbers this year, there may be a
few runners that haven't run the race before, and so, closer to the
event, we'll email again to make you aware of any points that your
members may find useful pre or post-race, for example roadworks,
registration etc. Please forward this or any subsequent email from us
to them for their information as you think fit.

We're hoping for ideal weather for the runners and the marshals,
(well, you have to be optimistic!) and a really great day, and look
forward to seeing you all.

Please feel free to email me at stuc5000@gmail.com if you have any
queries, and I'll do my best to answer them. Don't forget to visit the
web site www.stucachroin5000.org.uk for up to date information before
the race.

Cheers, and May the 4th be with you

Steve
