Training re-starts this week
We begin to prepare for the 2022 summer season this week when we have our first Thursday evening session on October 7. 6.30 to 7.30 under the floodlights at Imberhorne Upper School. In particular we look forward to seeing a number of our school year 6 athletes who were part of our academy during the summer.
As with all our autumn and winter sessions athletes should wear clothing suitable to the weather – this will be especially so when we get some of those cold winter nights which will require warm clothing. But the weather forecast for this Thursday looks OK.
Sunday morning sessions at East Court will be starting on Sunday October 17 – sessions starting at 10.30 for an hour.
Primary Schools cross-country races on Sunday October 10 at East Court – help needed
We are responsible for organising the East Grinstead primary school cross-country races which will take place on this coming Sunday October 10. We ask our club members (and parents) to support this event by helping us on the day.
In particular we need help to get the course ready in the morning – if you have some spare time between 9.30 and 12.30 then come along and help us getting things ready. If you have spare time between 1 and 4 then come along to help with the running of the races. If you have free time all day long then come along for the day – don’t forget to bring a lunch with you.
Of course some of our year 6 athletes will be taking part in the races – some of you will have brothers and sisters taking part, and of course some of you older readers will have children or even grandchildren taking part.
The first of these races took place in 1978 and the athletes then ran on what we know as Beeching Way – but no dodging of cars because the road was not then open to the public. However since then the races have taken place at East Court every year – well every year except for the virus year in 2020.
