NEWS!

19th FEBRUARY 2021
WANT TO IMPROVE your running? Then keep reading! We’ve an exciting opportunity for club members to receive some specialist coaching from England Athletics. The training will be FREE & will focus on improving your 5/10K time. This is available to everyone at the club, of any standard.

However, because places are limited, we are asking anyone who puts their name forward to be available & make a FIRM COMMITMENT to:
  • Run a 'time trial' 5K or 10K, on a route of your choice, before the programme starts (between 8th - 14th March)
  • Attend ALL THREE coaching sessions (held via Zoom) at 7pm on 23rd March, 19th April & 11th May
  • Run your 5K/10K route again towards the end of the programme to measure your improvement

If this is of interest to you, please send an email to the RRR email account by 26th February. In your email please let us know whether you are targeting the 5K or 10K, with an indication of how much you would like to improve your time.  [Carl O'Callaghan]

WITH US ALL LOCKED UP again for several weeks, we thought we should join one of Colin Green's Saturday Virtual Quiz Nights. We've decided to go for Saturday 13th February & hope that we won’t ruin any romantic plans you may have. So get swotting, watch those romantic classics & brush up on love songs to be in with a chance of winning. We'll also be using this as an opportunity to raise money for RRR Charity of the Year for 2021 - TOG Mind. These quizzes usually run from 7pm to 9pm, with a break in the middle to take a break & replenish drinks, so keep your eyes peeled for login details which we’ll share closer to the time. Hope to see you there!  [Martina Naismith]

THE CLUB HAS BEEN CONTACTED by a PhD researcher from Anglia Ruskin University whose research is focused on those who require the use of spectacles & how these spectacles could impact their running gait. Georgia is wondering if any RRR members who fit the inclusion criteria would be willing to fill out her online survey. If you'd like to take part, you can find out more & access the survey via this link.  [David Emanuel]

7th JANUARY 2021
THE RRR ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING (AGM) will take place virtually via Zoom on the 29th January & an email with details of the agenda has been sent to all club members. If you have any business to add to the agenda, please submit via email by 22nd January.

Last year it was decided that anyone holding a committee or other formal role with RRR - with the exception of the honorary position of Club President - should be elected/re-elected on an annual basis, on the approval of members, at the AGM. This has always been the case for committee positions, but is now extended to cover all other roles, with the hope that this may encourage more members to take the opportunity to get involved in the running of the club. As a first step, if you are interested in putting your name forward for any of the positions shown in the attached document, please complete this short nomination form by 15th January 2021 at the latest. You will need to provide the names of two current members of RRR who have agreed to act as your 'proposer' and 'seconder'. Once your nomination form has been received you will be contacted with further information about the election process. If more than 1 person is nominated for any role, there will be a secret ballot of members to determine who is elected to that position for the 12 months following the AGM. If you have any questions about this process, or any of the roles, please speak to a current member of the RRR committee (contact details can be found on the Contacts/Officials page of this website).
