A huge thank you to Charlotte Lattin to delivering an informative talk about Injury Prevention to all the runners last night. Making it fun and with practicals and tips, I'm sure we will all love our foam rollers again after learning that we only need to spend 2mins after a run to relase the muscles to help. If you would like to book an appointment or would like to ask Charlotte a question please contact her on http://www.charlottelattinmassage.com For more information on classes, treatments or 1:1 PT sessions please call 07725 334604, email charlottelattin@btinternet.com - Charlotte is offering £5 off your first treatment

The Ridgeway challenge- Volunteers needed

  • Posted on: 19 July 2017

Dear Didcot Runners,

As some of you may be aware over the August bank holiday the club has for several years been involved with the Ridgeway Challenge and this year will be no different.

The Ridgeway Challenge (http://ridgewaychallenge.com/index.html) is an beautiful 86 mile Ultra-marathon from Ivinghoe Beacon to Avebury Stone Circle and this year there will be over 150 runners including our very own Paul Griffiths, Dave Knopp and Mike Suggate. The brave ladies and gent will have between 24 – 26 hours to complete the race with zero change to sleep and whatever rest they can get at one of the 9 checkpoints along the way.

Each of these checkpoints relies solely on volunteers and have vital supplies for the runners such as food, water, first aid, baggage drop and shelter. Tim the event organiser as asked us to man Goring Village Hall on Saturday August 26th. This is probably the busiest check point as it provides warm food and drink, indoor toilets, a chance to get changed in to fresh clothes, and is the half ways point in the race so people tend to retire here if they don’t feel they can make it.

So what am I asking for? The check point needs at least 16 volunteers to man the station between the hours of 4.30pm and 12.00am.

What will we be doing? Volunteers will be responsible for preparing food and drinks, checking runners in and out of the hall, sorting out baggage and marshalling the road outside.

Having run the race myself I can not stress how important these checkpoints are and without the help of Didcot Runners Tim will have a hard time manning this checkpoint. So if you are free on the evening of Saturday the 26th please let me know (email: danielfisher_zero@live.com) and together we can help some fellow runs complete a monumental task.

 

Kind Regards,

Dan.
