London Marathon 2017 Ballot

Hi members

We will hopefully secure our usual club entry for the 2017 London Marathon over the next couple of weeks.

Any fully paid up club member who entered the public ballot this year and attempted to obtain a place via good for age, etc but receives a rejection letter/e-mail from London can enter the club ballot. Those successful in the club ballot will then be given the necessary information to make race payment to the London organisers.

If you want to be entered in the ballot at the November committee meeting, you must let a committee member see your rejection letter/e-mail prior to this date and follow this up with an e-mail to me to confirm.

Many thanks and good luck!
Lesley

Running forum with Marco & Debbie Consani – 22nd November

Hi all,

Marco Consani and his wife Debbie Martin-Consani – a couple who not only run, but do so over some incredible distances and times. Having started off the same way as most of us did, Debbie saw the adverts for the women’s 10k in Glasgow. Thinking to herself that this seemed like a bit of a challenge she set about training for 10k, the rest as they say is history. SO who started who on this amazing journey?

Glasgow and Garscube Harriers Team GB Ultra-Marathoning couple will be providing a question and answer session at Springburn Harriers running forum on Tuesday 22nd November 2016 at Allan Glen’s Rugby Club, Bishopbriggs at 7.45pm.

Take the opportunity to find out how it all started, what makes them tick, what are those golden nuggets of both training and competitive endurance that gets you through the most gruesome of times. Questions can be submitted in advance to here.

Many thanks
Lesley
