I know that at this time of year, many clubs are putting together the fixtures for their annual Club Championships. Can I ask your committees to please consider including the West District Championship road races in support of your fellow clubs? The two races confirmed so far are both excellent and very highly recommended. They are:-
- Tom Scott 10-mile race, Sunday 10 April (hosted by Law & District)
- Brian Goodwin Memorial 10k, Friday 17 June (hosted by Bellahouston Harriers). This sells out – get entries in pronto!
- (The WD Half-Marathon race is still TBC).
I would also like to take this opportunity to introduce a brand new event on to your radars. The Kilmarnock “Roon The Toon” 10k will take place on Sunday 12 June 2016 (draft flyer attached). Entries will open in January and it is likely to sell out, but Ian Gebbie of Kilmarnock Harriers (cc’d above if you want to contact him) will reserve places for any clubs who want to put it in their championships. Check out www.roonthetoon.com once it goes live in January.
Lastly, as you know, it is the West District Cross Country Championships on Sunday 6 December, very kindly hosted by Bellahouston Road Runners. It would be extremely helpful if some volunteers would put themselves forward to help with course-building and dismantling on the day, and also to help out as marshals. Please can any willing volunteers get in touch with Brian O’Donnell or Henry Merriweather of Bellahouston Road Runners (cc’d above) to offer their help? It would be hugely appreciated.
Many thanks and kind regards
Convenor, West District Road Running & Cross Country Commission
