Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to assist with marshaling on Wednesday.We will be marshaling the Fairlands Lakes part of the course.
As the race starts at 7.45pm we need to be in position at 7.30pm so that Jo, Zone Commander 2, can give the thumbs up for the race to start.
We also need to ensure that the water station in the park is set.
So, the marshal briefing will be at 7pm in the large car park off Six Hills Way. There is no post code. For you Park Runners, its the main PR car park. Jo will be doing the briefing.
It may appear a bit early but it gives time for a bit of faffing, chatting and difficult questions.
The main 3 points to be covered before positions are given out are.
1. Looking after yourself. It will be warm. Bring a hat and sun glasses. Bring water and a chair if required.
2. Communications. Make sure your mobile phone is fully charged, on and with noise.
3. Be positive. Both with directions, actions and how you respond with a casualty. You will have an emergency contact sheet with medical details on.
Hi Dickie - is that the car park just before the cafe and boat houses and stuff?
Hi Dickie, do you have the list of marshalls that you need for weds. I'm happy to Marshall but if you have enough marshalls I would quite like to run. Thanks.
Its the big one near the entrance off 6 Hills Way.
You are not on my list. Run fast and free.
Dickie, I am not planning to run now (minor hamstring issue), so am available to help. I might not get away from work very promptly, but could perhaps help at the start / finish?
Dickie put me down for Marshaling start/finish or other- Markd
Sorry, for late notice, but I'm now available for marshalling if needed.
James and Ed,
Please can you help me at the start.
I volunteered to marshal then last week we were told Blue and Green groups were running.
Am I a runner or a marshal?
I don't mind which - I just need to bring appropriate shorts and trainers or flip flops ;-)
Zone commander here - bring midge repellent or clothes to cover skin, it can be midge hell out there xxx
Zone commander - you are wise well beyond your years. Midge repellent just put in my car. First time for everything.
You are a marshal. 7pm car park in fair lands lakes off 6 hills way.
Hi dickie. Am I marshalling or running please ?
Yes will help at start.
Is there a list of who is marshalling somewhere, am I marshalling?
Whooop! Flip flops it is then :grinning:
Hi Christine and Ally,
Yes you are both marshaling. Please can you be at Fairlands Lakes at 7pm for a briefing by Jo.
It is the entrance of Six Hills Way.
We need more marshals than planned because of the hot weather. I am trying to have two water stations.
Am I running or marshalling please? Need to know so I come appropriately attired ......
Hi, I am able to get away from work to help tonight. May be a bit late getting over but I can help with a water station if required.
I'm heading over now to help Marshall will be there at 7.15.
