I’m in need of a lift - is anybody able to pick me up from Royston train station (I’d be there in plenty of time) and drop me back in Letchworth? Please do note I’m going to be way north of the hour running though (I’m aware this route has hills) so you wouldn’t be able to do a quick getaway 😀.
I have sorted a lift now - whooo hoo.
I am looking for a lift from Fairfield to Royston and back? I would greatly appreciate it.
I will have spaces for anyone going from hitchin (sorry Rachel, I probably don't have tine to come over to Fairfield!).
I owe Linda a lift so will have a couple of spaces spare.
I need to bring my son along on Thursday. Is there anyone who is going to be there, who is not running, who would be willing to keep an eye on him during the race? He's 9 and no trouble. I'll be as quick as I can (which should go without saying in the circumstances, but you know what I mean).
Hey Ed. My girlfriend is coming to the race and is more than happy to keep an eye on your son.
I'm still a bit crocked (though getting better!) so will be happy to do finish line duties if required.
Barbara's going to look after him at hers, so I now won't need to bring him along, but thank you very much (and to your girlfriend) - it's much appreciated!
Unfortunately I don't think I'll be able to make it to the next 3 MWL races due to childcare responsibilities and lack of time getting home from work picking up my son and taking him to the race with me.
If I can make arrangements with friends I'll be there. If not I may be able to leave work early. In that case could I bring him with me one week? He's 11 and chilled enough to wait for me and keep an eye on our stuff. :)
I can pick you up / drop you back as i'm going from Henlow. I'll confirm times once I know if i'm taking anyone else.
Thank you so much!
My mobile no is 07387736417
I will be going from Letchworth and happy to offer lifts there and/or back if needed. Small car so max 3 passengers in comfort but I can take 4 at a squeeze!
I'd like to run on Thursday at the MWL in Royston but I don't yet have a number as its my first time and I didn't catch you today.
Are you able to provide me with a number on the day? I am a fully paid up club member with a running vest. If so, should I meet you at Spirella on Thursday or at the event?
Ellie usually brings the numbers with her to the race, I would suggest you look out for her when you arrive to pick up your number,I hope this helps.
I am coming along to support (niggly foot issue at the moment). Could I get a lift with you? Can meet you at Spirella / station / central Letchworth as you wish.
Rachel, I’m going from Fairfield. I’m meeting others at Spirella at 6:45 so can pick you up at 6:30.
Thanks Sue V, Ellie has already contacted me separately re the numbers.
All, I'm planning on going straight from Fairfield Park to the event (as my time is tight due to work) so if anybody needs a lift from the estate or wants to share, please let me know.
Just heard that the cricket ground where we normally park is waterlogged so will not be available for cars. Apparently there is a car park near the start but not sure where. Car sharing will help massively !!
Thanks, Andrew. See you at Spirella.
