With only 4 weeks to go I felt it prudent to brief you with some updates so far.
We have filled the race with 1760 entries. There will now be a flurry of transfers taking place. I anticipate 1500 runners on the day.
Our teams have been picked. They were selected by our team Captains based on current form, appearances for the club in the cross country and mid week league and attendance on training nights.
(One big lesson from this year is we need to be more transaprent about these selection criteria much earlier)
We also have two runners who were selected through our ballot. The criteria for this is much simpler. If you help out at Standalone this year, in whatever way, your name goes into a ballot for next year. We select a minimum of 2 names. If we can select more we will.
The teams are as follows.
Jim Marvel and Naomi Parkinson were selected from the ballot.
We wish them all well in the race.
Why does the men's team have double the number of people than the women's team.
Do we not have any other female runners wanting to run?
I was wondering the same thing ....:thinking_face:
I assume that as there is more than 50% men selected to run as the women in our club, it will be reflected in the same ratio for the hard working marshals!
