Peak Rail 7 Race Organisation

3 months 2 weeks ago - 2 months 3 weeks ago #3181 by JamesT
It's only 2 weeks to go now until race day on Easter Monday so it's time to start putting the final details to the race planning. It's a 200 runner sell-out race, the 7 carriage train is full, we've taken out an annual subscription to the electronic timing system we've been using for the 10k handicap so we can use multi-devices to try and look slick and Andy's done a great job in developing Anglo-Sino trade links in getting the race memento and numbers sorted.

We are going to need about 25 volunteers to get the event to run smoothly. I already have a few names, so if you're free and able to spare a few hours that will be great. All Marshals will receive a coffee/tea plus bacon cob at the Marshals meeting and subject, to numbers, we are hoping to have enough Peak Rail 7 running buffs to give to every Marshal. So you get the same as the runners without doing the 7 miles!!!! Also if you've entered the race can you let me know who will be volunteering for you?

Here are the Marshaling points we need to cover:
