"Time to get involved!
If you would like to run for the club in the autumn relays please contact Sally Fawcett (womens teams) or email me (Rob Little, mens teams). There are opportunities for everyone in DPFR.Hodgson Brothers relay (Sun 1st Oct, Patterdale): 8 men needed for open team, 8 women needed for female open team, 8 men over 40 needed for vet team. Everyone needs to be over 16. The organisers allow only one 16-18 year old in an open team, who would have to run leg 1 with someone over 21.
British Fell Relay (Sun 15th Oct, Llanberis): 12 men needed for 2 open teams, 6 women for women's open team, 6 women over 40 for female vet team, 6 men over 40 for MV40 team and 6 men over 50 for MV50 team. (In previous years all runners in open team need to be over 18. I can't find any rules online for 2017 as yet). PLUS 6 other runners needed.
I have specifically entered another team to give extra chance for DPers to experience this national, large and fun (type 1 or 2 optional) event. I am particularly keen to give an opportunity to younger members of the club, newer members of the club and generally people who don't usually get such a chance. No one will be too slow for this team!
Please spread the word.
Sally and I hope to hear from many of you. Our contact details are in the club membership list and also the forthcoming club magazine. Please clearly identify yourself, especially if you have a 'cool' email address, and any indication on current fitness always useful."
