As well as reminding you to try and get members of your clubs to take part in the above event, we are looking for those that would be willing to help officiate at the race.  This would be nothing difficult and could be any of the following:

Time keepers and recorders, number recorders and callers, results runners (taking results from finish to computer operator {about 200m} to speed up results process), help at Registration (giving out envelopes containing numbers to team managers).  In all we will need about 12 people.

So if any runners will have friends family that are coming along to support and would be willing to help, that would be great - similarly anyone unable to run but willing to help.

Also any runners in Race 3 (M35 – 49) that would be willing to come early and help out during Race 1 / 2 are also welcome.

Most of the YVAA Committee will be in Race 1 / 2 so could take over once they are finished.

Many thanks,

Rob Kersey, YVAA Secretary
