Dear BJ members,
if you have an opportunity please print out a few Cliveden XC 2014 – press link to download – postal application forms (traditional way) or flyer (if your audience is likely to have a smartphone/is tech savvy) and distribute them at your work place, running friends, gym, post office, sports shop, etc.
Much appreciated and thanks in advance!
Also don’t forget Alan is looking for volunteers to distribute these on Sunday in Henley!
Well done to everybody who raced at Hand Cross XC – good turn out and as you can see from the photos nice weather!
Results updated here.
See you all at the next race and hopefully a few first timers too!
All, please find below update from Russel of the first Staggered Jog of the new season with a new starting point from the Club House – well done to everybody!
The Result spreadsheet can be found in its usual place under Club Championship.
Congratulations to 11-year old Mark Stringer for an A T P B and the best personal performance this month for which he wins the Staggered Jog Trophy. Congratulations also to Natalie Zinc for an A T P B. Many thanks to Eric Abbott and John Davies for help with time-keeping also to John Monaghan, John Irwin and Bob Engel for help with marshalling. Special mention to Nell Neale who acted as tail-end-Charlie/Charlotte to ensure no lost runners on the first run from the Cricket Club.
The next SJ will be held on Sunday 29th December starting at 10.00hrs. Please register from 09.15 and well before 10.00 to avoid congestion at the start. Since a large turnout is anticipated from this new venue additional help (3 persons) will be needed to ensure accurate timing between 10.45 and 11.15. In the meantime much successful and healthy running to all.

All,as you might have heard at the AGM it was agreed to test out for many reasons a new starting point for the Staggered Jog for a trial period before a final decision is made in regards to this change of start/finish point.
ALL MEMBERS are encouraged to turn up and participate on a fun event taking a route through Burnham Beeches – slow and fast / casual or serious – all are welcome!
Sunday 24th November
Registration at: 9:30 am
Race start (staggered) from: 10:00 am
Fee: 1,- Pound
Starting and Finishing at the Club House (Cricket Ground)
Hope to see many of you there – unless you decide to participate in the Cross Country.
Any questions please speak to John M or any of the committee members.
Updated XC Club results available here.
The event is held at Hawley Common. The course is a good one. It is just over 5 miles through woodland and heath. There are some hills, as well as sand and plenty of mud! Trail shoes are advised and if your runners wish to wear them, the course is also suitable for spikes.
There are no toilets or changing facilities (although you can park quite close to the start).
Please note: you are NOT allowed to penetrate the ground with tent pegs, flags etc. This has come directly from the MoD, so would appreciate you all following this guideline.
There will also be a £1 fee per car for the car park, so please ensure your runners/supporters bring change with them. Again, we have to pay the MoD, so this will be going back to them.
Directions to the venue can be found here www.sandhurstjoggers.org.uk/2-SiteLinks/CrossCountry/Directions/Hawley-L…
Please chat to Liz or Ben if you need further information or myself. Meet in the car park at 10.30 to collect your race number from Patricia and Oliver Keene – Bring safety pins . Team photo at 10.45.
