England Athletics CEO visits F1CC...

England Athletics came to visit us and wrote this nice article:

It’s 6:15 pm on a cold Tuesday evening in November and most people are leaving Nottingham city centre by bus, tram, car or train after a hard day’s work or a spot of shopping. They’re probably heading home for an evening meal or maybe for a night in front of the TV.

What they’re probably not doing, is running the mile and a half to the city’s Forest Recreation Ground for a combination of hill running, squat thrusts, press ups and a range of other exercises. But that’s precisely what the members of Formula One Circuit Crew are doing, and they wouldn’t have it any other way.

British double leg amputee and Paralympic Gold medallist, Richard Whitehead, is running a marathon a day this summer from John O'Groats to Land's End, championed by Virgin Media, in order to raise money for Sarcoma UK and Scope.
The run starts on August 13th and finishes around September 23rd – by which time Richard will have covered a staggering 977 miles (1572km).

National Triathlon Relays

Loads of club members involved in racing and marshalling at the National Club Triathlon relays at Holme Pierrepont. Great day out and the damp weather didn’t put us off.

As ever some cracking performances not least in the Ladies race where Fez, Lou, Amy combined with TFN’s Lucy Gossage to win in fine style.

El turn-out magnifico

Great turn out for Summer League Race 2 last week. Results are below, hopefully haven'y missed anybody out. Some cracking times again heard a few mentions of possible PB's by a few people afterwards so "well done" to anyone who managed to get one.

Special dis-honourable mentions to Andy F and Curly Dave for only showing up for the chip cob and beer afterwards!

Next race - Wednesday June 16th at Erewash (Friesland School) 19:15 start.
