Run Britain Handicap Scheme
Each time you take part in a runbritain/UKA licensed race you can have your time included in calculating your free runbritain handicap score. More than 73,000 runners of all standards have now claimed their runbritain handicap score. As well as giving you a current score, between scratch and 36.0, your free personalised running biography page includes your current national ranking by age band and postcode, your position on the national ladder, your progress graph, your strongest distance, a head-to-head comparison with other runners and downloadable training schedules to improve your score next time you race. Your handicap score also updates automatically every time you complete a licensed event. To claim your score now, click on http://www.runbritainrankings.com/user/claimhandicap.aspx.
We need team captain(s) for the various club competitions and events that we enter such as Summer League, Cross Country, Christmas relays, Ed Prickett Memorial Relays, Bramley Challenge etc. (but not Thunder run). It will involve getting the events listed in the newsletter/Facebook/website in good time so that club members can participate, facilitating car sharing, communicating details in the lead up to the event and the maybe on the day. It is not essential that you take part in the events yourself.
If you are able to take on one or more of these events, or want to discuss it, contact Jeremy Reichelt (firstname.lastname@example.org)

NOTTS A.A.A. COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIPS
This is a series of events open to runners either born in the county or with 9 months continuous residence in the county immediately prior to the race.
The series comprises races over 5 different distances; 5k, 10k, 10 mile, half marathon, and full marathon. There are gold, silver and bronze medals for all age categories in each race, and as there are not always many entrants, particularly in the older age groups, there are real chances for NOTFAST runners to pick up a medal!
Entry is free and is made by ‘ticking the box’ on the form/website. The exception is the marathon where there is no box and entrants must write to Peter Tatton. No entries are allowed on the day, and club colours must be worn.
