St Albans 10k: 11th May 2014: We are a large enough club that we should have no difficulty providing marshals for all of our races. However, every time we have a race people leave it to the last minute before volunteering to help, which frankly makes life hell for our marshals coordinator, Pete Blackaller. It would be great if a few more people would put something back into the club by assisting with races that we host. After all, we all get enough out of the club for an annual fee which is well below what most other clubs charge. Please see Pete's post re marshalling and please help him by volunteering to help. Rant over. Thanks.

I've just spotted on the forum that there's a pub run on Saturday: "Our pub runs are on the last Saturday monthly, starting at 10.30 a.m. from The Elephant & Castle pub in Amwell, near Wheathampstead. There is normally a run over country routes of up to 6/7/8 miles at a "conversational" pace before we return for lunch at the pub at midday. As well as this run, there will be a run at an even more modest pace of 11/12 minute miling over 4/5 miles (depends on who turns up) to suit newcomers to running and slower runners as well as those returning from injury or treatment. Everyone is welcome whether they join us just for a run, just for a drink/lunch or go for the full package - the emphasis is on the social nature of these events! Directions: From St Albans take the B651 (Sandridge Road) towards Wheathampstead. After you leave Sandridge and the speed limit changes from 40 to national, you'll come to a sign for a crossroads. Take the left turn into Ferrers Lane and then first right into Down Green Lane. About half a mile up the hill, turn right at the crossroads into Amwell Lane and the pub is on the left. For SatNav purposes,the postcode is AL4 8EA"

Dear Folks. So this is a just a wee message to say that unfortunately due to my work load just now, I will not have the time to do tea night in May, as this also coincides with the week of the SAS 10K. I'm just posting this in case anyone else would like to cover it for me, otherwise I will play it by ear for the forthcoming months and try to do as and when I can, or get appropriate cover. Apologies, but PhD. has to take priority for now. Thanks all xx

Marshals needed for St Albans 10k - Sunday, 11th May It’s just six weeks now till the St Albans 10k on Sunday 11th May and we need volunteers for marshalling and to help out on the day. Help will be needed from about 07:30 at the race HQ and then for marshalling from 08:45. We expect that the race should all be over by 11:30. If you are able to help out could you please send me your contact details; name, email and mobile along with any preference for role or location, to marshals@stalbansstriders.com. I will be in touch with all volunteers nearer the day. Thanks in advance to all those who volunteer and enable us to put on safe and successful race.

Hi all, as the park has pretty much dried up now we'll be using the normal parkrun course unless stated otherwise. Cheers! Doug
