- Make an Entry. It is not too late to get in your entries for previous months.
- Entries so far. Includes all entries made until 12th December.
We had a flurry of entries in November thanks mainly to the Bicton Blister and Lite but with just 3 months to go we now have 13 hardy souls remaining in the Mighty Green Ambassador challenge. There are lots of Xmas events to boost December figures so don those muddy trainers and make the most of the opportunity to be seen in red instead of the usual green!
If you’ve forgotten to record previous events don’t worry it’s not too late- just complete the form. However Hamish would be delighted if you could report your run straight after your race as this helps him with his Sidmouth Herald reports.
If you want to start 2019 as you mean to go on you can run on New Years Day with park run events at Exmouth and Killington.
What is it all about? The aim is for all club members to represent SRC at least once every month by taking part in a running event or by representing SRC as a volunteer at a race or social event. Each event only counts once (different park runs are counted as different events) and although the aim is for one each month you only need to collect 10 over the 12 month period (2 months allowed for holidays or injury). However only one event per month counts towards the 10.
