For those that could not make the recent meeting regarding the Floodlights.  

The Floodlights have been passed by the membership to purchase from clubs funds.  
There will be a fee (agreed by the membership) for all members taking part in the Thursday night
training sessions, charges as follows:
In paid employment
£2 per session
£75 per annum

Not in payed employment/youth/retired

Multiple members of the same family
If two or more members from the same family partake in a training session at the same time, only
one set of charge will be applicable.
The fee's stated above will start as soon as the Floodlights are available.
Is it that time again?
Its the only thing that keeps me sane, I maintain
Yes, its 7 O'Clock
I eagerly put my key in the lock

We are all set and eager to run
Putting our trainers on and lets go have some fun!
Its warm up time for a few laps
Lets hope we all can run fast without any mishaps

There's Lee, John, Dennis to name but a few
And Andy telling us what to do
Michelle, Louise and Debs going so fast
And Emma fighting with Suzy not to be last.

Gareth and Darren are so speedy
They leave us all feeling queasy
Lets not forget the others too
Who train so hard to win through

A big thank you to our coach
Lets keep running as I can see Mel on the approach

Lets keep trying to make Clowne Runners proud
As Les continues to shout 'dig deep' so loud
We are all doing so great
Lets keep working within our heart rate!

Thanks to Alice for the Poem!

Clowne RR 30th Anniversary
Dear Member

2014 marks the 30th anniversary of our running club and as a result of this a small group of us felt we
should really like to celebrate this milestone of the history of Clowne Road Runners.  

As the club has grown into what it is now approaching 150 members it has become harder to do
things on the spur of the moment so please bear with us as we try to prepare things for what we hope
will be a great day for you and the whole club.

Obviously we would like to give you an event which  will offer you the chance to run as this is the
thing that has brought us altogether in the first place and what binds the club together.  So after a few
discussions about what was possible and what would suit the current membership we have decided
we would like to organise a run/walk route of 30 miles starting at a venue in the Peak District to
which you will be transported via bus, and finish at our base the Clowne Community Centre.  We
hope the day will be a challenge but also great 'fun' and a chance for all members to become even
closer as a group. Bearing this in mind we would we have felt it necessary to offer a shorter 15 mile
route for members who feel 30 miles is just to far.  This will start at Ashgate Hospice which will play
a key role in our days plans which incidentally will be the half way point for the full 30 mile route.  
Over the last couple of years we have forged a strong link with Ashgate Hospice and feel the day
would be a wonderful opportunity to raise funds for this most worthy and vital charity.  

We will ask each member or member of their family a £10 (£5 for under 16's) fee which will cover
transportation and evening buffet etc. We would also like to ask all members taking part to raise £30,
a pound for each year we have been in existence.  In doing this we will be able to make a really
positive donation to such a worthy cause.  The day will conclude with a meal, drinks and further
celebration to mark something that is a fantastic milestone amongst fantastic people.

As an organising committee we really hope this is a challenge that many of you will like to take on,
with enthusiasm and that typical Clowne Road Runner spirit.

As I'm sure you will appreciate we could do with an indication on who will be taking part, what
distance you will be doing and if you will be turning up for the after event get together.  No financial
commitment at this stage but will you please email me back with the following:


Name & Age of your family member(s) taking part (if applicable):

Choose Distance:
30Mile (from Hathersage) or 15 Mile (from Ashgate Hospice) or 2 Mile (from Dobbies @

Run or Walk your chosen distance?

This will give us an idea for general interest, logistics and help budget for this event.

Many thanks and we hope we can count on your support on what will be an excellent day.  Should
you have any questions please contact one of the 30th Anniversary Organising Committee:
Andy Ward
Les Banton
Simon Sleney
Steve Hattersley

Many Thanks,
Andy, Les, Simon & Steve
