As the Guidance from England Athletics stands at the moment we are not able to continue with our normal programme of Sunday social runs for the senior members.
Hopefully , this will only be a temporary issue . In the mean time if you are missing your regular mud paddle, why not take advantage of the Route Map library to down load one of the routes either as a PDF or to your wearable tech (Christmas present ?). There are a few new ones. There are easily adapted to suit requirements.
It would be good to build on this library , so if you have a favourite route – road or trail – why not share it . Happy to help or go direct to Matt Channer and cut out the middle man !
Happy New Year
This year the Bran Tub Relay will not be happening as normal but 70 Chiltern athletes divided into 15 teams have entered a virtual version with a competition window from 21st to 30th December.
Athletes should send in their times to Steve Perkin at email@example.com
Results to be published on New Years Eve.
DOWNLOAD TEAMS FOR THE VIRTUAL BRAN TUB RELAY
With Hervines Pavilion closed and social distancing a priority we will, unfortunately, not be able to hold the Bran Tub Relay as normal this year.
However, we are instead having a Virtual Bran Tub Relay which athletes can attempt over the Christmas period.
Katie Royals has kindly created a google entry form . Please use this to enter and insert an approximate time for 1500m (the Bran Tub course is 1450m).
Closing date for entries is Friday 18th December.
Over that weekend I will divide up the entries into, hopefully, evenly matched teams of five (or other multiple depending on the number of entries) with the help of other coaches.
I will publish these so athletes can see who is in their teams
Athletes should attempt the course between Monday 21st December and Wednesday 30th December. I will try and get results out on New Years Eve.
Please feel free to send me photos that I can add to the club website along with my report.
For those that haven’t taken part before the course begins at the bollards at the end of Devonshire Avenue. It follows Devonshire Avenue and turns right along the main Chesham Road, before taking a sharp right into Hervines Road. The finish is level with the right hand bollard back towards Hervines car park.
Those with strava or other GPS facility can use that, others can use a coach, parent or friend to time them. I live nearby and am happy to pop up to time athletes.
Athletes could opt to run together but in very small groups only please.
Coaches - please forward to your groups.
Please let me know if you have any queries.
Members will remember the Chiltern Way exercise looking at the future management of the Club.
The committee have continued working on this initially in conjunction with England Athletics and have produced a Vision for the Club incorporated into a Development and Action Plans for the period to the end of 2024.
Progress has been slowed by the constraints of the pandemic which has taken away the EA resources on furlough. Nevertheless, progress has been made to ensure the Club maintain high standards of governance and member experience. Once more progress has been made further updates will be circulated.
In the mean time if any member would like to see copies of the Plans please let me know via firstname.lastname@example.org or if you would like to offer much needed help in the running of the Club please contact Trevor Davies on email@example.com.
We wanted to give you an update on this year’s Social Event & Awards Evening.
You will probably be unsurprised to know that it is unlikely that we will be able to go ahead on 4 July, as that will be the first day that our venue - Amersham & Chiltern Rugby Club - might be able to host us in accordance with the Government’s Covid-19 Recovery Strategy.
After a short break from #HarriersChallenges, we've come up with two absolutely great ones for you to get stuck into. Given we think you'll want to take a little longer to think through / perfect your entries for these ones, you have until 1159 PM on Sunday 21 June to submit your entries. Read on...
Next weekend's #HarriersChallenge will be in honour of #VEDay75.
Well, we’ve had the musical edition, the Easter edition, the home-schooling edition… it was about time we had the cheeky edition ;-)
So this week, we want to know what you’re up to during lockdown. Whether that be running, baking up a storm, building a wall or alphabetising your music collection, we want to see you doing it in your Club kit.
For those of you who follow the Club's social media accounts, you will have seen that Harriers have been back to school this week, completing Katie Royals' home-schooling challenge!
22 Harriers joined in. Each were allotted a letter to 'draw' on Strava / Garmin Connect and then asked to post the results. As letters appeared, people guessed at what the mystery phrase could be.
After a great response we can reveal that the phrase was:
