Ellesmere Port 5K info

Good afternoon all,
 
Next Saturday 18th October 2014 there will be a first time Park Run in Ellesmere Port. Runs are all 5k, free to enter and start at 9am each week. You have to pre- register via the Park Run web-site, obtain a bar code which you print off and carry with you during the race. This is then "zapped" at the end and your time is recorded. Simple as that. The Ellesmere Port run starts in Whitby Park and all details of this can be found via the events page on the Park Run web site  If not able to run you can always volunteer to help.

Well Done Racers!

Well done to all the BAC runners out in races today.
Mary, Brunhild, Chris and Margaret at the Wirral Half
Dave running an Ultra marathon in London
Lesley, Maria, Sally and Norman running the Flint 10k. They said the Flint 10k was hilly. The first hill was like Moel Fammau and the second was like Snowdonia but a brilliant race in brilliant conditions. Well done all.

Norman,

 

Sadly Missed

It is with deep sadness that I have to inform you all that our friend and colleague Andy Gardner passed away last night. Mr nice guy Andy will be sadly missed. The world is a better place for knowing him but a sadder place for losing him.

Norman

Without Andy's hard work an dilligence, BAC would not have the website that it does today.

GodBless Andy

Birkenhead AC Website.

As some of you will know we had been unable to update the running club website for some time. The club has now purchased software for the club website, and we will now be able to move things forward again in regards to the site. SO PLEASE DO start feeding any race results, pictures and information to Norman, Andy and Myself, and we will start populating the site for 2014. Also we now have the Club Facebook page which is great, and will also be used to update you with club news! I will be working on the website over the next few months updating it, so please bear with me.

Safety Announcement

Yesterday afternoon a runner was involved in a collision with a car at Spital Cross Roads. He is in a bad way. With the onset of Winter please start wearing light coloured clothing. If you have to run listening to music just use 1 earpiece, that way you can still hear what is happening around you.

TAKE CARE Norman.
