SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Yvette Baker Trophy

A reminder to any SROC juniors that the Yvette Baker Trophy qualifying round is at Torver on Sunday. Sarah Watkins requests that you let her know if you are taking part so that she can make sure everybody has a start slot allocated. Anyone is welcome - some of our juniors at an England selection race - so SROC needs your help!

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) OMM

There were a number of SROC members that took part in the well publicised OMM event at the weekend. Jo Hamilton-Taylor has found an article that strikes a balance compared to the sensationalist reporting from the mainstream media. There is also a thread on the message board where you can share your 'experience' with everybody.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) A message from the Chairman

I would like to say a big thank you for coming and supporting the club, and putting in a highly creditable performance. Coming 7th is very good indeed, and perhaps it's a bit like the Olympics - the first time it's all new and strange, and you don't do your best performance - next time. . . ! The main thing is that we all enjoyed ourselves, see the photos in the Gallery. Let's hear your experiences on the message board - triumphs and disasters. And what were the funniest moments?

This day only went off so successfully because of the effort put in by some club members - notably Sarah Watkins our Club Captain and Steve Wilson - stats analyst extraordinaire! So a very big thank you to them.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) A Grand Day Out

Some of the South Ribble team
A coach load of South Ribble runners had a grand outing to Sutton Park today (19th October). The occasion was the Compass Sport Cup Final, hosted by OD. Many enjoyed their runs, but a few had nightmares of varying degrees. When the points were counted we had finished 7th, not bad for the first time at the final! Full results are available here.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Clitheroe Street League event 15th October

Last night saw the first street event of the season with over 40 SROC members and guests pounding the streets of Clitheroe, then tucking into massive portions of pie and peas arranged by the Ormerods. Results, league points and routegadget will shortly be posted on the website. In the meantime, there is already discussion on the message board. Because of half-term and Bonfire Night, note that there is just a week's gap until Event 2 (Chorley on 22 October), then a three week gap to Event 3 at Carnforth (November 12th).

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Ceilidh chaos and laughter

Seventeen SROC members had a great time at the Ceilidh on Friday 10th October, which was organised for Garstang Sports Clubs at Claughton Village Hall. If you thought that we got lost in the forest it was nothing to how we got lost in the middle of the dances - chaos and laughter ensuing! Some members (no naming and shaming) don't know their dosidos from their strip the willows. The photos show us taking fuel on board, gathering strength and energy for the next bout of activity. Definitely should be part of the circuit training on a Tuesday.
