However we are in urgent need of a team manager whose role would be to help with team selection and travel on the day to deal with the normal team issues. Experience of track and field athletics essential and an athlete who was willing to learn would be ideal as plenty of help would be available. Continue reading

NETLEY 10K

I would like to thank everyone who helped out at the race this year which ensured that it was another successful event and raised much needed funds for the club. There was a significant increase in support from the club and with the additional voluntary support from our friends at Itchen Spitfires we managed to ensure the race was fully marshalled.After 30 years organising this event the time has come for me to step down and for someone else to take over. Thank you to everyone who has supported me over the years Richie
