Dear friends at Southampton AC,
I’m writing as the organiser of the Thames Valley Harriers Open Graded Meeting on Wednesday 27th of April. We are running the event in conjunction with the British Milers’ Club and offering races over 300m, 800m, 1500m, and 3000m. We would be hugely grateful for your support in spreading the word of this event to the athletes at your amazing club!
We are trying to build an event which is more family-orientated and with a “festival-like” atmosphere. We will have music, food/refreshments, race photography, and fun and games for children, including face painting. All this whilst still hosting fast, paced races at the top end for spectators to enjoy!
I’ve attached the event flyer and timetable to this email.
We cannot thank you enough for considering to support this event and inform your club members of it, whether it be through newsletters or posts on social media platforms. The pandemic has been hard for club level athletics and if there is anything we can do to promote or support your club events do not hesitate to contact us.
Many thanks and see you out on the circuit soon!
Middle distance runner, Thames Valley Harriers
