Have your say

It has now been a year since I took over as head coach and i have really enjoyed this role working along side first Amanda and now Sarah, also having Andy and Dave available to coach, I would now like some feedback from you on how you think things have gone.
I would like to know anything you like/enjoy about the sessions or anything you dislike, including coaching methods, as we are all different in our own way. I have tried to pull the club in a different direction by bringing the different paced groups closer together, this maybe to your liking or not but please do let me know as this is your chance to have your say.


Also if you have any further ideas that you wish me to include in sessions, I would really like to hear from you.
The 5k TT and hills of Haslemere  have been popular and well attended, and I am planning on keeping these on the calendar. What i would like though is to have some volunteers to marshal the crossing, as it seems the same people marshal the crossing every month. It would be nice if they could occasionally run the TT themselves, therefore, I would like some other members to volunteer for the remaining dates of the 5k TT, which are
Jan 25th
Feb 22nd
March 29th
April 26th
If anyone would like to Marshall any of those dates please let me know. Ideally I would like 3 but 2 is acceptable.

You can contact me at
dallaway17@hotmail.co.uk with any suggestions for the future and for Marshall volunteers.
Most importantly, any feedback that I receive will be confidential and only read by myself.

Big Half Marathon 2018.

Big Half transport idea...... Just a quick note regards the Big half next year - Cairon here.... I have received a quote from AMK for a 22 seat and 40 seat coach for a 6.30 ish leave from Haslemere on the big day in March to get us to London for 8am. I calculate it to be circa £20-22 a person one way - we'd get train back. This is cheaper than people hotel staying and a laugh. I need numbers so if anyone knows how many have entered the big half let me know - I am happy to book the coach but want to get my cash back of course. I currently have nearly 20 people on the list.

Contact me via email if you want to be added to the list.
