BD Cross Country League

Chaddesden Park 11 November 11am

The course will be the same as last year with the start and finish near to the community centre. The course is a mixture of good fast running, rough grassland, wooded areas and water. Approx 5 miles with 2 laps.

It is more than likely to be quite damp underfoot. Please be aware that we will be holding a remembrance silence before the fun begins.

Please be courteous in parking as we have had people park on the marked out course previously (On the entrance lane mainly) even though this was marked out with barrier tape. On road parking is also available on Parkside Road (DE21 6QQ) which can be accessed by going to the end of Maine drive and turning right at the island. You will see the park on your right approx 100yds down with the centre being a short stroll away.


Also remember we will have a double presentation after the race for the summer and preceding winter series so please make sure your members are aware and some of them stay behind if possible. We also have a special something for Louis Booth in thanks for his years of support. Louis has confirmed he will be attending to present the winter 2017/2018 prizes alongside Rob Jefferies presenting the summer 2018 league winners.


Results can now be accessed via the League Tracker website, link below.


Brief Highlights from the AGM

 (For those members not on Facebook)


There was a "Cabinet Re-shuffle" due to resignations from the Committee by John Ashover and John Cannon. Thank you both for your lengthy service and commitment over the years.  Stephen Moss and Darren Jackson were appointed onto the Committee, welcome aboard!


Team Captains Rebecca Broughton and Tom Topham stood down. Thank you both for your service to the teams this year, you've been awesome Captains.  Congratulations to Sarah Witham who has been appointed Ladies Captain, you will be fantastic!   We still need a Captain for the men's team! There must be somebody out there willing to take on this role.


Colin Sinnott has retired as Editor of Newsrun after 16 years. Thank you to Colin for putting this little gem together for us all over the years, it is a staple part of our Club. Neil Chaplin will now be taking over the role.


Club fees to raise to £15.00 per year from 1 October 2019. Members contributions to England Athletics to raise from £7.00 to £13.00 from 1 April 2019 (This is inclusive of a £3.00 fee to Northern Athletics). Those members who have paid £7.00 for EA fees, will have to pay a further £6.00 by 1 April.


The future of NWIP is under threat, unless we can get a person/persons willing to take it over from January 2019. More information will be sent out regarding this.


Club Challenge. The format will be changed next year to include a wider variety of races, including fells and XC, the amount of races to be completed will remain at 12. Gary Bates will issue further information about this in due course. Thank you to Gary for organising and arranging the Club Challenge this year and going forward.


Andy Hall made an announcement about a new Membership Portal which will allow a more efficient and streamlined system for new and existing members to pay subs and update details online. There will be more information about this as the process is introduced and tested.


These are the highlights. Thank you Mike Bravin for arranging the meeting, and to everyone who attended and contributed.
