This year we are helping out with the River Stour Festival 2018. There are many events going on and we are helping the Sturmer Village Hall committee to put on a 5k fun run! The route will be entirely off-road around the scenic River Stour and Stour Valley Path and held on Monday 28th May.
The route will be subject to a xc permit and measured to 5k. Both runners and walkers will be welcome. We will do a staggered start and there will also be a shorter option too.
Race HQ, tea, coffee and refreshments will be based at Sturmer Village Hall, 5 Rowley Hill, Haverhill CB9 7XF

🏃🏼♂️🏃♀️boring but important housekeeping post 🏃♀️🏃🏼♂️
Can you all please check the current status of your club membership, yearly subs are due payment to England Athletics (this pays for your unique EA number which allows you to compete as HRC) at the end of this month.
There are over 100 members who have outstanding subs, a few of these we know have left the club or are no longer competing but the majority of names on the list are current competing HRC members (some are nearly a year over due 🙈) we also know that this is likely just an over sight as we do not believe that people would deliberately not pay
Please can you check your membership by following this link if you think you may be guilty (I hold my hand up my name was on there, 4 weeks over due 😬) to renew before the end of the month or the subs won’t get paid and we’d hate for people to miss out
Thank you 😊 🏃♀️🏃🏼♂️
P.s if anyone is overdue and can’t settle up before the end of the month please just get in touch with myself or Jo Vickery and we’ll sort something out with you
