Good Morning CP Runners,
 
Meeting place for Monday 14th June:  Elmwood Farm, Beighton
 
Please be at the meeting place for 6.20pm parking on the road after the Elmwood Farm entrance.
 
We have been asked by Crystal Peaks for a club photo. We will do this in 3 groups to stay socially distant.
 
If you have a Crystal Peaks T Shirt please wear it but you don't have to run in it if it's too warm.
 
If you aren't running at the moment due to injury please feel free to come down for the photo.
 
See you all tomorrow,
 
Bridget. 
 
 

Wednesday 24th March 2021

Hello CP Runners,

Hope you are all well. 
 
As you are all aware we had to postpone our Moss Valley Madness 10k run last year and set the date for 19th September 2021.
 
Unfortunately, after speaking to the land owners about the run I was informed of a virulent tree disease, Ramorum, that is affecting two of the areas the run would go through. The disease is likened to the tree equivalent of foot and mouth disease we experienced years ago and is spread on the shoes, cycle wheels etc of people who go through these areas. All of this means that we do not have the permission of one of the land owners to stage our race. 
 
Paul, Lucie and I have had a Zoom meeting about this and we have all come to the conclusion that as a club, we cannot stage a race that would potentially spread the disease throughout the woods, knowing that the only treatment for this is to fell the affected trees. 
 
We would however like club runners to save the September 19th date because we are going to put on our own club run. The run will include 3 different distances so all runners will be able to take part. We will also provide refreshments after the run. Details about where we will meet for the run will be provided nearer the time. 
 
Looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday 31st March.
Take care, stay safe,
Bridget.
 
PS This video provides a useful explanation of Ramorum and the work that will have to be done in Eckington to eradicate the disease. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O3FivPSamgo

 

 

  

Remember, when running with someone not in your household, stay 2m apart

and

 wear hi-viz if you're running after dark.
