Early warning. On the 12th and 19th of September we have 2 relay events that the club enter. The 12th is the Merseyside Relays at Edge Hill in Ormskirk and the 19th is the North West Relays (venue TBC) Between Jane and I we'll be entering the ladies and Mens teams in the upcoming weeks, so if you're interested please post here. We have no limit on the number of teams we can enter so we are looking to take a Black and White Army to both events, so all welcome (and actively encouraged!). Any questions, let me know.
I'm available for both
In for the 12th
I'm available for both. I'm sure the second one is at Sefton Park again.

I have a number of 'possibles' on my list too - please can you let me know if you can run ASAP, either see me tonight, post here/facebook, or email me. Come on, your club needs you!
I'll run if you're short for a team.
Id like to run on the 12th if there is still space.
I'll be entering the number of teams over the weekend, based on the following confirmed names for the two dates. If anyone else is interested, let me know asap
I can do the 12th if there's still any room
Me for 12th please Capy Jane
Sorry - I now can't do the 19th (boring family stuff)
Ste: will add you in
Andy: no worries, will take you off the list
Anna: Jane will add you in when she's sees this
Great Anna and Cristina added to the list!!
I can't do the edge hill one now, doing great north run on the Sunday and only train I can get is 2oclock on sat. Still ok got 6 stage in Blackpool.
No worries Jay, cheers for letting me know.
I'm available Saturday if you're still taking names Andy
Just to clarify....
12.09 @Ormskirk is the NW (north west) relays
19.09 @Blackpool is the NA (northern athletics england) relays
no pressure then ;)
If it helps I can pick up the mens' numbers as I'll be there from about 12 noon because my lad is competing in the U15 event
I can do 19th as well now if there's a space.
Just to clarify I am referring to this Saturday's event at Ormskirk
That'd be great if you could.
Andy - do you need anyone else for the mens relay?
We may be short of a woman for one of the teams on Saturday. Is there anyone who would like to step up as a reserve? May or may not be needed to run - if you'd like a no-pressure early afternoon jaunt come with us!
I can do the 19th if there's still space
Phil: I've got full teams as of 11am Friday morning but if I have any dropouts over the next 24 hours, I might be in touch.
Adam: Added to the list for the 19th
Apologies Andy. Can no longer make the 19th. Can still make tomorrow if you need a stand in.
Apologies Phil. Missed this on Saturday, no worries.
My plans have been cancelled for Saturday now so can make it if you are a man short.
No worries if not, late notice I know
FAO Andy Leslie
As I mentioned earlier, unfortunately I've just found out I won't be able to make the relays now.
Apologies for any problems caused Andy...
Cheers Simo, no worries.
David: You're on my list
Some more info on tomorrow's event. Both men's and women's stages look a little longer than in the prospectus and both look twisty!
Some decent travel directions on there too.
(Can someone link this onto the facebook page please - I can't at work!)
It's the same course as 2 years ago...remember if you catch a glimpse of the athletics stadium for the first time on your leg, you may think you're almost at the finish...think again!
