Bristol & West Athletic Club have been asked to help stage the launch of the Harbourside Mile Trail on Saturday 16th February 2013. This is a new running route that will be marked with Nick Rose’s foot outline. There will be a Business Challenge of a 4 x 440 yards relay, Young Athlete Mile Races and a family Fun Run to launch the trail, which will also see the launch of a new Harbourside Running Group that will be linked to Bristol & West in the same manner as Whitehall Runners and WISE Runners are. The first event commences at 10.30 a.m. Keith Brackstone is coordinating the club’s input and needs ideally 30 volunteers to marshal on the course and at the finish and to help with timekeeping and registration. The sponsors of the event and the new running trail – Crest Nicholson – will make a sizable donation to club funds in return for the volunteer’s help. Please contact Keith at firstname.lastname@example.org to lend your support. More details of the launch can be found at www.harboursidealive.co.uk/sports-trail .
The event includes mile races for young athletes of secondary school age and there is a £50 prize for the club or school of the winning athlete in each age group based on minor (years 7 & 8) , junior (years 9 & 10) and intermediate (years 11 & 12) school age groups.
