HELLO,

I'VE JUST JOINED I'VE TRIED ALL OF THE EMAIL TEXT ADVICE RE THE TRR AC SHOP TO TRY AND PURCHASE A RACING VEST BUT NO LUCK, NO REPLIES TO EMAIL OR TEXT.

I'M AFTER A MEDIUM SIZE RACING VEST SO THAT I CAN COMPETE FOR THE CLUB.

General Discussion / Running for Refugees Update
« Last post by Steve King on November 11, 2016, 10:35:09 PM »
Thanks to all those club members who have asked recently about how my running challenge is progressing.  Today was the halfway point – my fiftieth consecutive day of running 10KM.  I started on September 28th and aim to finish with run number 100 on New Year’s Eve.

This idea came about after I volunteered for l’Auberge des Migrants in Calais during the summer holiday.  When I got back, I wanted to raise some money for the cause, but also wanted to do something a bit different with my running over the autumn and winter. 

Although the refugee camp in Calais has been demolished and its former inhabitants dispersed, you will realise that the issue is far from resolved.  Updated information on the work of the charity for which I am fundraising - Help Refugees - can be found here: http://www.helprefugees.org.uk/news/after-the-jungle-thank-you/


If you would like to sponsor me on this series of runs, please do so at: https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/steveking1

Any donations would be very much appreciated and please don’t forget to Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer.  (For anyone interested, my times have ranged from 43:22 to 50:08 and I’m continuing to post each run here: http://www.running100days.com/RunningForRefugees/)

Many thanks for reading.

Steve

Rant continues.

I was in exactly the same position last year with this race and thought that they would at least reply to my emails.  Unfortunately these races are there to make money and customer care is the very bottom of the list.  Left a really sour taste in my mouth...especially they way we as  a club try to look after the runners who take part in our races.

Avoid the Bourmouth Marathon

General Discussion / Deferrments
« Last post by smitha on September 07, 2016, 05:57:16 PM »
Isn't it about time there was a standard policy with regard to deferments due to injury, especially for the more expensive races. I have paid £55.00 for Bournemouth Marathon and will almost certainly not run it due to injury. GSI events, who also arrange Edinburgh Marathon, just keep all the entry fee, no refund, no deferment and not even the courtesy of a response unless you hound them. I e mailed twice in 2 weeks, phone when I got no response and phoned again when I got no response to that. I tried to e mail their main e mail address, but it no longer takes incoming mail and I put a post on their facebook page, but obviously they have veto on that, so needless to say it didn't appear. Not being able to run a race you have been training for is disappointing, to give the organisers a not insignificant sum of money for nothing adds insult to injury.  So beware of GSI events!

Rant over!!
