I hope you are doing well.
I wanted to get in touch regarding the Forest Runner event that is taking place in Bedgebury next Sunday (26th September).
Forest Runner is a running series of 5k and 10k runs across 10 Forestry England sites this Autumn. Ourselves and Forestry England are looking for volunteers to help marshal the course and help out in the finish area for the run. Would anyone from Sevenoaks AC be able to help us out in the event in any way?
Course marshals are positioned on the route to ensure the welfare of the runners and to cheer them on. Anyone helping in the finish will be handing out t shirts, medals and goody bags.
It takes place on Sunday 26th September. The run starts at 9am however we need volunteers to meet between 7.30am-7.45am.
If you know anyone at the club who would like to help out please let me know. We really appreciate all the help we can get.
Any questions please let me know.

It has become an SAC annual event to hold a 1 Mile track race each summer. The race distance has a long history in UK athletics and no matter what your ability this event provides an opportunity to test yourself over the distance. The plan is to hold the event on Thurs 5 August at 7pm, I had hoped to use one of our weekend track slots for the event but this tends to clash with other race events and the imminent return of Park Run. Depending on the number of those interested we usually hold 2 or more separate races to spread the timing and recording workload and to group runners in terms of race speed.
If you would like to take part it would be helpful if you could let me know together with an idea of your expected race time so that I can plan the race groupings.
I am contacting Sevenoaks AC from the Kent Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre and I was hoping that you may be able to help us out this year which has been really hard for our charity and patients.
I was hoping you may have one or two of your members that would be willing to run for us at one of the popular fitness events as we have secure places at the:
London Landmarks Half Marathon on 1st August 2021
London Vitality Big Half Marathon on 22nd August 2021
Thames Bridge Trek on 11th September 2021
Royal Parks Half Marathon on 10th October 2021.
It would be brilliant if you cost post this on your social media groups and email to members as we would really love for you to take part on our behalf and raise some funds for all the work we do for people with MS in Kent.
All the best

UK Athletics in cooperation with the Home Country Athletics Federations have published updated safety advice for runners and joggers as well as suggested guidance for non-runners.
The advice was refreshed following some recent high-profile cases of harassment of athletes training in public areas. Any abuse or threats against athletes whilst training are completely unacceptable, and the safety guidelines published are to support athletes, recreational runners and other sports people exercising in public to feel prepared for any eventuality.
In addition – guidance for non-runners has been published to highlight how some behaviours may cause harm or upset, even unintentionally.
The guidance is here.
RunTogether has put together some useful tips to help you run safely and ensure you get the maximum enjoyment out of your runs. See the advice here.
There are also tips on dealing with negative behaviour here.
