Get your curry on
Don’t forget that Friday 17th May is our post-marathons curry night at Abdul’s – all are welcome, you don’t have to have done a marathon to come along! It is BYOB so should be a cheap-ish and fun night. Speak to Mike K or Mike N or search ‘curry’ in the Facebook group to find the event and click to say you are attending!
Subs are (over) due
Just a reminder that subs were due for payment in April. If you have not yet paid your annual subs, please do so as soon as possible. All members were sent an email with a link to pay, or you can pay on a club night by finding Gary in the bar. If you have any questions about your subs, please CONTACT US

A big marathon ‘well done!!’
As the spring marathon calendar is drawing to a close, all that remains is to say a huge ‘well done’ to all our Harriers who went out and conquered marathons over the last month or so. There have been some truly impressive times and displays of effort and determination – not least from those doing the live tracking!
