Volunteers Required for Great Edinburgh Run – Sunday 27th April

We are looking for a few more volunteers to assist at the Bupa Great Edinburgh Run, at Holyrood Park on Sunday 27th April. Our duties are usually at the finish area, collecting chips and handing out t-shirts. As usual each marshall will receive a free Great Run Jacket and a packed lunch and EAC will receive £20 donation for each marshall supplied.  You will need to be at the finish area at Holyrood for 9am and the duties will be over when all of the runners are home (approx. midday).

We need to confirm numbers by the end of this week, so if you can help, please let Garry know or add a comment to this post ASAP.

Endurance Squad Weekend Workouts – 11/04/14

No organised session on Saturday. On Sunday we are looking for some good EAC results at the London Marathon, with others racing at the Scottish 10 Mile Championship and the St Andrews 1/2 Marathon. Everyone else will be at Craiglockhart Sports Centre for the 9am Sunday long run along the Canal and Water of Leith paths. All welcome.

A reminder that our coaching legend Alex MacEwen is running the London Marathon this year, to raise money for a very good and very personal cause. Please check out his charity page at  http://www.justgiving.com/alexmacewen

Edinburgh Lothian Trials

Edinburgh Lothian Trials Fund Raising.
Well done to everyone who took part in the Edinburgh and Lothian Trials yesterday. Thanks to all officials for organising a successful event which could not be run without you. EAC’s parents group raised a fantastic £567 from the teas/coffees/tombola and raffle – thanks to those who donated and spent money!

Edinburgh and Lothian trials results: lothian trials results

Here is the first  copy of the reults from yesterday, minus the U17 and Senior Women’s Long Jump.The Long Jump Card was not sent to the Results Team and I have not been able to find it.We are currently trying to locate the Field Card.
We had a few problems in Photo Finish as athletes did not either start or finish in the lanes allocated on the startlist.
The photofinish programme allocates the athletes names to each lane and therefore who finishes in a specific lane will be allocated that name.
If you believe your result is wrong please let me know and tell
me the lane you actually ran in.

However, thanks to everyone who assisted and the weather was reasonably kind to us.
