Hello Paul, Thank you for contacting us: Yes you can enter an unattached team of three as per the event rules which are:
One person of the 3 person team must be a female (and can be of any age).
The remaining two runners can be made up of any male or female runners and of any age. All runners must be 16 years of age on the day of the event.

This rule is really for unattached runners who may attend the event as an ‘individual’ and that is to say:
‘You will be placed into an unattached team of runners, allocated on the day of the run by Elswick Harriers event organisers’.
I hope all of the above answers your query. We look forward to seeing you on the start line. Regards, Graham Bell.

Graham Bell

Hello Dan, Thank you for your question: Yes you can enter any number of teams without names. That can be done on the day of the event by a representative from your club. We look forward to your support & participation on the 25th November. Best Regards, Graham Bell

Graham Bell

Good afternoon Dan. Thanks for getting in touch. Unfortunately you cannot pay by bank transfer. If you could very kindly pay by cash or cheque on the day made payable to Elswick Harriers that would be grand. Alternatively you can pay by post, by sending the cheque to Mr Tom Hanson, Club Secretary. Toms details are on the front page of our website, Tab Heading ‘Enquiries’. Hope this helps. See you all on the 25th. Thank you for supporting this format. Best Regards, Graham Bell, Men’s Captain.

Graham Bell

Good Morning Dan,
That’s absolutely fine. We look forward to your club supporting the event. We’ll see you all there on the 25th. Best Regards, Graham Bell, Men’s Captain.

Graham Bell

Hi Dave. Thanks for getting in touch. There is always a possibility that we could host junior races, but do bear in mind the golf course is still open to players and we would have to mindful of this fact. We may consider it in the years ahead. Best Regards, Graham Bell (Men’s Captain).

Joanne Mills

Myself and two grown up children would like to run this, but I no longer have a cheque book. I don’t live far from Wylam and wonder if I could pay cash in person when handing in the application form?

Laura

Hi Graham, we’ve registered an attached team but one of the runners has had to pull out. Can we change them for another club runner of the opposite sex? (We’ll still have 2 females in the team!)
If so, how do we go about making the changes? Thanks

Graham Bell

Good Morning Laura. Thanks for getting in touch. Yes by all means change your club runner with your replacement club runner.
As long as your 3 person team has one female runner in it: Your remaining two athletes can be male or female. Just bring your update with you on the day.
Please bear in mind that on Saturday, the results MAY just allocate the final team time, each leg time and finishing position (with no name attached to each individual leg).
This is to simplify on the day results compilation.
Best Regards, Graham Bell, Men’s Captain.

Lynne

Hi Graham-We’ve entered 2 unattached teams (all female) but unfortunately due to illness one person has dropped out which leaves us one short. Whilst we are trying to get a replacement if we aren’t successful in doing so could the 2 individuals left be placed with another unattached runner by Elswick Harriers event organisers on the day? Thank you.

Graham Bell

Good afternoon Lynne. Thank you for getting in touch. Yes your team can and will be made up by a fellow Elswick Harrier Runner. If you look out for Tom Hanson on Saturday (his photo is on the clubs website – tab heading – Enquiries / Contact the club secretary) Tom’s contact details are there too – If you tell him about your situation, Tom will keep you and your team “right” on the day. Best Regards, Graham Bell (Men’s Captain). We’ll look forward to seeing you on Saturday!

Jocasta Williams

I have entered 3 teams on behalf of Newcastle Frontrunners. Is there any scope for adding an additional team on the day if more than 9 people are interested in running? I will register names on the day and will arrive earlier than some of the runners to do so. Do you need any other info about the runners other than their names? eg date of birth/UKA number. Just want to be totally prepared! Thank you

Graham Bell

Hello Jocasta. Thank you for contacting us. Yes you can enter teams on the day. We are at 75 teams already entered, the licence limit is 100: So its a first come first served basis.
Yes, just names will do Jocasta, as the format requires 3 persons / one of which must be a female / the other two runners can be male or female and all the team members can be of any age (as long as they are over 16 on the day).
We have kept the format as “simple” as possible since this is the first time we have tried this new team relay format…..and we honestly had no idea what to expect!
If you are short of a runner, Elswick Harriers will have a pool of runners from which a runner can be called upon to help out you make up a team.
Hope this helps and thank you for supporting this race & format. See you all on Saturday….Bring a woolly jumper and a flask! It might be a bit chilly!

Graham Bell

Hello Steve, Thanks for contacting us. Yes you can enter teams on the day. We are at around 75 teams entered and the limit is 100….so you should be okay to enter a few more. Thanks for supporting this new format. See you all there on Saturday! Bring a wolly jumper & a flask! Regards, Graham Bell (Men’s Captain).

Huw Parry

Thanks for a very well organised event. I really enjoyed running there today even though it was freezing cold running up the incline to the finish.

Graham Bell

Good morning Huw, Thank you for feedback and NSP’s superb support for the event, (which in itself, was a first for the race). It was a tad cool out there! but from looking around at the start finish line – everyone appeared to enjoy the day & the format. Best Regards, Graham Bell (Men’s Captain).

Graham Bell

Hello Ian thanks for getting in touch: They should now be on the sports soft website. Best Regards, Graham Bell (Men’s Captain).

Graham Bell

Hello Ian, Apologies for a very late reply: The results are on the club website under the tab heading: Races in 2017 (just scroll down & along). We are going to look into placing the results onto the power of 10 data base too. The club requires an administrator to do this…..most likely myself! Regards, Graham Bell (men’s captain)
