SIGNALS ROAD RELAYS
(Incorporating the North Eastern Counties Championships)
HETTON LYONS COUNTRY PARK, SATURDAY, AUGUST 31
(Hosted by Houghton Harriers)
As you are well aware that the event due to take place earlier in the year didn't go ahead due to ongoing discussions with Sunderland City Council over insurance arrangements. However, after members of the NE Counties Road Running Committee met up with Council officials and after a lot of toeing-and-throwing, a draft was finally accepted by both parties together with England Athletics.
Houghton Harriers, and particularly, Peter Dodsworth, worked tirelessly to ensure the long-standing 'Signals' went ahead.
So can I appeal to all club secretaries/team managers to try and support the event. With the closing date for entries rapidly approaching (August 19) up to date only three clubs: Washington, Saltwell and Houghton - have entered and no late entries will be accepted. Entry information is on the NECAA website.
Clubs who entered for the original date all have to re-enter once again.
Thank you, Bill McGuirk, Chairman NECAA
