Sunday 20th November 2011 is the date for the Second East District Cross Country League race which will be held in and around Dechmont Woods, just behind Deans Community High school in Livingston and will be hosted by Lothian Running Club.
Not only do we need runners to take part in this event but we also need approximately 12 Marshalls to assist with hosting this event and to help make sure the whole event runs smoothly.
Every year we get lots of favourable comments from visiting runners on how well the course is marked and commending the job that these Marshalls do. This small band of helpers are required to set out tape, spikes and arrows which are required to mark the course and in some areas, make quick changes for different age group events. Directing the runners and a smile and a cheery shout of encouragement is also a requirement. The collection of the tape, spikes and arrows at the end of all the events would also be appreciated and also sorting out the gear neatly at the end of the races.

There is a sign-up sheet at our Wednesday and Friday club training sessions.
Please add you name if you can help on the day of the race.
Alternatively, you can email Kenny Mearns at

Thank You,
Jim Salvage
