Congratulations to our club secretary John Gillespie and his wife Pearl on the birth of their new baby Grandson Regan John Bartlett.
John and Pearl currently visiting their daughter in New Zealand were fortunate enough to be there when baby arrived and have sent an e-mail to Dave and Jean Hand with the fantastic news.
Best wishes to you and your family from all at Lasswade AC.
ROAD CLOSURE A7 – Lasswade XC 30 OCTOBER 2016 , Gorebridge
I have been made aware of the following road closure which may cause some travel disruption for athletes travelling from Galashiels and Borders heading for our cross country event . Please build in some additional travelling time and consider your route
A7 Stow to Midlothian Boundary
Road Closure Schedule
The A7 Galashiels to Edinburgh road will be closed to vehicular traffic from a point just north of Stow to the Midlothian Boundary. This closure is required to allow Scottish Borders Council to carry out resurfacing and patching works. During the closure it is also anticipated that other routine maintenance works will be carried out.
The closure is planned for the 28th and 31st October 2016 and from the 1st to the 4th November 2016 between the hours of 08:00 and 16:00 each day. It is however hoped that the works will be completed by the 2nd November 2016.
Local access will be available to local residents under the guidance of the sentries located either end of the closure or when directed by local diversionary signage. The X95 bus will operate as per normal.
The alternative northbound route will be via the A7, A6091, A68, A6106, A6094 and the A7 to point of closure.
The alternative southbound route will be the above in reverse.
Kirk Smith is urgently looking for anyone wishing to run in the event at Cumbernauld to confirm with him ASAP as names need to be submitted before the weekend is out.
In particular we need more U13 girls. We have only have one at the moment which obviously means only one team which is disappointing as we have more older girls wanting to race.
Boys we could do with one more U15 or one more U13 and we could run them as an U15 that would give us four boys teams.
Please consider helping your clubmates and get your name to Kirk as soon as possible
As the cross Country season gets underway this weekend we look to get our athletes prepared in the best way possible.
Part of this preparation is being properly hydrated and eating healthily before , during and after activity.
There are vast amounts of articles to confuse even the most avid reader on the subject but with thanks and permission of my good friends at Moorfoot Runners I reproduce and attach what I believe is a very user friendly document
