This week its mostly Oktoberfest details to tell you about;

Sat 24 Sep 9.00-10.00am Pavilion – Swim Smooth explained! Tom and Martin provide the info

Sat 1 Oct 9.00am – Park Run @ Tilgate if you are not registered go to www.parkrun.org.uk/tilgate  and do so and then bring the barcode with you so you can register a time. This will be my firs run since February so I don't anticipate getting far up the EGTC records – check them out on Park Run website!

Sat 8 Oct 8.00-8.45am Dance Studio – Kettlebells for Beginners, with Jan away we've asked Ollie to come along and give us an intro to improving our cardio, strength and flexibility using these weights

Sat 15 Oct 9.15-10.15am Top Floor Station Car Park – Bike Handling Skills, how slow can you cycle and still maintain control? Can you slalom or bunny hop? Bring along your road or mountain bike, helmet etc and get advice and practical tips from cycle coach Simon Neeve

Sat 22 Oct 8.30-9.30am Main Hall – Trampoline with Tracy! If you've never tried bouncing on a proper trampoline then this is the session for you! I'd suggest long running tights and two pairs of socks!

Sat 29 Oct 8.30-10.00am Back room of Cafe area – Cake, Kit and Chat! A social morning sampling some superb home made cakes, swapping or selling any of your unwanted kit/gear and asking our top team of coaches for advice on training or racing in 2017!

And the there's an extra Oktoberfest event – Women on Wheels event at Cyclopark, Gravesend Sun 9 October. Karen Mycock is organising car shares to get there and back so talk to her and take a look on www.cyclopark.com website for details

Plus this is your very last reminder that the East Grinstead 10km is on 25 Sept this year and the organisers are looking for volunteer marshals. If you haven’t marshalled at this event before, then please come along as it's a really brilliant local and friendly race, very popular with about 400 runners, and also all over very quickly!! The race starts at 10am and all over shortly after 11am. If you can come along, please contact Colin at colinjamesday@yahoo.co.uk to let him know and he will add you to his list and he will contact you nearer to race day with details

Good luck to any of you racing at Hever this weekend – I'll think of you as Jackie, Duncan and I tackle the Sussex Stride from 10.00am on Saturday until we finish sometime early Sunday morning!

Train safe
