Teggs Nose Fell Race 5th August 2017 14:30

Postby Simon » Mon Jul 10, 2017 7:32 pm

It's July again, folks... looking for volunteers to help with the Tegg's Nose race from the Sheepdog Trials.

This year, Sam Alston who (amongst other things) organises the Bosley Race, has taken on the overall responsibility for the race, but I am still involved and looking to muster support.

As in previous years, this post sets out the plan for marshalling and for the day.

I apologise if I have overlooked anyone's offer of help, but please post below to slot into vacant positions.

If anyone has chance to take a random selction of photos that could be good enough quality to go into the race report and for publication in the FRA runner mag, that would be great.



TEGGS NOSE MARSHAL POSITIONS

ORGANISER / EMERGENCY CONTACT: Sam Alston (07768 176306) or Janet (07768 175803)
Please advise me of any retirements / non-starters / injuries / concerns. In the (very unlikely) event of an emergency, dial 999 and the call handler will advise you as to what to do. The Grid references and postcodes are to aid the Ambulance service in navigating to your location. Stop passing runners to assist if needed or to call my number and an adjacent marshal to assist... numbers are all here and reception in the vicinity is generally good.

This pretty much covers the risks of slips, trips and falls... the most likely and that's fell running!

There will be cattle in the fields of Jarman Farm near the beginning and end. I have seen David Bullock (the farmer) and he is confident that the cattle are VERY placid and do not constitute a risk to passing runners. The race details state NO DOGS and everyone will be reminded of such at the start / registration. There should be no other livestock issues and there are marshals at all gates.

The road crossing at Byron's Lane (and less so at Broadcar Road) carry traffic risks. The route has signage stating "CAUTION RUNNERS". A PCSO or two will be at Byron's Lane for the outward leg, to be a presence of authority, though our marshals are expected to do the talking in the first instance.

On Broadcar Road (Point J), there is a risk over enthusiastic runners propel themselves into the road on the return leg... hence a marshal at that point...


I'll revisit this in the next few days,

Mark and Hazel, thanks a lot....I'll edit the rota as the day approaches. Barry, yep, be great to mark the course with you on the Friday (usual drill; meet up on Broadcar Road, mark the route and adjourn to the Dunny). I'll see if Sam wants to join us...should be very sociable.

Many thanks again y'all.

...still a few vacancies to fill...tell your friends!

Gillian, hello. Yep, another helper would be great. Sophie and Kath have the water station on top of Broadcar Road, but a third helper is very useful. Despite being well signed, 200 yards beyond the water station, returning runners (in the heat of competition) occasionally ignore the signs and take a right turn instead of left. This is the only place we have ever lost anyone....one chap was found at Windyways!!!! :roll: Could you give me a call and I can add your number to the marshals notes. Many thanks.

All signage in place. Would marshals be so kind as to text Sam Alston once in position or else come to the Trials field to collect a bib.

Please report any DNFs to Sam.

The first post on this thread is the plan and risk assessment.

Many thanks for your help and see you later.

Thanks to Sam, Simon and all the marshals and helpers, great day for running if you ignore the 5 minutes of downpour.

Well run everyone especially the prize winners which included Kathleen as first lady ! Dan and Barry.

Margaret Huyton also picked up a prize as "1st V60" (Ann Marie V60 English champ was 2nd lady).
Excellent signage and marshalling Simon. Can you iron out the hills next time; it's a bit tough.

Cheers Barry

PS Could you e mail the results Simon (excel would be good) so I can update the club champs.
