Ørsted Great Grimsby 10k Race Update
March 11, 2019
Thanks again for entering the 4th Ørsted Great Grimby 10k.. This is the first of our periodic updates for you, as we love to keep you updated with how race plans are going. As well as the serious stuff, we do try and introduce some humour into our correspondence(appropriate humour of course!)
Hope your training is going well and you are managing to stay injury/illness free.
There are still well over 4 months to race day when we expect to host well in excess of 4000 runners! Entries are still available if you need to give your family/friends a nudge to join you on 21st July!
What have we been up to?
- Designing the all important medals and fab tee shirts.
- Signing up business sponsors so can can continue to keep the entry fees great value for money.(nearly half the price of other 10ks!)
- Not exactly sexy stuff…BUT…we attended a meeting of the event safety advisory group(police, fire, ambulance, council, highways etc) where we answered a multitude of questions from all agencies about the race. Thankfully we came out in one piece with a clean safety bill of health!
Race Crew Needed!
If you have any family/friends who dont want to run but wish to be part of this fantastic community event, why not ask them to become part of the race crew. They will actually receive a fab tee shirt without running the race!(now that sounds good!) Ask them to sign up via our web site and Laura from our team will get in touch with them. >>> VOLUNTER SIGN UP . Thank you.
Have you moved house or changed any of your details?
Quite simply, you need to update the on-line entry system you used to enter the race. Advice on how to do so can be found on our web site in the FAQS >>> ADVICE . You will also find the answer to most of your questions about the race in there.
If you have not already signed up to our social media channels then you are missing a trick! And the occasional laugh of course!
Emails: please check your spam folder!
A full list of all our races can be found on our web site. Have a look and see what else we have on offer for you. >>> TAPE2TAPE RACES
And finally…running is good for you, isn’t it?
As runners ourselves we love to run! Well, when we are not crocked that is ! We are both recovering from having a knee operation within a few weeks of each other. Todays surgery methods are amazing and we both hope to don our trainers again very very soon. In the meantime we will just have to concentrate on making sure you have a great time at our races!
Keep up your training(or get on with it if you haven’t yet started!)
All the best
Nicola and Neil
