Kedington Meadowlark Sports event - June 7th

Post by setitesuk on Fri Feb 06, 2015 4:29 am

Hi All,

I haven't met many of you yet, having only just joined at this years AGM, but I hope to get involved pretty quickly.

I am involved in the organisation of events at the Kedington Meadowlark week, which culminates with the Grand Meadowlark Fete on the meadow on Sat June 13th.

Other events include bingo, dance/music, carpet bowls, darts and crib, and on Sunday 7th (around 2pm in the afternoon) Cream Teas and some family event.

The last four years have been a kids Fete, and Family prize bingo, but this year we wanted to change the focus and I suggested some sort of sporting event, like a kids/family duathlon on the Meadow (@Kedington Community centre) with other things perhaps as well (I don't know what would be needed to organise a cycle or run around the village).

I was there for the discussion of the HCC sportive/HaverCyclo, and I in no way wish to hijack either event. However, I noticed that you did want to make the HCC more noticed and out there, and wondered if you might be interested in helping/taking part/supporting or just giving me pointers in how and what to organise for this.

I will say up front that this would not be to raise money for anything other than the Kedington Community Association (as they have specifics they need to follow as a registered charity themselves) but you could have a stall with flyers, chatting to people, etc.

I plan to pop into Aerocycles soon to speak with them about it as a business support, but this is just to sound you all out about it and get any comments.

If posting this here is out of turn, then my apologies, I am a newbie to the club after all.

I hope to make this Sunday's ride at 10am, and I will speak with whoever wants to then.

Thanks for reading.

Andy

Hi All,

Thanks for listening on Sunday night at the general meeting, and giving me some ideas and support.

We have a Meadowlark committee meeting next Tuesday, and I will be bringing to that my plans and that you guys would be interested in supporting/helping, and possibly having a stall at Meadowlark on Sat 13th. I think we could certainly accommodate the idea of the static bike races on that day if you wanted to bring that one along. Any comments/further ideas would be most appreciated.

I have drawn up some plans for a kids duathlon for Sunday 7th. They are on Strava

Bike:  https://www.strava.com/routes/1510307
Run:  https://www.strava.com/routes/1504407

Kids will start with the bike, and do 1/2/3 laps depending on age, and then transition to run, again with 1/2/3 laps

Under 7's 0.7km Bike, 0.35km Run (parents could go round with them as it will be fairly slow) 2pm->2.40pm
Under 12's 1.4km Bike, 0.7km Run (might need to do this in 2 lots, if some under 10's need parents, this might be in 2 lots) 2.40pm ->3.30pm
Over 12's 2.1km Bike, 1km Run 3.30pm -> 4.30pm

Even if you wouldn't be able to support the event, I would appreciate any comments from you as to how you think this would work.

Thanks for listening

Andy
