The ‘new tag’ team would like to thank all members for remembering their tags and following the instructions give at the finish area. The trial went very smoothly, and the results using the new system were compiled very quickly.
A further trial will be carried out at the next run
Pre-existing medical conditions
At a recent Sunday Run a member collapsed and was treated by a member who is a doctor. He was taken to hospital and recovered well.
The incident prompted the committee to decide to keep a folder at the start/finish area with details of relevant member medical conditions. While it will be marked ‘medical confidential’ we cannot guarantee it won’t be seen by a general member.
If you would like a relevant condition to be listed in this folder, please send an email to Carol Bowman, who is a qualified nurse. email@example.com
Member emergency contact numbers are kept at the start/finish and are also written on the new member tags.
New tag system
The new system will definitely be trialled at Thornlie this Sunday.
If you already have your tag, please remember to bring it and carry it on the run.
If you do not, please collect it before the start of the run.
