London Marathon 2015 Draw
The official draw for the three places FRR have been allocated for the London 2015 Marathon took place just before the Tuesday session on 25 Nov 2015. Each of the pots were divided up as per the allocation on the website.
The draw was made, and I’m pleased to congratulate Caroline Stafford, Rachel Crisp and Daniel Gould on their selection this year. Commiserations to those in the draw that were not picked, but as our fair captain puts it, there is a local classic of the same distance to be run at Bungay!
We look forward to watching all of the FRR athletes selected this year progress with their training towards the big day. Congratulations to you all!
London Marathon 2015 Bus
To confirm, we have booked a 49 seat coach for members, friends & family, who would like to travel to the London Marathon in April 2015, either to run, or support.
Non-members are welcome, whether or not they are directly, or indirectly connected with FRRC. The coach will depart from Solar car park in Felixstowe at 05:45 hrs, picking up en route at Walton, Trimley and Tesco’s (Copdock). Return from the Trafalgar Square area will be at 4.30 pm.
Please book early to avoid disappointment.

Thanks & regards
Christmas Fun Run
The run will involve a treasure-hunt-style run around the town in teams of five. You are welcome to sort your own teams in advance but if you don’t we can sort you on the night. I strongly suggest you have at least 1 Felixstowe native per team. Non-Felixstowe runners may struggle on their own.
‘Fast’ teams will not have an advantage as logic and brain power is required in order to succeed (Sorry Darren!).
The event will finish at the White Horse Pub where food will be available from 8:30pm.
Those who do not wish to run can meet us there, just let me know for catering numbers (email me).
Please bring a torch and a pen per team! Bonus points will be available for runners in fancy dress so if you’re not planning on running very much, come in a cracking outfit for guaranteed extra points. Looking forward to festive FRR fun!
