Further to the subject of a new kit supplier at our recent AGM, we have received a small number of samples from different suppliers which we would like members to trial.
Ideally we would like members who have had problems with the old kit to trial, wear and wash, and swap with someone else who has another piece of kit. Details of what we have is at the foot of this message.
You will need to collect tomorrow night after the club run from Karen Barritt, or at Assembly League on Thursday from me.
We will need feedback in 3-4 weeks.
Please let me know if you would like to be a tester and whether or not you will be present tomorrow or Thursday. First come, first served.

On Tuesday 18th July 285 runners lined up in Jubilee Country Park to race to win the mob match trophy for their club
Despite the threat of rain the night was a great success with good humoured banter between the local rivals
PWR won the race with the most registered runners with 174 completing the 5km 2.5km lap course. Orpington Road Runners had 85 runners and Bromley Vets 26 runners.
PWR also retained their mob match trophy against ORR with their top 85 runners having a lower position score of 6074 compared to ORR which had 9674. Well done to all the other runners who helped push ORR's positions further down and therefore increased their score.
It is a great race where every runner of all abilities are key to the results and this was shown in the great support of all the PWR's who attended and celebrated afterwards at the Bickley Manor Hotel.
Thanks to Richard Dunstan for his great organisation, Sonia for the results, the captains teams with assisting with number distribution, the fabulous supportive marshals, Ann our tail runner and other volunteers who helped at the finish, on the water station and to set up and clear away.
On Saturday 15th July 2017 Hoblingwell parkrun welcomed 215 runners to its inaugural event.
Although this is not an official Petts Wood Runners event it's CORE Team are 90% PWR and adds yet another parkrun along with Bromley, Hilly Fields and Greenwich etc where PWRs volunteer and encourage runners and walkers of all abilities every Saturday morning at 9am.
Hoblingwell looks forward to welcoming you every Saturday 9am
