Welcome to the first monthly newsletter of the 2016 British Spartathlon Team.
First of all congratulations to all of you who were lucky in the draw. To those that weren’t, hang in there. There is usually 15-20% drop out rate.
The current 2016 British Spartathletes are listed below:
Peter Leslie Foxall
Robert Edward Pinnington
Profiles for the 2016 team are currently being added to the website here. If you haven’t sent in your profile details then please do so asap (Information can be sent to the British Spartathlon Team email address here)
We are pleased to announce that we have several volunteers on board already.
Paul Ali has agreed to carry on as webmaster. I think mainly because he doesn’t want me to make a mess of the site he built last year.
Sarah Dryden will be returning as our team photographer as well. Just check out the 2016 gallery to see examples of her great work.
James Ellis is performing the duties of press officer. He will be putting out an appeal for information about the runners so that he can contact your local press and give you your well deserved fifteen minutes of fame.
Mark Burnell is providing the design. I can tell you his new designs are pretty exciting.
We have also got three sponsors on board…
Each are contributing equally and this enables us to provide the same kit to all runners as last year. Namely two runners shirts, two crew shirts and four buffs. We hope to print these via sublimation printing meaning the shirts will “breath” better than last year.
Details of additional sponsors will follow and we are very grateful for everyone’s support.
