NOTAN GP Standings before the final GP

Saturday, March 17th, 2018

Dear Fellow Athletes

Please see the current individual NOTAN Grand Prix Standings before GP8 (final event) on the 3rd April (7pm Start).

So why are these different to before? Inline with tradition, The individuals worst performance from GP 1 to 7 has been removed, and this new total will be added to GP8’s performance. This encourages everybody to do GP8 as it will count regardless. Contrary to previous rumours it is not worth double points. Please note the team standings are not impacted.

Please find here GP8’s all-important  HANDICAPS, which have only slightly changed for a few people based on feedback and current form.

Following the event we look forward to welcoming you back to the Cullercoats Cresant Club to announce the prize winners (and food).

Kind Regards
Your NOTAN GP organising team

Cold Brew Events and High Fell Events improve safety of monthly Winter Handicap

Thursday, March 1st, 2018

Big shout out to Andy Clark, Barry Kemp, and Drew Swinburne from Cold Brew Events and High Fell Events, who have offered NOTAN, the use of 8 mobile halogen lighting systems, and other equipment FREE OF CHARGE, to assist in the safety of runners doing our monthly Winter Handicap.

Due to on-going works along Whitley Bay’s sea front the traditional route of the Winter Handicap event has witnessed a number of alterations in the last few months, and more may follow. The new/current route along the lower promenade means that only half of the 1200m stretch is lit. Thanks to Vaughan Hemy, Peter Atkinson and their army of volunteers (and their head torches) the event has continued despite these disruptions.

The support from Cold Brew Events and High Fell Events, best known for organising night-time fell races, will provide better levels of lighting along this stretch of the route and improved levels of safety for all concerned.

The Trustees of NOTAN, would also like to express our thanks to Gez Davison, for his assistance in this matter.

A huge thank you to the 59 athletes who took part today, and all others who have participated across the series. Countless individuals have helped out at these 3 meetings, and without the assistance of these dedicated volunteers this series would not be possible. A huge thank you to everyone!
