"Success seems to be largely a matter
of hanging on after others have let go."
- William Feather
If we want more people to take up running and join our clubs then I think one thing (amongst many) that would help is better prizes.
The last few races I've done the prizes have been, ?5 for third, box of biscuits for third. A cheap drill for 2nd place in a Marathon. Obviously we don't run for the money but if there was ?50 instead of ?5 in these races then it might encourage others?
Today's running: am 4 pm 11.
