Mental Health Wellbeing Workshop – Wednesday 16th January 2019 @ 8pm – After the fantastic start to RED January and the first of two annual #runandtalk events in early February, we are hoping to keep the momentum going when raising awareness of mental health wellbeing by providing a workshop. Sara Buckley and Emma Phillips will be joining Michael Beasley to deliver what is hoped will be an informative session aimed at the three core principles of MIND’s #runandtalk programme.
Gala Dinner and Awards Presentation Night – Friday 1st February – A wonderful celebration of the year’s running. Dress to impress as we hand out awards to the season’s mover and shakers. It’s a fantastic opportunity to relive all those superb moments from the last year amongst friends.
Post Alsager 5 Drinks – Sunday 3rd February, after the race – Let’s get together for a post-Alsager 5, NSRRA-opener shandy or two.
Injury Prevention Talk – Ever wondered how you could prevent those little niggles and issues before they start and what to do if they happen? Well this is the talk for you!
Marshall Training – Wednesday 27th March – As part of the club rules you must help at a minimum of one club race per year so the club is putting on this training event to help train club members. It will also aid as a refresher for the more experienced among us. Please come along and support your club!
First Aid Training – Wednesday 3rd April 7.30pm. While it can easily pass you by, undergoing first aid training is worthwhile. Having some knowledge and never having to use it, is far better than finding yourself with an injured person (as a runner or a marshal) and not knowing how you could help. The training is developed to benefit all Runners, Supporters, Run Leaders and Marshals. Subjects that will be covered include; CPR, Sprains, Cuts and Grazes, Dehydration, Heat Exhaustion, Choking, Hyperthermia and Cramp. We would strongly recommend as many people join us as possible.
Spring Treble – 11th, 18th & 25th April – join us for our fantastic 5-mile(ish) off road courses and Hanchurch, Kibblestone and Downs Banks (at Oulton CC). As always you’re welcome to run or marshal – please come along and support your club!
Club AGM – Wednesday 17th April at 8pm – Witness the SMM Politicians make grand statements in an attempt to get elected / re-elected to the highly prestigious Stone MM Management Committee! Bring a plate of food for the Buffet and Bunfight.

Flying Fox 10 – Sunday 3rd November 2019, 10.30am – as part of the NSRRA series, SMM puts on the Flying Fox 10, a challenging but beautiful course around Standon Bowers and Maer. You’re welcome to run or marshal.
Chairman’s Bare Wrist Run – Wednesday TBC December, 6pm registration, 6.30pm race – anyone can win this highly prestigious accolade, it’s all about the ability to run to a consistent pace – without a watch.
