Club News and Other Mailing Lists

The club has a mailing list system, fully integrated with our website, which is the primary method of disseminating 'official' club information. These are one-way mailing lists that only a limited number of organisers within the club will be able to mail to, so you will not receive any spam.

These lists are separate to the yahoo egroup that we use for unmoderated member to member chat.

What lists are there?

The mailing lists you can choose from are as follows.

Club news

General club announcements, important race results, brand new training sessions to be launched, awards, information about volunteering opportunities, parties, trips and other social events. We are very careful to keep email volume to this list to a minimum.

Racing - running (cross-country, track & field, etc)

Information about road races, cross-country, track and field meetings, weekend relays, club championships etc.

Racing - other (triathlon, duathlon, aquathlon, CTT etc)

Information about triathlon and other multi-sport races, cycling time-trials, cyclosportives, triathlon and multi-sport club championships

Training - running

Information about regular and ad-hoc training sessions for running and athletics: road, track and field.

This mailing list will include regular weekly reminders about Serpie training sessions. If you do not wish to receive regular reminders then do not subscribe to this list. You can use the weekly training planner to remind yourself of club sessions or monitor the mailing list digest.

How do I sign up?

To sign-up to (or sign-off from) a list, please log into Serpiebase, and click on 'Email preferences'. On that page you can tick/un-tick the boxes next to the list that you want to receive emails from the club.

The email address used for the list is your primary email address as listed on your profile in Serpiebase so you will need to keep your email address up to date. You need to be a club member to sign-up to the lists and note that anyone whose membership has expired for more than 4 weeks will be automatically removed from all lists so make sure you renew your membership promptly!

Is there a digest version of the mailing lists?

Yes - it is online, and displays all of the messages sent through the mailing list for the last 7 days. Click on 'News' in the top right hand corner of this page, and then select 'Mailing list digest' from the left hand menu.
