Welcome to the new website
This is an introduction to the new site where I’ll highlight some of the things we have done and explain our plans and goals for the site moving forward.
One of the things we wanted to do with the new site was to make it easily to maintain, keeping a site up to date and fresh is challenge. To help with this we need to share some of the responsibilities for managing content such as moderating the forums, maintaining the galleries and writing articles, features and news letters. We also need a full time Photo guru to manage the massive number of pictures we take and thing about video footage etc.
A second goal was to enable members and non members to interact with the site easily, the first things we have put in place are a:
- ‘contact form’ so members or non members can direct queries easily to appropriate committee members.
- Members only Forum for discussing general queries with an option to add additional groups to allow more specific discussions.
- A twitter account and social sharing links for those social media gurus.
We are actively seeking people who want to contribute material so if you have a burning ambition to publish an article either regularly or as a one off then please get in contact.
You can also help improve the site by contributing images and videos from your runs or simply commenting on the articles you find in this site.
Finally remember to check out the Forums and follow us on twitter and facebook.
We hope you enjoy the new site and that it becomes one of the regular places you visit on the web, after all you need something to do when you aren’t running don’t you.
