NOTE FOR ALL LEADERS. The distance of these groups needs to be within the boundaries of the stated mileage. No more than the max distance.

Finally a message for all members/runners with the club. Mustering is compulsory, this is the clubs number 1 rule! We do this for a number of reasons. 1. Safety. No one should be left on their own on a run. 2. Team work/motivation. We should be working as a team and encouraging each other to get better. 3. Progression. You won't get better if you stand and wait at every muster point, you will just stay the same. Mustering will give you more distance. Alternatively if you feel you need these rests you are running too fast!!
