The Week Ahead – Monday 15th October 2018

Evening Nidders,

Hope you all had a good weekend, firstly well done to everyone completing ‘The Yorkshire Marathon’ yesterday. I know lots of you got together to train over recent months, so I really hope all the hard work has paid off.

Also a big thank you to everyone who helped out at Parkrun on Saturday morning, my son’s football practice was postponed so I was able to come along at short notice. It was a really impressive turn out by everyone, and I particularly enjoyed some of the cakes at the finish line. On top of everything else that you’re good at, it appears we’ve got some pretty talented bakers in our club too! A great effort all round, I’m sure we’ll see lots of new members as a result.

I do have one minor complaint though, on my first lap I was greeted by one of our Marshalls (who’ll remain nameless) and referred to as ‘Dan – the lesser spotted Chairman!’ I’d just like to point out that it’s 2018, and it should really have been ‘Dan – the lesser spotted Chair’. 😜

In keeping with my new monicker of the ‘lesser spotted Chair’, you’ll not be surpised to hear I’ll not be at the club again this week – although I will be at Wednesday night’s Commitee meeting. As I’ll not be there I’ve asked Martin for his run suggestions, and he thinks a run to Knaresborough on Tuesday, and then the ‘Supermarket Sweep’ on Thursday would be a good idea.

The run down to Knaresborough has lots of options to extend but the most straighforward, and shortest route is to leave the club and head towards Starbeck via Kingsley Drive and before tunring right onto Kingsley Road. We then head straight towards Knaresborough through Starbeck before turning left onto Waterside, at the end of Waterside we head up towards Forest Moor Road, from there it’s the well trodden path back to the club via Morrissons and Prospect Road and then back to the club.

The Supermarket Sweep is a well known route, so I won’t go over it again here. As always both runs are leaving the club at 7pm, have a great week and I’ll be back running soon!

That’s all from me this week! Don’t forget your hi-vis vests.

Thanks

Dan
