Its June already and we have a busy time ahead of us with lots of running, training, racing and of course the highlight of the month with the Great Knaresborough bed race.
We have 4 teams entered this year! Good luck to each and every one of you. Have fun, race well and know that we are all supporting you.
The month started well with a fun social evening last night. Huge thanks to Nadene for organising this.
The monthly newsletter with its official title is attached so there’s lots to read this week. Thanks again to Kevin for producing this. Please remember to send him details of PB’s, anecdotal stories or significant achievements. Download, Issue 3, of The Gold and Black now.
The Week Ahead.
This is the second of the evening league races. Check the web site for full details of start times and parking. You must bring your number and wear your club vest.
Sarah Chalmers and Martin Lofthouse will be there to hand out numbers to those yet to collect them.
Hockey Club. Social Run.
Alan Harby is kindly opening the hockey club so there’s an option to run from there for those not running the evening league. There is some essential maintenance work taking place at the club so there will be no shower facilities.
Bed Race Training.
This is possibly the last training session before the big day on Sunday 8th June.
If you’re thinking of joining the teams please liaise direct with team captains and check email and Facebook messages.
