Congratulations to all the Nidders running the Chester marathon today. I hope you all had a great experience and are still in one piece!
Well done to everyone racing at Grewelthorpe this morning too, I had hoped to be there to cheer you on but last minute holiday packing got in the way.
So yes I’m off to sample the delights of Norway and by sheer coincidence our Guy Fawkes 10 race director Sam is off to warmer climates for exactly the same dates. Great planning I hear you say as we head towards race date early November. Fear not, everything is in hand, but please make a note of the following dates as options for recce runs of the route and leaflet dropping.
Saturday 12th, Sunday 13th, Saturday 19th, Sunday 20th October.
We have an exciting week ahead with the start of our ‘zip to zoomers’ couch to 5K training course starting on Tuesday. Jeff Walker will be at the club with a group of eager new runners ready for a briefing in the bar at 7pm. If you see them give them the usual warm welcome please.
The Week Ahead.
I suggest you see who turns up and decide a route on the evening. I’m sure there will be some tired legs!
