Week Ahead – Sunday 26th January 2020

Afternoon All

I hope you’re all well and for those of you at the awards evening last night I hope you all had a fun evening. I’m certainly feeling it today, I think I need to remember I’m not 21 anymore!

I thanked a lot of people last night, but my final thanks was to you, the members of Nidd Valley, for making the club such a friendly and welcoming place for people to belong and I mean that most sincerely.

Nidd Valley Road Runners Awards Night January 2020

Im sure you will have received the email from Christina Taylor, our club secretary regarding the AGM on 27th February. I just want to remind you that this is when the committee will be formed and if you’re interested in a role on the committee please email enquiries@niddvalleyroadrunners.co.uk before 13th February 2020.

So, moving on to the week ahead, there doesn’t appear to be any races next weekend which means its a chance to dig deep and get some good quality training under your belt without the need to save a bit for a race.
