I hope you’re all well and that whatever you resolved to do in 2020 is still on track!
If you’ve been shying away from club nights, training or running in general now is the time to change that. Get yourself down to the club. Don’t over think it – just turn up, I bet you’ll enjoy your run and at the very least some good company!
Earlier this week Graham sent out initial information regarding a new supplier for our kit. This has prompted a few comments, I want to reassure members that as a committee we’re listening. The design of the tee shirt has yet to be confirmed, so there is time for consultation.
On another note I recently mentioned social media within the club. Well, following this email, I will be sending out another regarding this very topic. I know this is a lot for a Sunday afternoon/evening, but it is important, so please do read it. The policy can be found on the club website here
So, onto the best bit and the week ahead.
Tuesday 4/2/20. Intervals. West Park. 1 mile loops. 5/6.
Emma and Steve will be leading this week’s coaching session.
7pm from the club or 7.10pm on West Park. Please be warmed up and ready to run.
Thursday 6/2/20 Social Club Run. Supermarket Route. 7 miles.
Towards the iron bridge, left along the path to Asda, through town to Waitrose, Stray Rein or Oatlands Drive, Showground, Wetherby Road, Freemans Corner, Forest Moor Lane, Morrisons and Kingsley Drive.
Of course if you want a bit of a change you could always run it in reverse!
The Bar – Social.
The bar is open too, why don’t you pop upstairs for a quick drink and chat? Ill be there, no, I’m not buying, but it’s a chance to ask any questions of me regarding the club and our up and coming AGM. Or just come and have a good chat.
