Week Ahead 16th August 2020

Afternoon All

I hope this finds you all well.

This week is kind of the good news and the not so good news, so I will start with the good.

We won the mob match 10K virtual race against Knaresborough Striders. Congratulations and well done to everyone who ran.

The not so good news is, we didn’t quite win the inter club 5K virtual race. Not to worry I’m sure our time will come and we will have our moment of glory. Congratulations to Ripon Runners, the winners.

Staying on the subject of virtual races, please remember to send in your club subscriptions by the end of August if you want to be counted for our virtual road champ.  Membership Renewal Form 

We have a committee meeting this Wednesday please reply to Christina’s email with any items you would like to raise including anyone you would like to nominate for a superstar award.
