Week Ahead 27th September 2020

Afternoon All,

I hope you’re all well and continuing with some good training. I know a lot of members are still training for various virtual races, including some tough marathon events, so I wanted to wish you all well and congratulate you on your determination in sticking with various plans.

You’re an inspiration to many!

This week we still have our double dash, virtual 5K event too. Good luck to all the pairs competing, please remember to submit your times to Kevin before Sunday 4th October.

Another inter club virtual event is likely to start in the next week or so, with Knaresborough Striders taking the lead. Once I know the detail I will be in touch.

We will shortly be announcing the results of our virtual road championship, of course, if you did 4 of the 7 races you will automatically receive a specially designed cloth badge as a memento.

So, onto this weeks plans.
