The Week Ahead

Hey everyone! Another Nidd email today! This one is the details of whatever is occurring in the Nidd Valley running world this week. Well, whatever I am aware of any way!

Firstly though, well done all the bog trotters and face planters at Round hill fell race today! I know I was in up to my waist at one point…….fun fun!

On Tuesday we have a run from the club as usual. If you want a route how about this one, or a variation of, it or something completely different if you wish:

Suggested pacing groups are:

8 – 8:30 min miles

8:30 – 9 min miles

9 – 9:30 min miles

9:30 – 10 min miles

10 – 10:30 min miles

10:30 – 11:30 min miles

Then on Thursday we have the annual Almscliffe crag run, but this year we will not be getting the train. Graham and Sylvia have organised fantastic routes up to the crag for us from Burn Bridge or Weeton. Here are the details from G and S:

Meet in Burn Bridge. Parking is available along Malthouse Lane but car sharing is encouraged. Please NO NOT PARK IN THE PUB CAR PARK. We will set off at 7pm and follow the ringway to The Warren and continue straight ahead to Almscliff Crag via North Rigton. A well know route by many Nidders.

 We will aim to meet a group lead by Sylvia who are taking a 4.5 mile or so circular route from Weeton Station car park starting at 7pm and at a (very) sociable pace

 Obligatory photo at the Crag summit followed by a return to North Righton along the same path but then turning left along the road and then right onto the footpath towards Leyfield Farm, Blaberry Croft Farm to meet the road and a right turn toward Brackenthwaite then finding the footpath on the left to go off road again to return to Burn Bridge.

There are no championship races this week or next weekend, so just enjoy running out with friends and have a great week,
