Captain’s Corner, the week ahead and club kit!

Hi Team Nidd,

As we come back from the summer holidays and autumn marathon training ramps up, a reminder to keep an eye on the Road champs races coming up for the second half of the season, so you can grab a few last minute points if you need them.
The full list is here Road Championship (2021) – Nidd Valley Road Runners
We keep this up to date should races be moved or dates changed so keep a check on this page.

Tadcaster 10mile is now open for entries, please make sure you didn’t enter in 2020 before entering this year (I can’t imagine who would be that silly! 😉)
Same for Tholthorpe as they don’t allow refunds or transfers for that one either.

A few people have asked about a parkrun as one of the road champ races, we have Fountains parkrun now on the 2nd October. This is a day before Grewelthorpe multi terrain on the 3rd October, so pick your races wisely.

The second in person evening league takes place on the 2nd September and is in Harrogate, you can still enter this race at a discounted rate of £10 if you haven’t already. I have a lot of numbers not collected and will be at club on Tuesday or at the fish and chip run on Thursday this week and will bring them along so you can collect from me then or on the race evening itself. For full details of the Harrogate race click here – the link to enter is on this page too.
HDSRL – Harrogate District Summer Race League

Finally I will email separately with details of the fish and chip run so look out for that and send me your pre orders. You just need to remember to bring your cash (correct amount if possible please) on Thursday.

Keep on running,
Captain Sarah 😊

Now for the other stuff happening this week!

Tuesday is run from club 7 pm kick off as usual. Routes to choose from if you need one are here:

With suggested pace groups here:
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

If you’d like an interval set to do here is this week’s suggestion:

Warm up as usual with drills and then the main set is 10 x 3 mins at tempo pace with only 45 seconds off! So the key here will be to get the pacing right and not go off at full blast on the first one! Give me a shout if you’d like more detail.

On Thursday the Fish and Chip shop run from Knaresborough returns! We will be meeting in the market place at Knaresborough near the statue on the bench. Sarah will be sending out more details about this together with a menu so watch out for her email.

I’m not sure what’s happening at the weekend, but do get together with NVRR friends for a run or to socialise in some other way!

Last but certainly not least, you have a chance to get some fab new club kit ordered! Here is a message from Graham about it:

Orders for Club Merchandise are now OPEN!!! We have short and long sleave t-shirts available in a range of sizes and fits. Order now for Christmas treats for your favourite Nidder!

Take a look on the club web site at the sizing guides and order your items here:

We need a minimum order so we will review where we are by the end of September with orders.

That’s all for now folks!

See you all soon
