Week Ahead Sunday 18th October 2020

Afternoon All

As always I hope this finds you well and managing the ever changing COVID restrictions for the various parts of the Country.

At the committee meeting last Wednesday, we discussed our winter interval sessions, a cross country virtual race series and ideas for the next inter club challenge in November. I would ask that you to watch this space, but I can tell you that the intervals will start on Tuesday 3rd November with the first block of 6 sessions.

The badges for the virtual road races should be with us soon too. You may need to  brush up on your sewing skills if you’re planning on putting it on your club kit.

I know times are challenging and its not the same, being able to run freely without thinking about social distancing. Not having a race to focus your efforts in training and indeed running in general is also tough, but hopefully the intervals and the cross country virtual races will help keep you motivated during the winter.

Please keep to groups of 6 where at all possible, this is not a hard and fast rule for us but its what the public expect to see. We have received some feedback regarding social distancing so we need to remain vigilant to the publics perception of us. Its important that we maintain our good reputation.

On a positive note, Sylvia has submitted the club donation to Long Lands Common. If you visit their website and look under “About” there is a subsection titled “Friends of Long Lands Common” which lists our club logo along with several others.

As an additional option on Thursday evening, Phil Robinson will lead a 6 miles head-torch run from Brimham Rocks.

You never know it could turn into a bit of a mini adventure too! Please meet in the entrance to the Brimham Rocks car park (double yellows) at 6.45pm and he’ll guide you to the parking spot.

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.

Week Ahead – 20th September 2020

Afternoon All

I hope you’re all well and have enjoyed this fine weather of late.

I’m afraid this week’s email will have to focus our minds towards COVID.19, with the rise in cases and potential tighter controls over the horizon. Obviously, we want to keep meeting as a club and enjoy the benefits that brings, but it comes with responsibilities.

The Rule of 6.

So, the rule of 6 doesn’t actually apply to us as we’re classed as COVID secure and organised sport.

That said, the Committee agrees that limiting our groups to  6 allows for better social distancing and is a sensible precaution to avoid spreading the infection, should anyone have it, and is good for public perception.

Of course, we can have as many groups of 6 as we need.

Club Vests and Tee Shirts.

Public perception of runners and of our club is important, and for that reason we are asking that you refrain from wearing your club vests or tee shirts.

Updated Club COVID19 Risk Assessment.

Please read the updated COVID19 Risk Assessment which has updates to our risk assessment. There are aspects to the risk assessment that place a responsibility on individuals when attending the club.

Photo.

We intend to take a photo of each group of 6 to ensure we know who attended the club, should there be a need to trace someone we will know who attended. Doing this negates the need to use the booking on system we were using in July. If you are uncomfortable with this, please inform a Committee member at the time and leave details with a run leader.

Reporting and contacting others.

Should you experience symptoms after attending the club, you must inform any member of the Committee and also inform all the people you were running with.

Run Leaders.

Each group of 6 should nominate a person to be the run leader. This does not have to be a qualified person just someone to take the lead.

Finally, Running!

Well, the inter club challenge of 30 minutes running was obviously made for us as we won the overall competition, with 2nd place for ladies and gentlemen too. Well done to everyone who took part.

We have our 5K double up challenge starting soon too, so watch out for the information from Kevin and Sarah.

The Week Ahead.

Tuesday  22/9/20.

Group 1. – Approx 8 to 8.30 minute mile pace

Week Ahead 13th September 2020

Afternoon All

As always, I hope this finds you safe and well and you’re managing to keep up with the latest COVID guidance. As you might expect, I’m having to mention it in this weeks email.

Our plan is to continue meeting on a Tuesday and Thursday evening, outside the hockey club. We just need to ensure that we are in groups of 6 as we set off to run, and stay like that during the run. Once again, I ask that you don’t wear your Nidd vests whilst you’re out running, we don’t want to draw attention to ourselves, particularly, if for some reason, we end up looking as though were a group of more than 6.

This applies to any weekend run too, if it’s a club-organised event such as those Dave Seaman has kindly organised over the Summer.

In other news, there were 95 members who voted on the proposal to donate £200 of club funds to the Long Lands Common initiative, all 95 were in favour. Thank you.

You still have until 6pm tonight to compete in the virtual inter club 30 minute challenge; so if you haven’t already done so, get your kit on and go for it. Don’t forget to post before 6pm on the dedicated inter-club Facebook page.

On a similar note, watch out for the ‘double dash’ virtual challenge Kevin and Sarah are organising, another chance to test yourself. Starts the week commencing 21st September but they need to know if you’re interested by 18th September.

Make a mental note of who is in your group.

Please do NOT ATTEND the club runs if you feel ill or have any COVID.19 symptoms and should you feel ill after attending the club with any COVID.19 symptoms please inform a member of the Committee as soon as possible, so we can trace other people in your group.

This is especially important as we are no longer using the booking on system.
