Week Ahead – Sunday 6th October 2019

Afternoon All

Congratulations to all the Nidders running the Chester marathon today. I hope you all had a great experience and are still in one piece!

Well done to everyone racing at Grewelthorpe this morning too, I had hoped to be there to cheer you on but last minute holiday packing got in the way.

So yes I’m off to sample the delights of Norway and by sheer coincidence our Guy Fawkes 10 race director Sam is off to warmer climates for exactly the same dates. Great planning I hear you say as we head towards race date early November. Fear not, everything is in hand, but please make a note of the following dates as options for recce runs of the route and leaflet dropping.

Saturday 12th, Sunday 13th, Saturday 19th, Sunday 20th October.

We have an exciting week ahead with the start of our ‘zip to zoomers’ couch to 5K training course starting on Tuesday. Jeff Walker will be at the club with a group of eager new runners ready for a briefing in the bar at 7pm. If you see them give them the usual warm welcome please.

The Week Ahead.

I suggest you see who turns up and decide a route on the evening. I’m sure there will be some tired legs!

[NVRR] PECO XC League

Hello mud lovers,
Early heads-up that entries for the PECO XC League are now open. This is our winter cross-country inter-club race series and also forms the main basis of our individual club XC championships.
There are five races in the series and it only costs £15 to enter the full series (you can also enter races individually if you wish but each one costs £7). If you have any questions please just shout up.
For those who haven’t taken part in the races before they are generally in the Leeds area and most of the courses are around 5 miles. There is a really friendly atmosphere – a bit like Summer Evening League and food is usually available after each race. It would be great to get a really big Nidd Valley turnout again this year and consolidate our place in the league.
So please get entering. Sarah C or I will send out reminders for each individual race nearer the time, the first one being on Sunday 24 November at the beautiful Temple Newsam.
Captain G

Week Ahead – Sunday 29th September 2019

Evening All,

I just have to begin by congratulating everyone who travelled to Redcar today, on what had to be one of the wettest days for months!

We had people racing in the junior 2K, the 5K, 10K and of course our championship race, the half marathon. There was a huge sense of team spirit, with people pushing themselves to personal bests, people doing their very first half marathon and others giving support to the runners.

Well done team Nidd!

Moving on to the week ahead we have our usual club nights, a committee meeting and another championship race at the weekend.

The Week Ahead – Sunday 22nd September 2019

Afternoon All,

Hope everyone is well and enjoying some good running and, of course, the UCI World Cycling Championships. It was great to see so many of you this morning at the Crag Rat Race. Well done to everyone.

I thought it would be a good idea to give you some brief information on a few things planned in the near future, and what’s going on behind the scenes as we head further into Autumn/Winter.

Our plogging event was very well received and thanks to Sarah Chalmers we’ve received a good cause award of £250 from Taylors of Harrogate / Bettys. We intend to buy large bin bags, litter pickers and gloves for next time with this money.

Sarah and Martin our team captains have compiled the 2019/2020 winter cross country races for our championships. Full information can be found on our website. Run 5 races and you’ll receive a medal!

Jeff Walker is taking the lead on another couch to 5K training course which starts early October and judging by the number of enquiries, its going to be a huge success.

October is considered a rest or quiet month in terms of coached sessions for us but the usual Tuesday and Thursday sessions will take place from the hockey club.

Sam Fugill has been busy in recent months pulling together our Guy Fawkes 10 mile race. Everything is on track, with places sold out in record time! There will be recce runs of the route throughout October. It’s a steady pace for everyone involved so don’t be shy.

We have a Nidd Valley social quiz charity event in the planning for 22nd November. No running involved just intellect and a sense of fun. Nadene will be sending out full information very soon.

Emma Kicks will be coordinating winter interval sessions starting in November in blocks of 6 weeks.

Finally, we are in the early stages of linking up with other local clubs to coordinate a Round Harrogate Relay Run with teams from each club. The date is yet to be confirmed but January is looking good.

The Week Ahead.

Tuesday 24/9/19.
Social run from the hockey club or an easy interval session for those of you following the half marathon plan.

There is a running festival taking place in Redcar so if you’re travelling independently please leave plenty of time for parking as I expect it will be restricted and limited.
