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.

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.

Please use the link for full details. Club Routes. Read the route please.

Thursday 24/9/20

7pm Hockey Club.

 Route: 4. Knox. 5.7miles

Please use the link for full details. Club Routes. Read the route please.

 

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 and inform the people you ran with.

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.

Week Ahead – Sunday 30th August 2020

Afternoon All

Welcome to another busy week ahead with lots of running opportunities, a zoom meeting and a vote!

I’ll start with my final reminder regarding membership subs. England Athletic extended the deadline for subs to this bank holiday Monday, 31st August so you’re not too late if you want to submit today. Membership Renewal Form 

Virtual Races. Yes two!

We have a second inter club virtual race starting at 9am on Tuesday 1st September until 6pm on Sunday 13th September. This has been arranged by Ripon Runners with a more equal scoring system rather than the previous one, where the club with the most runners were almost guaranteed to win.

Its simple too, run as far as you can over your chosen route for 30 mins and record your distance in Km. Upload your distance together with a selfie to the dedicated FB page or email Sarah or Kevin with your result. Only one distance to be submitted, don’t keep submitting improved times. They will only accept your first result.

This event is not to be confused with the last of our very own virtual running race which just happens to cross over on some of the dates for the inter club one. This is also a case of running anywhere for 30 minutes and recording your distance.

Of course that means if you time it right you can make one huge effort and use your distance for both events.

Our club dates are Monday 31/8/20 to Sunday  6th September. Results to be emailed to Sarah or Kevin please.

Zoom Session.

We have our question and answer session on the proposed donation to long lands common at 7.30pm on Wednesday 2/9/20.

Extraordinary AGM. Voting on Long Lands Common Donation.

We have an extraordinary AGM taking place in the form of a on line survey monkey vote on Sunday 6/9/20. Please refer to my previous email the W/C 24/8/20 for full details. Kevin Dalton will also forward more details closer to next weekend.

We need you to participate as without 20 % of our members doing so we cannot continue with the meeting.

 

So, onto our club nights.

Tuesday 1/9/20. 7pm Hockey Club.

Route 2. Knaresborough 7 miles. In reverse.

I’ve suggested this as its scenic and doing it in reverse makes a refreshing change!

There will be an off road route on offer too, setting off from the club.

Please use the link for full details. Club Routes

Thursday 3/9/20

7pm Hockey Club.

Route:  To be decided on the evening.

There will be an option to run off road from the club too.

Dave Seaman will be leading his band of merry people on another off road.

6.30pm start. Staveley, around the nature reserve for approximately 10K.  Further details to follow from Dave.

COVID.19.

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.

Pacing Groups. Social Run.

Group 1. – Approx 8 to 8.30 minute mile pace

Group 2. – Approx 9 to 9.30 minute mile pace

Group 3. – Approx 10 to 10.30 minute mile pace

Group 5 –  Social, recovery run with no pace in mind but a chance to chat as you jog, going as far as you want.

Health and Safety Briefing. (Darker evenings!)

Warm up and stretch off after running.

Head torch and fluorescent clothing. Yes its that time of year again. If you’re out for a long run, the weather is grim please consider your visibility to other road users. Stay safe.

Report any injuries to Bec Carman our Welfare Rep, or any Committee member.
