The Week Ahead w/c 12th July 2020

Afternoon All,

Well, doesn’t it feel good to be back!

Tuesday’s evening run was a little bit different and at times awkward, but I saw lots of happy Nidders, lots of sensible Nidders running at a safe social distance, all in groups of 6 so I’m calling that a success!

Thanks to all the people leading groups and to all of you for just being yourselves!

Thursday’s road group went without any hiccups too, and I enjoyed the off road route around Thruscross Reservoir.

Of course, this past week some members have been doing their mile runs, as part of our virtual road race championship. I understand from our captains that lots of you have taken part and there’s been some great performances. You still have until midnight tonight to email your results to Captains Sarah or Kevin.

So, the week ahead.

Route 1. Valley Gardens. 7.25 miles

Virtual Road Race Championship.
5 Miles Off Road.

Off road, we’re thinking not necessarily full on fell, moor, bogs, sand dunes or mountains unless of course you chose to do that, but definitely not tarmac roads, athletic tracks or treadmills!
We trust you, yes I know, how naive of us!
If the vast majority of your route is off road then its an off road route but lets play fair!

You will need to have paid your subs to join in on the club night runs. Membership Renewal Form 

If you’re unsure if you have paid, contact Sylvia who will be able to help. sylviamorten1@gmail.com

So onto the good bits.

Were doing the supermarket sweep route which can be found through the following link. Club Routes Route 11.

Sarah Chalmers is leading an off road route and wants to remind you about appropriate footwear, it’s slippery out there at the moment so your racing flats might not be the best option!

There will be an off road option too.

In other news-

Sylvia has asked me to mention a clothing update.

Up and Running, Harrogate, have a stock of the new club vests at the still subsidised price of £15.

They also have a number of the previous style vests priced at £10 each – both styles are equally valid to race in.

We also have a few of the new style club short sleeved T shirts for sale on a first come first served basis priced at £22.20 (remember this is the cheaper price and future orders will be at a higher price)

If you would like one, please email Sylvia (sylviamorten1@gmail.com) and remit the appropriate money to the club account.

Ladies fit:

1 x XS size 8

1 x S size 10

1 x M size 12

Message from the Chair Sunday 28th June 2020

Well, hello everyone, its been a long time!

I hope this finds you all fit, healthy and well and looking forward to a return to some running from the Hockey Club. England Athletics has provided clubs with advice and guidance on managing runners returning to club runs whilst still following government guidelines.

As a committee we have taken the decision to begin running from the Hockey Club on Tuesday 7th July 2020 at 7pm and each Tuesday and Thursday thereafter.

This particular week also coincides with the start of our virtual club championship races with a 1 mile distance listed.

There is a new page on the web site which you can access very easily by clicking the COVID19 image on the front page.  This is the place for all your COVID19 runnign related questions and information.

I am the COVID19 Coordinator for the club and as part of that role a risk assessment has been completed in line with England Athletic guidelines. This can be found on our web site, COVID19 Risk Assessment please take the time to read it.

In addition, a briefing note has been written, which outlines how the club running will take place. It’s a bit prescriptive I’m afraid, but I’m sure you’ll understand that it’s also necessary.  The COVID19 Briefing Note is also available on our web site.

The success or otherwise of our return to club running will require everyone to take personal responsibility for ensuring compliance with government guidelines to reduce the risk of spreading COVID19.

To return to club running you will need to be fully paid up members, so if you haven’t already done so please use the link and sign up.  Membership Renewal Form If you can’t remember if you have, or have not renewed please email Sylvia sylviamorten1@gmail.com and she will let you know the situation.

I’m really looking forward to seeing you on the 7th July to enjoy some great running and company. We will begin with the old favourite, Supermarket Sweep route and a group heading down the Nidd Gorge.  We have a list of Club Routes now available also on our web site.

As I said at the beginning of this, its been too long!

Best wishes

Christine

Nidd Valley Virtual Championships – 2020

Hello All,

I hope you’re all well. As previously communicated by Christine we’ve been working on the Nidd Valley Virtual Championships. This is to generate a bit of competition and motivation whilst we all can’t be together to race.

Virtual Races will consist of 7 events in the months of July, August and September:

WC 06/07/20 – 1 Mile
WC 13/07/20 – 5 Mile Off Road
WC 20/07/20 – 5 km
WC 27/07/20 – 10 km/mob match (2 weeks) – Mob Match Details are currently being finalised and subject to change.
WC 10/08/20 – 10 Mile
WC 24/08/20 – Half Marathon
WC 31/08/20 – 30 Minute distance challenge

There will be a participation badge for those who have completed 4 out of the 7 races. Prizes will be awarded to female and male overall winners and female and male Age Adjusted winners.

Points will be allocated the same way as the existing championships and the best 4 results will determine your final position.

Results need to be emailed to Sarah and Me by 21:00 on the Sunday night at the end of the race week – we will submit these to Mark for the website. I know not all members use Strava, Garmin or have GPS watches. As a result evidence is not required for submitting results. We’re going on your trust for the virtual championships.

Race Rules/Guidelines –
• Try and keep courses as Net Flat – e.g. Circular or Out and back
• Do not stop and pause watches mid race
• Keep within social distancing rules
• Must be a paid member by the 31/08/2020
Thank you to Martin, Sarah and Christine who have supported putting this together.

Any questions let me know?

Thanks

Kevin
(Head Boy)
