Week Ahead – Sunday 27th October 2019

Afternoon All

Is it just me and my age but does anyone else feel as though this year is flying by? Only one week to go before we get to showcase the beautiful Nidd Valley, our friendly club, and deliver a cracking 10 mile road race!

Yes, Guy Fawkes 10 next Sunday. I’ve popped a few reminders in the email further down, but Debbie Dilasser will be able to help with queries regarding the marshal plan and Sam Fugill with any other queries.

I caught up with Jeff Walker on Tuesday and met a lovely bunch of enthusiastic couch to 5K participants. They were happy hanging on to every word Jeff was saying and enjoying a fun filled warm up routine. I’m sure a few will be joining the club at the end of this programme.Great work Jeff!

I must say though I had running envy and wanted to join in!

So, the week ahead.

Week Ahead – Monday 21st October 2019

Good morning everyone

Well, I returned from my Norwegian cruise yesterday to learn all about your phenomenal racing over the weekend. What an achievement by everyone!
We had members running marathons in York and Amsterdam and a male and female team in the British fell relay races in the Peak District. This is the first time we’ve had a female team, it’s a huge event in the fell racing calendar and quite an achievement for anyone to compete in such an event.

Congratulations to everyone taking part.

As you might expect I’m a little out of touch after my holiday but hope to be at the club on Tuesday to catch up and meet our couch to 5k Runners too. Sadly, I won’t be running as I’m still injured.

Please look out for emails relating to our Guy Fawkes race over the next few days as it’s only two weeks away. The marshals plan is complete and I know Debbie Dilasser has forwarded this to everyone involved.
Sam Fugill is our race director and has everything in hand but as the race approaches there may be additional emails with information or requests for assistance.

So, onto the week ahead.

Tuesday 22/10/19.
Once again I was thinking of leaving this up to those people at the club as it’s been a heavy weekend of racing.

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.
