A fair number of people were highlighted in the club survey who enjoyed racing, but didn’t like the pressure of Club Championship races.
So, keen to offer a solution as always, we have pulled this list of suggestions together and called them “Just for Fun” races – you can race and represent team Nidd, but they DON’T count towards any of our club championships or for your badge. (So make sure you aren’t booking any of these on the same day as – or too near, a club championship race if you are chasing those points).
They allow you to support a local race without any pressure of points or places, just enter, run and enjoy it!
We have also added some of the races where there will be a fun run too – great if the Juniors are taking part in these that they have some senior club support to cheer them on.
Just for Fun race list.
We may add to or take off this list as we go through the year, some dates are still TBC and will be added later. If you have any other races you think would be fun to take part in, are local-ish and they don’t clash with dates on our championship list, send them in to Captain Kev or me and we can have a look at including them.
