This week’s running

Hi Nidd People!

Well done if you raced at Burton Leonard or anywhere else this weekend! Hope no one got sunburnt out there!

So, this week is the last of the 6 weeks of hills on Tuesday, before we move on to phase two of the 10km plan! Watch this space next week for details of intervals with England Atheltics Coach, Darren. But for now, check the spread sheet, sign in or out, and enjoy the last hill session! OR go for a run from the Hockey club if you prefer.

Here is the spreadsheet:

On Thursday it’s club run starting 7 pm as usual. We’re up to route 11 on the list but feel free to deviate to another road route or off road route. https://osmaps.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/route/3451656/NVRR-Route-11-Supermarket-Sweep

Dave S has told me that we are now OK to park nearer the Hockey club changing rooms as footie has finished for the time being. The toilets are accessible from the side door, but please remember social distancing if entering the building.

Here are the usual suggested paces for you:

Group 1: 8 to 8:30 min miles

Group 2: 8:30 – 9 min miles

Group 3: 9 – 9:30 min miles

Group 4: 9:30 – 10 min miles

Group 5: 10:30 – 11 min miles

Group 6: 11 – 12 min miles

Finally, good luck to everyone running in the Cleveland way relay next weekend. Have a great time out there 🙂

Take care all and have a good week

Emma

HDSRL 2021 – Exciting Announcement

Hi team Nidd,

Harrogate and District Summer Race League (Evening League)

Exciting news! With thanks to an enormous organisational effort from our very own Dave Seaman and of course all of the member clubs, our much-loved ‘evening league’ is back for 2021, with two in person races and plenty of virtual races with specific courses to follow. Wetherby are hosting an in person race on the 21 July and Harrogate Harriers on the 2 September.

Please enter this year’s series from tomorrow, Monday 7th June hereHarrogate District Summer Race League 2021 – RaceBest. You may have already signed up last year, you will receive an email if so, but do check.

You can also take a look at the courses on the HDSRL website for more details, there are more to add over the next few days.  HDSRL – Harrogate District Summer Race League (harrogate-league.org.uk).

I have attached a full announcement to this email as well so you please read all the information in there and online.

To ensure we encourage club participation we will also include the two in person races at Wetherby and Harrogate in our road championships so for a bargain entry fee of £15 you get 2 races to count towards your badge as well as the evening league competition.

Please support our evening league, like many races we need to safeguard it’s future by racing this year, albeit in a slightly different format to the one we are used to.

For those new to club or evening league, these races offer a great chance to encourage each other, wear your club colours with pride and run with (or against 😉) friends and rivals from other local clubs.

Supporting this year with your race entry will enable us to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the league next year. Long may our much-loved summer race tradition continue.

Thank you
Captains Sarah & Kevin 😊

P.S.

Running in the evening league races could get you selected for team GB! Thank you to Fell running Phil who sent this little gem of a fact over to me last night!

Marc Scott who secured selection for Tokyo in the British 10,000m Olympic Trials used to run for Richmond&Zetland in the Evening League.He ran our race in 2010. An example from the archives: http://www.harrogate-league.org.uk/archive.php?year=2010&page=results&race=ilkley

No more persuasion needed- do enter these races!!

Countryside Code

It’s great to see so many Nidds getting off-road in recent years and enjoying the hills, trails and brilliant footpath network North Yorkshire and beyond has to offer. Over 140,000 miles of it in the UK. We should of course cherish this. It’s a huge national asset.

You may or may not be aware of the Countryside Code. It’s been produced by Natural England and its predecessors since the 1950’s. In short a Highway Code for the countryside. In April 2021 a new rendition was published. It’s a mix of both legal requirements and good respectful advice.

If you hit the footpath network, please may I ask that you give it a read. I’ve attached a short summary here and a link to the full version on the .gov.uk website.

http://www.gov.uk/countryside-code

Both of these are on the Fell Running section of the Nidd website too.

Happy running on our glorious footpath network.

Spreadsheets and routes for this week!

Hi all! Hope you’re all enjoying the sunshine! At last! yay!

This is just a quick email to remind you that it is another set of hills this week if you are doing intervals. Here is the spreadsheet to check where you are:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13tbj-KL8pAoyZiYx3ZeSsTKtc8Hs7i24bRh1Z__O1KE/edit#gid=2071125347

There will also be a run from the club if you prefer.

On Thursday I believe we are up to route 9 which is via Green lane:

https://osmaps.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/route/3451543/NVRR-Route-9-Green-Lane

Or I bet there will be an off road option as Dave S is back 🙂

Don’t forget to have a go at the paced run if you are following the 10 km plan. Try to group together with others of a similar speed so that you can all work together to keep the pace going.

Some suggested pacing groups as follows:

Group 1: 8 to 8:30 min miles

Group 2: 8:30 – 9 min miles

Group 3: 9 – 9:30 min miles

Group 4: 9:30 – 10 min miles

Group 5: 10 – 11 min miles

Have a great bank holiday and see you all soon,

Emma x
