Club Road Champs Race 3 – The Guiseley Gallop – Sunday 21 April

Good evening runners, 

Here is an early reminder about the Guiseley Gallop which is on Easter Sunday. This is round 3 of our club road champs, although it is actually a 10K trail race which involves a mixture of road and off road including some rocky and wooded sections which can be a bit muddy.

Entries are still open for the next week or so; I don’t know whether it will sell out or if there are entries on the day but better to be safe and enter now. 

After scoring some champs points you can reward yourself by ending your Lenton vows with some Easter egg. 

Usual stuff: wear your club vest, car share if possible, enjoy yourself.

 I hold you in my arms, as the band plays
What are those words whispered baby just as you turn away
I saw you last night, out on the edge of town
I want to read your mind, to know just what I’ve got in this new thing I’ve found
So tell me what I see when I look in your eyes
Is that you baby or just a brilliant disguise

Next up in race 3 in the Fell Championships – Buckden Out Moor this coming Saturday, more details here.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and I will see some of you tomorrow at the Peco Relays.

Thursday 04/04/19 – Social Run

The clocks are changing :). Sarah C and Dave S are looking to run a route down to Nidd Gorge. I’d recommend bring off road shoes and a head torch and please stay with a group.

Route – I’d recommend a route down the greenway which will give options for groups to split down the gorge or continue to Killinghall and back through Knox.

Groups can then head back via the iron bridge and back to club

NVRR Road Champs round 2 – Fountains Abbey Parkrun – Saturday 30 March

Evening Niddstars,

Usual reminder about round 2 of the club road champs which is on Saturday 30 March at Fountains Abbey Parkrun and a chance to score some more points. Even if you’re not intending to do other champs races you’re more than welcome to join the party, it should be a good social event. Usual club and parkrun rules apply:
– Wear your club vest
– Don’t forget your barcode
– Try to car share as much as possible (parking could be tight so don’t leave it late)

If you’re coming along to watch perhaps you might consider volunteering – please contact fountainsabbeyhelpers@parkrun.com

Note you need to be through the courtyard gate to the Abbey by 8:50 am at the latest or you will not be allowed through (you have been warned)

We have been asked not to run round the course again after finishing

It would be nice to get a big team photo in front of the Abbey, can we try for 8:50 down by the start area and can someone bring their phone/camera please?

After the run it will be up to the cafe for lashings of coffee and hot crumpets.

I don’t mind the sun sometimes, the images it shows
I can taste you on my lips and smell you in my clothes
Cinnamon and sugary and softly spoken lies
You never know just how to look through other people’s eyes

Some will die in hot pursuit and fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit while sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life and drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche coming down the mountain

(one for the Butthole Surfers fans there)
