The Week Ahead. Week Commencing 29th April 2019

Hello Everyone
Hope you’re all well and back into the swing of things after Easter.
A rather detailed email this week, so I’ll get straight down to business.

Final subs reminder. There are a few members yet to pay their subs. I’m afraid by the end of April renewals will not be chased and your membership with the club is at risk! We don’t want to lose anyone so please pay your subs.

Monthly Newsletter. The monthly newsletter will be attached to next weeks email. We still need a name for the newsletter so get your thinking caps on and send suggestions to Kevin Dalton. We will take a club vote to identify the most popular name. If you have any memorable moments, significant race results or appropriate stories to share please let Kevin know.

NVRR Lead Coach.Emma Kicks has kindly agreed to be the official lead coach for the club. There will be more information about her role and what it means to you in the monthly newsletter.Emma has a lot of knowledge and experience in running and coaching runners and will be a great asset as our club coach.

NVRR Park Run Representative. Colleen Gruenwald has kindly taken on this non-committee role to coordinate any NVRR park run takeovers. Colleen regularly performs the role of park run director and will use this experience during our park run takeovers.

Advance Notice. Wetherby Park Run Take Over. 
We will be taking over Wetherby park run on 22nd June 2019. This is a local park run that we’ve included in our championship races. Lets support them and make the take over one to remember. Volunteers and cake will be essential! Graham Hyde has kindly offered and will support Colleen at Wetherby.

Advance Notice. Fell Running Taster Sesssion.Cath Barber and Emma Kicks will be holding a fell running taster session on Tuesday 7th May.

The Week Ahead. 

Tuesday 30/4/19Bed Race Training.
6 weeks to go and bed race training has started!The bed captains are Matt Wilkinson – Mens A team, Sam Fugill – Mens B team and Dave Prince – Mixed B team. Dave and his mixed team will be running the bed race route with the bed at 7.15pm from Conyngham Hall, Knaresborough. All are welcome to join him and run the route. It’s excellent speed endurance training and hill training without any pressure, not to mention fun.

Intervals. Ben Baird is a man on a mission and running his own interval session. He’s inviting anyone to join him but stresses that he’s not actually coaching.Again this is a great opportunity to run a specific interval session at your own pace in the company of like-minded people.
