What’s been going on and what’s happening next?

Good evening all and well done to everyone who has been racing at Harrogate 10km and Endure 24. Mark has kindly updated the results website with the latest results from Burton Leonard and Otley 10m which you can see here:


Please check and let Kevin or Sarah know if any results are missing.  Harrogate 10k results will be updated later in the week.

While we’re on the subject of racing, don’t forget that our target race York 10k is less than a month away. Get entering guys! The deadline for entry is Friday 23/07/2021 and the link to enter is here:


In other news NVRR have a team of 6 taking part in a challenge initiated by Harrogate Hospital & Community Charity during which challengers collectively cover the distance of 2,573,066 km over 31 days.  This number reflects the population numbers that Harrogate and District NHS serves.  We can contribute to this target through walking, running, swimming, cycling or any other physical activity. All donations received go towards making life changing differences to patients and their families across Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust. Rob will soon be setting up a fundraising page for us so we hope you will donate to this fantastic local cause.

So now to this week. On Tuesday is intervals (7 pm at the Hockey club field) with England Athletics Coach Darren again. I’m guessing he may have some slightly longer intervals for us as a progression from last week, but you’ll have to come along to find out! Saying that though, the intervals are suitable for everyone, regardless of your running speed.

On Thursday is club run as usual. Ready to run at 7 pm from the Hockey club. If you’d like a suggested route here is a link to route 1 2 AKA Jennyfields

Or you can choose a different route either on or off road if you have someone to lead the way. As Sarah said last week, please look after each other and make sure no one gets left behind.

Her are the suggested pacing groups:

8 – 8:30 min miles
8:30 – 9 min miles
9 – 9:30 min miles
9:30 – 10 min miles
10 – 10:30 min miles
10:30 – 11:30 min miles

I don’t think there are any champs races next weekend, so I bet someone will be organising a weekend run. Watch this space and facebook!

Ok, that’s all for now, I think! Have a great week,
