The first week of a new month in Nidd Valley with Captains Corner, and last call for club kit!

So much has been going on AGAIN this weekend! Parkrun and Grewelthorpe in the Champs and of course people doing virtual and actual London Marathon, and even an ultra marathon! Epic achievements all round.

The week ahead is looking good too:

On Tuesday and Thursday we have club run at 6:45 for a 7 pm start as usual. Don’t forget your Hi Viz. The route on Tuesday will be Cold Bath Road 6.84 miles ish Over iron bridge, turn left, Woodfield Road, Skipton Road, Kings Road, Cold Bath Road, Pannal Ash Road, Green Lane, M&S, St Aidans, Slingsby Walk, Claro Road. To cut short, after Cold Bath Road, go left on Otley Road, York Place, Claro Road.

The first Thursday in the month is the evening when we welcome any new members wishing to try us out. So if there are any runners you know looking for a club to join, do bring them along! There will be paced groups as always and no one will be left behind, but please make sure you look after anyone you bring along. The route will be the Duchy route which is less than 6 miles. So a good one for a try out with the club. Claro Road, Skipton Road, Kings Road, Coppice Drive or Springfield Road to Ripon Road, Duchy Road, Cornwall Road, Harlow Moor Road, Otley Road, York Place, Claro Road.

It would be amazing to see some new faces leading groups on club nights. No qualifications needed. Shout up or volunteer on the night if you’re interested.

At the weekend is Richmond 10km which is another in the road championships. Good luck if you’re doing that! It’s not flat but it’s a great race.
