Seasonal parkruns… make mine a double?

Once again there are some exciting opportunities to parkrun on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day for those who are interested! The following list published by parkrun shows those locations which are holding extra events in the next 10 days: parkrun Christmas Compendium

2019

On New Year’s Day, parkrun are once again allowing the option to register up to two results on the same day, with some events coordinating their start-times to allow you to run twice! Some ‘keen’ Striders are already planning to kickstart their new year by ‘doing the double’ – some at York/Heslington and others at Pontefract/Nostell.

Remember to check your favoured parkrun’s webpage for latest news and updates.

Saucony try-on, 11th December

On Tuesday 11th December, training will include the chance to try on Saucony’s Peregrine 8 and Koa ST shoes, courtesy of our friends at Up & Running, Harrogate.

Our session will be based on the Cricket Club field so that you can try out the trail shoes in their natural habitat!

As you can see in the poster below, there will be some fantastic offers available on the night – bring card or cash, just in case!

Meet from 7pm at the Cricket Club.

Still in the dark about hi-viz?

The clocks have gone back and we’re firmly into our dark training sessions now. You might also be heading out solo in the dark from time-to-time…

Can you be seen  …well enough?  …soon enough?

We make no apologies for regularly banging on about your visibility, but it’s so important and makes such a difference to all of our safety. If you aren’t already convinced as to the benefits of wearing bright colours, hi-viz and lights, then perhaps the information below might convince you?

Remember that we always have some hi-viz vests available to borrow on club nights, and ‘going hi-viz’ yourself need not be expensive, with simple bibs and lights available for only a few pounds online. If you need advice and recommendations look no further than your fellow members!

Take care out there!

Pondering what colour to put on your Christmas list? It might just make a difference!

Just a bit of hi-viz and lighting makes an incredible difference!
