March 2019 parkrun results

Parkrun report – March 2019

parkrun reportMarch 2019 saw our largest number of parkruns in one month so far this year – 112 – helped, no doubt, by the five chances to parkrun, but also great considering that two weekends featured abominable weather! The furthest distance travelled goes without doubt to Ruth (over 10,000 miles) who popped up in Australia – that’s some serious parkrun tourism.

What is listed below is: Finishing Position, Gender Position, Name and Time.

 


 

2nd March

Round two of our club championship meant that of the 40 Striders out at parkrun, 39 were at just the one venue! Boosted by our turnout and that of many SRG visitors, a record total of 625 runners took part. More details of this one in our March race results.

Time Trial Cakes – for a great cause!

Cakes in a good cause!

Claire Mckenzie will be holding a cake sale tomorrow evening after our Time Trial, to raise funds towards her London Marathon effort later this month. She is fundraising for Saint Michael’s Hospice’s valuable ‘Just B’ bereavement support service.

You can help by bringing along a cake donation or perhaps contributing to her cause:  Claire’s Fundraising Page

Time trial No.1 – important details

Summer time means… Time trial is back!

The clocks have Sprung forwards, so we’re straight back into our ‘daylight’ activities!

They begin tomorrow evening (Tuesday 2nd April) with the first of our 5K Time Trials, which takes place in and around the Aspin estate. All Striders are welcome to enter and you will receive an official time which you compare yourself against at later time trials this year.

We do need to start promptly at 7.30pm though, so please start arriving at the Cricket Club from 7pm ready to register before moving to the startline just down Aspin Lane.

We had a record 57 runners at our first time trial last year, so let’s see if we can beat that!

Course:

For those not familiar with the course, it takes two very similar anti-clockwise laps around Aspin Estate.

The first longer lap heads along the back of the Cricket club for an extra loop around the playpark before heading back onto Aspin Lane.  The route is then: Rievaulx Avenue – Grimbald Road – Cemetery Path – King James Road before heading back past the Cricket club for a second shorter lap.

Training with Emma – this Thursday

This Thursday (28th March) is our monthly session with our visiting coach Emma Kicks. Meet 7.30pm at the Cricket Club. The session will be on tarmac.


Emma is an experienced coach with a wide variety of skills and knowledge, whose sessions will make you fitter for running, providing an insight into how to progress.  We recommend that anyone interested in developing as a runner give the sessions a try – you won’t not be disappointed! She will be coaching at Striders on the 4th Thursday of each month.

You can find out more about Emma here: Ridgeway Fitness and Health

Time Trial 2nd April – help needed!

A reminder that our first 5k Time Trial takes place next Tuesday evening (2nd April) around the Aspin estate. It’s a chance to try something a bit different on a Tuesday, allowing Striders to test themselves on familiar ground and measure their progress across the series of three TTs.

We still need some more marshalls/helpers to run the event safely though. If you’re available, please reply let Steve Morris or any member of the committee know as soon as possible. Thanks!



Bed Race Draw!

We’re delighted that both our entries made it through the draw so we will have two official Knaresborough Strider teams in the 2019 Great Knaresborough Bed Race on 8th June!

If you haven’t already registered your interest in taking part (running or helping), please contact James Wright.



Teams for PECO relays, 31st March

We’re looking for teams of 3 runners to take part in the PECO relays which take place on Sunday 31st March at the John Charles Centre in Leeds.

This is the traditional season-closer which pits representative PECO teams against teams from the West Yorkshire league and also includes the representative teams chosen by each of the participating clubs. In addition, teams are free to enter as many other teams as they wish. Each team member runs a 3mile leg on the XC course.

PECO XC Relays, 2018

PECO XC Relays, 2018

If you and two fellow striders would like to get together as a team, please let Sima (our new Race Secretary) know. If you would like to take part but don’t have a team, then we may be able to group you together into one.

Issy Rowe has been selected to represent PECO and our ‘Representative Club team’ will comprise Sima Lowery, Steve Morland and Ted Welton as the highest-finishing Striders in this year’s PECO championship.
