This session will be hills on Road. Meet at the bottom of Castle Ings Road. Thanks Eric
Here are the routes for our next ‘elastic’ run on Thursday 10th October.
Everyone will be striding out around much of our time-trial course, then taking a Stockwell-Halfpenny-Boroughbridge Road loop and heading back through the town centre via Knaresborough Castle. Along the way, Intermediate and Run groups will make an extra loop around some of the course (using Aspin Park Drive), whilst Jog1 and Run make a small diversion via Greengate lane up to Scriven. Distances are very similar the previous few weeks.
Everything is lit around, but your own lighting will help to see and be seen; levels of visibility around the club have been really great these past few weeks – well done all!
Due to the 414th annual celebration of the demise of goatey-bearded gunpowder failure and sometime local resident, Mr Fawkes, our normal venue will be unavailable due to the planned ignition of fireworks by our cricketing friends.
Therefore, with regret, there will be no regular Striding session on Tuesday 5th Novmber. Feel free to stare upwards and say ‘ooh, ah’ a lot instead, without the guilt of missing Striders.
Rumours abound of members arranging alternative runs away from the fallout of burned tubes and sticks – watch this space.
The quality session tomorrow night will be Hills on Road. Venue Aspin Park Drive.
Tonight (Thursday 3rd Oct) is the latest of our sociable ‘elastic’ runs, with all runners heading in the same direction but with pace and distances adjusted to suit our different requriments.
We will be heading back to the Starbeck loop which Mark planned a month ago, but we will be tackling it in the opposite direction.
We will all head up into Knaresborough, down the high street and then climb up to Starbeck.
- Jog 2 (green) will head down Forest Lane and return to Knaresborough over Forest Moor, Calcutt, Briggate and Windsor Lane.
- Jog 1 (red) will take the longer route via Beryl Burton Way and Bilton Hall Lane (the leader may choose a different loop depending on how well lit our runners are) before heading back via Forest Lane and Forest Moor.
- Intermediates will head through Starbeck, taking Stonefall, Greenfields and Hookstone Chase before picking up Forest Moor
- Run Group will run up the hospital before heading back via Wetherby Road, Hookstone Chase, Forest Moor and the rest.
See you there!
Note that this is the original map and shows the opposite direction!
