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!

UPDATE: Cancelled – Saucony try-on this Tuesday!

Due to circumstances beyond our control, tonight’s Saucony try-on is cancelled. Structured training will still take place at the Cricket club – please wear suitable shoes.

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

Meet from 7pm at the Cricket Club.




There is further information from the Peco Cross Country Organiser. It reiterates the Opening date of 15/10/10 for those paying for all races initially, “including Juniors” and for those who want to pay singly for the 1st race. It also states there will be a link on to the Racebest website for entry. Newest information however is the number of “counters” in ALL Categories and it reflects the increase in Lady runners last season. All other information pertaining to the series can be found on the link above or you could read the 2 previous News items dated 15/9 and 21/9 on our website Re PECO and other Cross country events. Should you have further queries I am at club on Tuesdays for the asking of. Eric
