Some summer dates for the diary….

We have a number of events coming up at the club over the summer months – get them in your diary now!

21st June – Talk by Ultra Runner Matty Brennan and overview of nutrition brand ‘Mountain Fuel’. This event is to be hosted by our friends at Harrogate Harriers. The event will be held in Harrogate Squash Club (off Plantation Drive) @20:30.

5th July – Our next ‘Predicata Run’ will be held on the first Tuesday of July. Guess your finish time for either the 5 km or 5 mile course – the closest to their predicted time is the winner!

19th July – The next club Time Trial will be followed by our yearly summer BBQ. A small charge (TBA) for the BBQ, including meat, salads and deserts.

2nd August – We will be joined by representatives of Brooks and Tom Tom who will be down at the club to allow our members to try out the latest gear. You will be able to try out a pair of Brooks trainers for the duration of the training sessions that night and track your activity with a trial of the latest Tom Tom watches.

  

Club Championship Review

Its good to see a few more Ladies taking part in the CC. Nicola dominates proceedings with four straight wins carrying on from last season and is followed by the consistent Dawn and Sima who has three good results, can anybody catch them? Well done to Tracey who bagged a win early season. Plenty of races to come Ladies, give it a go!

The mens CC is in essence still wide open with 5 different men having taking 1st place in a race on the age graded system. Last years champion Ian is being challenged by new member Tom and there could be challenges from James and Andy if they steer clear of injury. Stalwart Martin will also be a strong contender, there could be others with a late surge – keep a close eye on Guy. Will we see a late,late charge from Conrad??

Harrogate District Summer Road League – Race 3 – 31/5/16 – Swaledale

A late well done from me to all who competed at Nidd Valley – another good turn out.

The next event is this Tuesday, to be held by Swaledale runners. If you have registered and not run yet this could be a great starter run. Profile shows a long downhill run outwards with just a lump at the end to surmount.

Key for this event – Post Code for venue is DL6 2DW.

Do read Summer Road Lge website for other information. Hope to see you. Thanks Eric

    

Congratulations…..

…..to the 21 Striders who ran the 1st Summer Road League event at Ilkley on Thursday (05/05). Everyone put loads of effort in, had to deal with THAT hill, and the grub was fabulous after.

Next event will be held by local rivals Nidd Valley on 24/5/16. All details on that now available at www.harrogate-league.org.uk.
