Little change in the Senior Mens Championship since Burton Leonard, but plenty to race for with just Wetherby, Whixley and Guy Fawkes to run. Same applies in the Veteran Ladies where it could be a tight call for the winner. The Veteran Mens title was decided with Ian’s win at Burnsall and the Senior Ladies title was won quite early season by Claire.
RESULTS HERELADY VETS CC 2018
Roll on Wetherby
These two races were only lightly supported, new member Ed Hollinshead was the only Senior runner, at the Ryedale Half.
However the main protaganists in the Male and Female Vets did take points. Ian secured the Title in the Male Vets overall after being pushed by the ever improving Stephen. In the Lady Vets battle Catherine and Nicola have taken over at the top from Dawn and Jo. With 3 races to run its going to be an interesting finale in this Category.

Thinking of popping along to our Monthly Social parkrun visit next weekend? You might also want to ‘Go Ape’ whilst you’re there….
September’s Monthly parkrun venue is DALBY FOREST. The event takes place at Dalby Forest Courtyard, Low Dalby, Pickering, YO18 7LT on Saturday 1st September. A few of our regular ‘tourists’ are also planning to stay around and monkey around at the ‘Go Ape’ high ropes activities as well. You might fancy doing likewise! See Go Ape Dalby for more details.
This month’s venue is a bit further afield than previous, so those wishing to car-share should arrange to meet at the Cricket Club at 7.00am. A few of our regulars are planning to stay nearby the parkrun, so it’s worth asking around to check who is/isn’t travelling in advance.
Dalby Forest parkrun is a multi-user trail predominately forest roads, footpaths and gravel trails for all standards of runner. The trail takes in views along the valley and crosses over bridges that span Dalby Beck as well as winding through forest and pasture. The course is largely flat with a couple of short elevations.
Toilets are located in the Dalby Forest Courtyard as well as the main Visitor Centre. There are disabled facilities in both locations.
There is plenty of car parking located between the Dalby Forest Courtyard and the Visitor Centre. There are a number of disabled parking bays near both the Visitor Centre and Courtyard.
There is a discounted toll charge of £2 per vehicle for all parkrunners to use the forest drive by car until 10.30am. If you wish to extend your visit beyond 10.30am you can top up your admission at the Information Point in Dalby Forest For walkers, runners and cyclists there is no toll charge to enter the forest.
A large children’s play area is located at the back of the main Visitor Centre approximately 5 minutes from the start line.
There are two cafes in walking distance from the start line. The Courtyard Café is closest. The second café is located inside the main Visitor Centre.
Our fellow Strider Kez Welsby and Debbie Handslip (NVRR) are both running the Great North Run this year and raising monies for the Wansbeck Valley Food Bank Charity which is run by the parents of Sam Fugill (NVRR).
In order to help raise funds, Lee Welsby will be running Axe Throwing sessions in the grounds of Ripley Castle on Sunday 2nd September. They are open to anyone from the age of 12 but spaces are limited per session sorry. It may sound a strange sport to try but its great fun, very therapeutic (feel free to bring picture of your boss to pin on the board) and gets very competitive.
A big thanks to Jez for leading a mixed groups around the Crag Rat Course last night. It really is a cracking route with a bit of everything!

In response to many requests, Mark S and Edna will be leading a group of runners for a Social Run through the Nidd Gorge Woods on Saturday 25th August at 6pm.
This is open to all abilities. For those who are new to trail running, or don’t have much experience, it should be dry enough that decent road shoes with good grips will suffice, but if you are not used to running off road and own some trail shoes it is recommend that you wear them, as some sections can be slippy, especially after rain. Mark has measured the route at just under 4 miles. You will need to take care as conditions can be tricky underfoot and you’ll be running at your own risk.
If you haven’t already ventured into the Gorge, this is a chance not to be missed and we guarantee that you will return!
