Sunday January 12th is the date booked for the annual fancy dress run.The clubhouse will be open from 10:00, with the aim of setting out for a run round the Easby Loop (ice permitting) at 10:30.

Rather than the usual bring and share, soup and rolls will be provided, and the bar will be open. If you want to bring any goodies left over from Christmas to get rid of them, feel free!

Please let Geoff Kensett know if you are coming so that he can make sure we have enough soup.

Harrogate District Summer Race League

The start of the mid-week league is now just four weeks away, starting with the race at Ilkley on Tuesday May 8th. You can get your number from Jackie Keavney, if you haven't already done so. It would be great to see as many people as possible taking part, whether you can do just one race or the whole series. Last year there were age-category wins for Steve Brown, Jackie Keavney and Ronnie Cassar, the Supervets finished 2nd overall and the series finished with a decisive win for Nicky Logan in the handicap race. Let's see what we can do in 2014.


Reeth Trail 20K

Reeth-20K-Trail-RaceNew trail running event in Swaledale. A challenging 20k circular route, heading up the River Swale before climbing Harkerside and entering the hidden dale of Apedale (at around 5miles). After a fast descent another climb takes competitors over the Height of Greets before returning to Reeth on mixed terrain. Swaledale Outdoor Shop will be hosting and providing race HQ. Anyone who runs with Swaledale Outdoors shop will know it's a superb challenging route with stunning views throughout. Route is entirely on Public Rights of Way and will be fully flagged.

Ice creams on the Village Green or a refreshing drink in one of the three pubs not included but highly recommended!

Members' forum

More than half the club members have asked me for access to the forum, but this leaves quite a few people who have never seen it. You don't necessarily have to post any messages yourself, but there is often  extra information on there which you won't find on the main site. Among other things there is currently information about training sessions, races coming soon and some London Marathon news. Don't miss out: e-mail Liz if you are a paid-up member and want a password.

Structured training

Here is Jess's latest training schedule, designed to prepare runners for a January half-marathon. If you haven't tried any of these structured sessions yet it is well worth giving them a try, whether it is for race preparation or just to improve your speed and fitness.
