Buying something online, check out this easy way of giving the club a bit of extra funds on the Otley AC easyfundraising site here. So far up to 08/01/2017 we’ve managed to raise a fantastic £155.43.

Otley 10 online entry see details on the Otley 10 page.

A reminder of other forthcoming events in the near future:

Harrogate League – Tom Hannah will be down Tuesday & Thursdays for next few weeks handing out Harrogate League numbers. The cost is £5 for five races (Actual cost £10 but club pay £5). Numbers will be issued on receipt of £5 payable to Tom or online (please put your name and HL as ref so Ian can identify the payments). PLEASE NOTE If you register but do not take part in any of the races the club still has to pay for the number. Therefore you may be asked to pay the full £10 if you have registered but do not take part.

Structured training - Hills and Speed sessions return each Thursday from the 6th October, and occasionally on a Tuesday a hills session.

‘Moonlighting’ is back; the alternative to pounding the Tarmac during the dark nights.

For the uninitiated, this involves off-road running. Everyone is welcome, but appropriate running gear is necessary ie, trail/fell shoes, windproof, head torch.

Ideas for routes are always welcome and if anyone wants more info on particular runs ask Head Moonlighter, Liz Fawcett, at training and she’ll bring a map with her next time.

Of course, this is not without danger (the run, not Liz) and – Disclaimer – by joining this activity, you agree to do so at your own risk!

We usually have two groups to ensure everybody’s pace can be accommodated and is open to everyone in the club however fast or slow. Anyone new to the club is particularly welcome, so why not give it a go?!

See Notices and Forthcoming Events for dates.
