Entries for the 2013 Otley 10 Mile Road Race are open.
Please go to the dedicated race page.
If there are any issues with logging into the club forum, please email Richard Hamer.
A reminder of other forthcoming events in the near future:
This friendly group is designed for anybody wanting to start running. The emphasis is very much on enjoyment and trying out a new interest. The group is lead by a qualified Leader In Running Fitness and anyone wanting to give jogging and running a go is welcome, including accompanied children over the age of 11.
Each session lasts about about half an hour and there’s plenty of “seasoned” runners on hand to offer advice on anything from trainers to nutrition.
So even if it’s just a tentative desire to exercise and keep fit, come and join us. If you want to know more email firstname.lastname@example.org

‘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?!
