A reminder of other forthcoming events in the near future:
Structured training - Suspended for the summer so we can get our off road shoes on and go running across the fields! We will reintroduce the sessions once the nights get darker and there is more interest in them.

Tuesday 27th September – Runner of the Year Track race 2, The Otley AC Dream Mile, venue & start time as per the 3000m
Autumn Fell Relays: a team will be entered for the Hodgson Brothers & hopefully the British Fell relay dependent on interest. Please email Andrew if you’d like to take part in either/both of these brilliant events, check out the links for more info.
Sunday 2nd October - Hodgson Brothers Mountain Relay, Lake District, Patterdale 4 paired legs.
Saturday 15th October – British Fell Relay, (new link to full race details), organised by Westerlands Cross Country Club Glasgow, venue Luss, Loch Lomond. 6 person, 2 solo, 2 paired legs. Sure to be a great weekend away if we can get 6 folk..
‘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?!
