Steady pacers, and supporting our local running club events
A couple of months ago Rosalyn Moore mentioned the ‘Burn Valley Half’ to me, a race I’d not heard of but immediately thought was right up my street, and so it was on sunday that I headed to Masham to take part. Aside from the fact that its a cracking run and I’d highly recommend it, I was able to reflect how many of the participants from the array of running clubs present were regular parkrunners and this is fantastic. Our congratulations to all who took part - and particularly to Lee Dalton, Mike Appleton and Chris Miller who took the first three places.
Which brings me to the main point - a number of our local running clubs and communities have asked if we can give an extra mention to their forthcoming flagship events. So in order of date, if you fancy trying something a little different one weekend, and need something definite in the diary to train towards, get your name down for one or more of the following:
Harrogate 10k - 22nd July, www.harrogate-harriers.co.uk
Jane Tomlinson York 10k - 5 Aug;, www.forallevents.co.uk/run-for-all/events/10k/york-10k/
Hyde Park Summer Mile - 15 Aug, http://hydeparkharriers.co.uk
Wetherby 10k - 9 September, www.wetherbyrunnersac.co.uk
Guy Fawkes 10 - 4 November, www.niddvalleyroadrunners.co.uk
Finally, this week we are going to make a brief appeal for pacers willing to offer help right across the running spectrum. I couldn’t help but notice an audible gasp last saturday when we announced a 21 minute pacer, so please if anyone can help out any week pacing at 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38 minute type of times this would be very very much appreciated by a significant number of our parkrunners.
Thats it for now. Have a great week. See you saturday.
