Good Morning All,

It’s great to see so many keen athletes coming on a Friday night. I hope all the juniors are enjoying the training.

I have some updates for you all:

1) Unfortunately there will be no junior training next week (8th October) as a number of us at the club are racing in the Lake District at the Coniston 14 race. We will be back on Friday 15th, and hopefully get just enough light to complete the training session.

2) NYSD x country – For those racing tomorrow at the NYSD x-country at Acklam (Acorn Centre) I have attached race information. The first race is the U11 at 11am. I will be at our tent from 10:30 to sort out numbers and vests. I will also bring along our club selection of spikes. If you are unsure of age group I have attached a section of the rules.

3) OCTOBERFEST – If any juniors not racing at the NYSD fancy a run, then the Octoberfest races are on at Caedmon 6th form tomorrow afternoon (Sun 3rd) from 2pm. They are great fun races organised by Whitby Rotary and Caedmon College and get a good turn out. I have attached all the information in the 3 links at the end of this message

4) Dark Nights – With winter approaching we will be moving to a new venue on Friday 22nd October. This is currently Royal Crescent in Whitby, but I am also discussing use of a sports hall. I have additional volunteers from the club lined up to assist as safety is paramount. I’ll update you all on this in the next couple of weeks.

Finally, you may be aware our coach and running club stalwart Tony Hare sadly passed away last week. I’m aware some of your children were coached by Tony before he retired from junior training just last year. His dedication and commitment to the club over the years has been an inspiration to many of us and we will miss him greatly. I’ll be saying a few words at his funeral on Monday 11th so if you have any memories of Tony it would be great to include them.

I hope you all have a good weekend, and if you have any queries please e-mail me or call on 07816 515560.
