Running Club

February update

Acorns have been seen out early this year, with many members running and helping out at the York Parkrun which has seen a massive growth since Christmas.

The fine weather has meant that the Sunday runs out over the Yorkshire Wolds have been possible and very enjoyable. For those of us who follow the longer races, Richard Gover successfully completed the grueling Spine Challenger (about 108 miles of the Pennine Way) in under 40 hours. The unseasonable warm weather meant that the bogs of black hill, bleaklow, kinder scout were not frozen over and therefore energy sapping.  The overnights were very, very black and cold. Overall he said that it was the hardest thing he had ever done.

Meanwhile winter training has been conducted on Tuesdays and Thursdays meeting at 7pm for 7.15 run off.
Tuesdays have seen us doing steady runs of 5 -7 miles with some groups targeting local strava segments to relieve the monotony of street running.
Thursdays have changed so that some members go for a steady run whilst others are sprint/ rep training ready for 10km York Road Race League which starts on 25 April in Pocklington.

The AGM is on 21 February so there will be none or only a short training run after the AGM.
