Peco Cross Country Dates

(Posted 26 Sep)

The first event of the 2016/17 season is on 27 November at Temple Newsam. This does however clash with the Barnsley 10k - a Grand Prix event. There is nothing we can do about this so its down to individual choice. Other dates are 18 December, 22 January, 19 February and 5th March.

Changes to Training Nights

(Posted 27 Sep)

The growth of the club has been nothing short of fantastic this year with 57 joining since 1 January bringing out total to 222 paid up members. The Committee have looked at ways of improving the how we can best cater for the wide range of abilities attending our mid-week training sessions to help everyone meet their personal goals.

Commencing Tuesday 4 October we will trial holding a single training session starting at 6:30pm. Those attending will be split into groups based on 5k/10k race pace (actual or estimated) with each led by a volunteer ‘run leader’. We will have a specific beginner group for those with little or no running experience.

A program of routes and distances for each group will be published in advance together with the type and purpose of the run.  The onset of the dark evenings means we have a more limited range of routes where we can run under street lights (remember to wear high viz clothing or accessories).  We are also looking at having some of the runs timed as part of a winter event series – which can be used to record personal progress as well as perhaps being competitive! ‘Standard’ run routes will be made available through links on the web site.  

On Thursdays we will still hold the two sessions – at 6:15 and 7:00pm. Both will focus on coaching, hill / speed work and advice / mentoring. The earlier session is aimed at beginner / improver level, the later for the more experienced runners – however you are welcome to attend either one of both. It is probable that some members may wish to simply ‘go for a run’ instead  - to be organised by those in attendance on the night.

Saturdays sees 60-80 members regularly attending local parkruns. Many turn out for a training/social run rather than striving for a pb each week. If you aren’t looking to pb , why not consider volunteering to pace other members or accompany beginners/improvers. This is not meant to usurp official parkrun pacing events and would be on an informal basis between club members. It’s a great way of getting to know other members better and help ease newcomers into the ‘fold’. Any views?

Series race dates have now been confirmed. The first is on 27th November which unfortunately coincides with the Barnsley 10k - a GP event. Nothing we can do - down to individual choice. Other dates are 18 December, 22 January, 19 February and 5th March.

Tissington: 9 Oct:
