Tabular Hills Relay - dummy run 5th April

Hi all,

I know it seems like months away but for those of you who would like to join in the dummy run I will show details of the sectional routes here; I have printed off maps of the routes so you will be able to look at them, perhaps choose one and sort out a partner to run it with.

There are eight sections, ranging from 8.5k to 11.5 k, all of them involve at least one steep climb, they are:-

Scalby Mills to Wrench Green 10k

Wrench Green to Oxmoor Dykes 9k

Oxmoor Dykes to Hole of Horcum 10k

Running tonight Thursday 29th

Hi all,

Apologies as I will not be able to make the run tonight.

Tess, Simon Tyrrell and I are meeting with Martin early this evening to discuss the development of the website.

Nicola and I got up at 3.30 this morning to come home, (after a fairly sleepless night) I don’t think we can run, saving what is left of ourselves for the Princess Challenge on Saturday.

T-shirt update

Hi all,

News about the T-shirt order!

Sorry  it has been so long coming.

The club has been invoiced for the initial order of shirts made by all those who told me they wanted one, stated the  size and also whether initials were required. We are allowed up to three letters, I thought it was only two, so if anyone wants to add an extra one(Simon Tyrrell I recall wanted SIM rather than ST. That now seems doable.)

If you would like to change that please let me know immediately and I’ll try to get it sorted.

Absolute Beginners

 The club organised two very successful beginners courses several years ago, whilst they may not have attracted many new members to the club they did introduce over 150 people to running and we had over 100 people complete a 10 km Road Race as the summit of their course.

Organising the course gave members of the club the opportunity to participate in outreach, learn or develop skills and involve the club in the community which also significantly contributed towards club funds.

Cleveland Way Relay - What next?

Following on from the success, pleasure and cameraderie of the Cleveland Way Relay I have been wondering if there is anything the club can do to further running in North Yorkshire.

The Tabular Hills Walk is a regional long distance path running across most of ‘our patch’. It goes from Scalby Mills to Helmsley, joining up the Southern limbs of the Cleveland Way. It takes in sections of several  of our summer routes.
