Subject: V S Reminders - pie & peas and Leaders course, also Orienteering in Roundhay Park on Sunday


There will be a proper V S Update in the next few days, but in the meantime


Reminder 1 – pie and peas Tuesday 28 February


Select meat pie or vegetarian bake, select mushy peas or baked beans, and say whether you want apple pie – to  by Sunday 10pm.  Orders may be accepted up till 12 noon Monday, but please email Saturday or Sunday if you can.


Reminder 2 – Run Leaders course.


In the last few V S updates, I’ve been mentioning Run Leaders courses, either to support the existing V S Run Leeds at Alwoodley Tuesday 6pm group, or a new improvers group starting Tuesday 7pm from April, or to support the club Tuesday/Thursday/Sunday sessions, or to set up new sessions on your own as a source of income.


The course is Saturday 17 March at John Charles Centre for Sport (formerly South Leeds Stadium).  Already 28 of the 36 places have been taken


If you are interested, please contact Holly by this Tuesday at the latest.




Lastly, this message was in the Abbey Runners weekly email – I believe this is an open event


“Airienteers are holding an orienteering event in Roundhay Park on Sun 26th Feb (starting from the car park near the lakeside cafe). There will be courses suitable for all ages (including and especially children) and abilities (most courses won't require the use of a compass). Plus, it's in Roundhay Park, so the chances of getting lost are slim! I challenge you all to come down and have a go at something a bit different - you can run on your own or in a group and it will certainly sharpen up your navigation skills. If you like, think of it as just a run with a map in your hand.

Registration is any time between 10.00 and 12.00, and you will be given a starting time when you register (it'll be between 10.30 and 12.30)

Brief details here - or more detailed stuff including directions here -


NB full body cover is normally required for orienteering events
