Fell session (from Simon Vallance)

Due to other commitments, neither Ross nor I were able to lead the session on the first Tuesday of the month. Instead, we will be running a session in Gledhow Valley Woods on the third Tuesday of the month.

Expect plenty of hill work and some speed work on the hills and the flat. Precise details to be determined - we will post these on the Fell FB page.

Meet 6.45 at Scott Hall leisure ready for a 7.00 start. Those wanting to meet us there, aim for the lake end of the woods for around 7.15.

Thursday 23 August Training / Meanwood Valley Trail Thursday Recce (from Steph)

All Thursday running groups will set off from Leos on Thursday for a recce of the Meanwood Valley Trail.

Each group will have a leader who will show them the route.

The course is about 7 miles but there are bits that can be missed off at the end for people who want a shorter run.

To ensure everyone gets back at a similar time the groups will set off at different times:
10-11 min mile group - 6:50
9-10 min mile group- 6:55
8-9 min mile group 7:00

If you are helping as a marshal on the event it would be good for you to do a recce so you know the route.

Thanks

Steph
