Please note that for a short while during the “summer” the usual Thursday night interval session is being suspended.

The club will still meet on a Thursday (if you want) but we will probably just go for a bit of a run rather than structured training.

The intervals that you all know and love will return on Thursday 1st August.

Firewalk update!

A huge thanks to everyone who sponsored me for the Leuchie House Firewalk, which I completed on Friday 7th June.  Much to everyone's surprise who I've spoken to so far, I didn't do any damage to my feet and didn't actually really feel the ashes as hot.  I've attached a couple of photos of them lighting the walk - I think they only showed us this to scare us out of our wits!!  By the time we did the walk, it had all died down to a much more reasonable level of ash with just a few little flames at the sides...I've attached a video of the firewalk itself too.  

I've managed to raise £460 so far, which is fabulous and for a really great cause.  I've still not quite made my target so any last minute support would be greatly appreciated!!


Alnwick warmup at Yellowcraigs

Just to remind folks again , there is a local orienteering event this Saturday 22nd June. 

Yellowcraigs should be a great location for this type of running event. All ages can participate , just turn up anytime between 12 and 2pm to try a course (or  two). Advice for beginners is available too and further info can be found at : 

Why not give it a shot, there's a BBQ after the 
run also.

Please note that the bus has been booked for Sunday the 23rd for the Alnwick Race.

Please remember that if you are going but have not yet entered any of the three races there is limited time left to do so.

The bus will leave Hallhill at 08:00 at the car park side (I know its early – but the race starts at 10:30 and we want to get there with time for a warm up etc.)

A table has been booked for the Red Lion in Alnmouth at 03:00 for a meal after the race. A sample menu is here:

There are still some places left on the bus so let Stuart know ASAP if you want to come along.

Another unashamed request for sponsorship - Firewalk coming soon....

It's not long now until my Firewalk in support of Leuchie House - this Friday night I'm walking 20 feet over embers burning at 1200 degrees Fahrenheit!!  I'm starting to get a wee bit nervous, but its all for a very good cause.

For those of you that don't know, Leuchie House offers respite short breaks to enhance the lives of people (and their families) living with Multiple Sclerosis, Huntingdon's, Parkinson's, stroke, spinal injuries and other long term conditions.

Fund raising has been going well - thanks to everyone who has donated so far, it is greatly appreciated.  I'm still a bit short of my target so any further support you can offer would be great!
