Most of the races in the second half of the 2021 Club Championship are open and taking entries. You need to look on the club website to see which they are and get them entered. There may only be three virtual races left. However, nothing has been predictable this past year so let’s see what happens.
The next championship race is the virtual HDSRL fixture in Kilburn Woods, 10 to 13th June. See separate email to follow for details.

And a reminder form Marian to get signed up for Sessay – entries are open. No entries on the day.

And a few further thoughts from Rob:
I am not planning on anything happening beyond the next virtual HDSRL fixture in Kilburn Woods, 10 to 13th June. 
This is a perfect out and back course where you have a chance to see and maybe meet other runners. The forest road is a little uneven but it’s firm and good enough for road shoes. Once you start on the final climb before the turnaround you have 1000 metres to go so don’t start off too hard. Try for a pace that you feel you can maintain. You will not see the gate at the turning point until you are within 50 metres or so of the turn. You have been warned. Having said all that, it is about one of the fastest returns to the finish you are ever likely to get so save some of your strength for the finish.
I hope you’ll enjoy this one because it’s one of my favourite places to train and it’s on my doorstep. I used to run in here before anyone else used to run and I could go weeks and not see another person.  Now it’s difficult to not see other people. Sadly, there are now less than half the animals and birds there used to be forty years ago. One day I hope it returns to how it used to be. 

Have a good weekend, Rob
