Race Report 13/10/20

At this time of year, the Club would normally be having two hard sessions a week in Thirsk School gym or sports hall, but sadly these days, such things are not possible and outside sessions have to suffice.  This is fine on a dry evening, but less attractive if it’s cold and wet!  Nevertheless, members get together in a socially distanced way within the rules at Sowerby Gateway, where there is masses of room for core exercises, (if you can face the wet grass,) and running on the superb, illuminated, track with a head torch, and a hard session is possible.  Longer distances are run at other times, with people training for, say, a virtual York Marathon or even just a 10k run.  Park runs are badly missed, and though there was a possibility some might start up again by the end of this month, that now seems to have been ruled out. 
 
The club’s Virtual Championship has been a huge success with a massive take up of members, many more so than would have entered the equivalent local race which would require paid pre entry several weeks in advance.  With the virtual runs, you simply turn up and do it, record your own time and send it in.  What could be easier?
 
Visitor of all ages over 11 and abilities are welcome to come and give us a try.  Just turn up on a Wed or Mon at 7 pm at Sowerby Gateway and make yourself known.  Details of all activities can, of course, be found on the club website.

Hello club members and friends of the Thirsk 10 road race. We would just like to provide a brief update to inform everybody that for obvious reasons the Thirsk 10 race will not be held in March 2021 however, we intend to reassess the situation in the Spring with a view to holding the event later in the year subject to national and local restrictions in place at the time. We apologise for the disappointment this will undoubtably cause, however I am sure that everybody appreciates that the Covid 19 Pandemic is a fluid situation with rules and restrictions seemingly changing on a daily basis. We will provide a further update in once we have been able to consider matters. Assuring you of our best intentions at all times, keep running and stay safe. The Thirsk 10 Team.
