Club Captain’s Report March 2022

With all membership renewals now in, we are happy to see a healthy start to 2022 of 43 members this year. These last couple of years have been a challenge for the club but we feel positive that things have taken a turn and we are getting back on track.
Tuesday club nights have been very well supported since the beginning of the year and Thursday night numbers are picking up again. The introduction of the winter training schedule has been well received and shortly we will be putting a new spring training schedule with more routes on offer for when the lighter nights arrive.
It was great to see club members out in racing vests again in events such as the Cross Border 10K, Carlisle Resolution, River Run, DRC Cross Country event, Wamphray Glen and our own Parkrun Captain’s Challenge!
There are a lot more events being staged near and far, and we look forward to seeing what club members are up to in the near future. Remember, if you have an event coming up and you want to share it with members, create an event in the Facebook group and invite people along.
On Saturday 19 th March, we have our social run out at Glenkiln. It would be great to see a good turn out of members on what would normally be our Glenkiln race weekend. This route is undulating and tough in places, but what the course takes from your legs, it gives back in the beautiful scenery from the top of the glen.
Now restrictions are easing, we will look to organise more social events both running and non-running related.
We look forward to seeing what the rest of the year brings!
Nicky and Dougie
