Competitions/Races

As we build up a junior membership we will be looking at entering some races. Having a race or a series of races to look forward to gives a focus in training and provides an opportunity to run against juniors from other clubs of similar ages and ability.

As a primary focus there is parkrun which, is a series of 5k runs held on Saturday mornings in areas of open space around the UK. They are open to all and free and easy to take part in. The local parkrun is at Aireville Park, Skipton. The run starts at 9am. Check out their website for further information www.parkrun.org.uk.
