Early April News

I’m going to try to post a news item weekly from now on, so watch this space.  If I lapse, complain about it.  It’s the Calderdale Hike next Saturday, one of the Runfurther classics.  It’s the same route as the past 2 years, so next year the route will change.  For anyone new to this year’s route, watch your navigation from Delf End to Jerusalem Farm towards the end of the Hike, or join up with someone who knows this section – it’s easy to go wrong.  And just put your head down & keep going on that last brutal road climb up to Sowerby – you’re nearly there so the pain  will stop soon.

Prizes provided by Runfurther at Calderdale may be Clif Bars again, or we may have taken delivery of goodies from Injinji, the Ultramarathon Running Store and Ultimate Direction as well by then, so the prizes could be more varied.  In any event, every entrant will get a Clif Bar, as they will at every 2014 race.

We’ll be around at the start with membership forms etc, & we’ll be putting a copy of the leaderboard up somewhere.  All the Runfurther committee will be taking part this year, so faster finishers won’t find any of us at the finish.  Karen or Emma should be first of the committee back.  I’m not allowed to run with a broken leg so I’ll be walking it instead.  There’ll be a Runfurther committee meeting after the race at a pub in Sowerby Bridge – full details on the Meetings page.  All members are welcome at committee meetings.

We’re getting some t-shirts printed for the committee, so everyone will know who we are.  I don’t think we’ll have them in time for Calderdale though, so look out for the fliers & results board if you want to find us – we’ll probably be near them.  See you in Sowerby!
