Junior Section to Launch Next April!
The Travellers plan to launch a junior section for young
people aged 8 to 16 years, starting in April next year. Current plans are
that the Junior Section would meet on Wednesday evenings using indoor and
outdoor facilities at Shelley High School.
Plans to launch a Junior Section follow a unanimous decision
at an Extraordinary General Meeting of the Club in July. A core group of Club members, led by Jo Worboys-Hodgson are now driving
forward the Junior Section initiative with Club coaches and coaching assistants
now developing their skills.
West Yorkshire Sports and Kirklees Council are supporting
the junior section initiative and local clubs are also lending a hand with help
and advice. Further information about the Junior Section sessions will be available early in the New Year.
Thursday Evening Club Sessions
evening sessions focus on building speed and stamina working as a group, so that runners of all
ability are very much welcome
These sessions are great for improving general fitness and
preparing for autumn races. Why not come along and give one a try! Every Thursday, 7pm from the Pie Hall.
Over the past few weeks these sessions have proved very
popular led by Claire Wilkinson. If you would like to get involved and help organize a session, please contact Claire.

Please note that the race is now full as the race limit of 200 runners has been reached. Any further entries will therefore go onto a reserve list and entrants notified if a place in the race becomes available.
A provisional entry list is available on the 'Club Events' page. A final entry list will be posted on Wednesday 28 January, taking account of any drop-outs and inclusion of reserves. A map of the course and information for runners are also available on the Club Events page.
With the possibility of wintry weather towards race-day we will do our best to let everyone know if any problems are anticipated, so watch this space for further news.
