WHAT AN EVENTFUL few months it’s been! The two races we organised, the YVAA Road Relays and the Ben’s Wish To Walk 5 Mile race, were both up to the very high standard that people have come to expect from Ilkley Harriers events. Thank you to Peter Shields and Neil Chapman, the race organisers, and to the many, many people who helped these events run so well.

Winter action Everyone has launched themselves into winter racing, with the West Yorkshire Cross Country season in full swing and PECO started too. I’m sure Malcolm and Diane would like to see a few more people make it to the Yorkshire and Northern Championships at the end of the season, so check out those dates. The fell season ended very succesfully with Ilkley Harriers collecting English Champions’ trophies – well done Norman and Tracey, and all the others who finished with Championship placings. The Winter social programme has started succesfully, with the dreary evenings brightened by Gatherings, Fancy Dress Relays, Predictor Runs, quizzes, and more.

Lend a hand

Relays have been something of a hot topic lately, with the Committee working on the issues raised at the AGM and elsewhere. Relays are important and worth promoting in the Club, but we will need more people to lend a hand coordinating entries and leading teams. We are growing as a Club, both in numbers and in the things we do for our members, so it’s natural that we will need more people ‘on board’ to help coordinate and lead things. With no more races to organise until February you might have expected some respite from me banging the volunteer drum, but I’d like everyone to think about how they can do something
