A shorter route of 8 KM will be used missing out Myton-on-Swale.
Additionally, a 6 KM route is available.

Week 14 (25th August) - Away evening at Tholthorpe. A chance for the 10 K hopefuls to run the course with a shorter alterative for those not wanting to run the complete route until the day. For those not running the Tholthorpe 10 K a shorter route will be available to ensure everybody has a run. Meet Tholthorpe Green 7 pm - drinks after in the local hostelry.


Week 15 (1 September)- A steady social run for all.  After, we will all gather back in the Galtres to celebrate completing the course. A few nibbles will be available and most importantly the Bar will be open!! 
Sunday 5th September, Tholthorpe 10 K - for those taking part, enter under Easingwold Running Club and pay the lower fee for affiliated club members (£7). There will be a team photo 10 minutes before the start so don't get caught in the loo queue! We will all meet on the Green after the run.
Post Beginners Course - For some completing the course will be success enough. For other, continuing social running with friends old and new will be the choice. For those that would like a regular training night as well, membership to Easingwold Running Club for the period September to March (6 months) is available. Cost will be £10 payable to the Secretary, Roger Nicholls. See, Ken Roger or Peter on Wednesday training nights.

There was some doubt within the club on the need for a beginners group this year, having run a course for the previous two years. The turnout to the
registration evening rather showed we had misjudged the demand for another course, when a record 57 potential beginners came to the briefing.  After talks from various club members about types of training, safety and insurance to suitable running gear, 50 signed up on the night. The following week, the first activity session, numbers had swelled to 70 and applications have had to be closed. This number is nearly double those of the previous two courses and bodes well to the continued success of running in the Easingwold area.

Weeks 1 to 6

The work begins on week 1 with three groups being formed under the leadership

of Roger (walkers/jogger) Ken (joggers/runners) and Peter (runners) assisted by other coaches and a large number of club helpers, many who have completed the course in the preceding two years. The group joined together on week 4 to train on Millfield Park using the field and adjoining wood. Excellent progress has been made over the six weeks preparing the group for the challenge in week 7. 

Week 7 (7 July)

The opportunity for individuals to measure their progress with three runs of 5K, 3K and 1.5 K.  
Well done to the 31 who completed the 5 K and the 9 who completed the 1.5 K.
Thanks to Frank for opening the bar, Richard for setting up the 5 K course, Roger for timekeeping, Dan and Linda for marshalling and all the club helpers who ran the two courses.  
 A Map of the 5 K route is available at the bottom of the page under attachments.
