VS Thursday Run On Tour! 17 May

Now that that summer is almost upon us, the VS Thursday Run group are planning a bit of tourism. Our first outing will be next Thursday (17th May) and we’ll be meeting at Leo’s at 6:45 p.m. (for a 7:00 p.m. depart) to tackle the Meanwood Valley Trail Race route. We’ll be heading off at 8:30 min/mile pace (with stops every mile or so). However, if there’s lots of interest there may be an option to split into a couple of groups, running at a different pace. Please register your interest on the Facebook event.

Middleton parkrun Saturday 19 May

A new category was added to the V S Grand Prix this year; 4 parkruns have been included.  The "spring" parkrun will be at Middleton Park on Saturday 19th May.

Remember that parkruns are for fun but, for the V S Grand Prix, points mean prizes!

RESULTS

Peco Relays - Juniors

The 10 and two-thirds V S junior teams won 2 and two thirds prizes.

One of our runners was unable to run and there was a girl from York who'd turned up on her own hoping to find 2 other runners to make up a team, so she joined V S for the day.  It wasn't till afterwards that we found out that she had won the overall 1st prize in the Peco League for girls in school years 5-6.
