Absolute Beginners Group
Start Your running and fitness NOW
Are You considering taking up running? For many the hardest part is often getting started. This is why we have a group aimed at the complete beginner, those relatively new to running, and those returning after an injury. It's not all about running as many adjourn afterwards to the park café for coffee and cake, a vital part of a runner's recovery and to socialise.
One event to go and after our recent outing to Temple Newsam, Baildon are in their strongest position ever. Out of eleven clubs taking part Baildon currently are in second position overall made up by men in third place, ladies in second place and Vets in second place. Great to see the following runners out on their first Winter League run of the season - Denise Bailey, Marc Forrest, Sally Gavaghan,Jenni Guard, Dave Lonsdale Jackie Walters and Susanna Walters
Final event -Pudsey 28th February.
Full details will be emailed to members during the week prior to the event.

Sue Coates presenting Alan Clements with the Turpin Trophy. The Dave Turpin Trophy is awarded annually at the christmas party to a Club Member who has made a massive contribution to the club over the years (not just the last 12 months) in memory of one of our past members. Often this has been given for organising teams, administering club events like the Boundary Way race or social do's, running the newsletter, increasing the profile of the club and too many other examples to mention. The trophy may only be awarded once to any recipient.
Alan wasn't available to attend the party so the presentation this year was made prior to a regular Thursday session.
