Following the introduction of limits on numbers entering SY Road League races, the Penistone 5 mile race has had to be taken out of the club championship. It has been replaced with Spencers Dash on May 4th.
There is a new addition to our calendar this year – THE CLUB MILE. Four and a bit laps of the running track at Dorothy Hyman sports stadium in Cudworth. The club has exclusive use of the track on Wednesday 20th April from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. There will be junior races (600m and 800m according to age) and adult mile heats. The mile has also been re-introduced into the club records, so lots of targets for members of all ages. A schedule of the nights races will be issued shortly.
Barnsley Harriers 25th Anniversary Race – 27th February, 9am onwards.
3 laps of an off-road 8.33km course for solo runners or teams of 3.
Lesley Latchem is putting teams together – if anyone who hasn’t already let Lesley know would like to take part, please let her know by Friday January 15th.

Final standings are now on the championship results page.
The club has a new starters/improvers group, which will be a regular part of the Club’s training nights, meeting at 6.30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The aim is to help new or existing members improve so that they feel confident to move up to other groups within the training regime. A rota has been drawn up of members who have volunteered to take turns leading the group: any member who wants to help can contact Annie Lightowler to offer their services.
As runners we all spend time out training, buying the latest kit and entering races. But the one thing most of us forget, can’t be bothered to do or just don’t know how to do, is a post run stretch. In an attempt to keep injury free we really should not ignore this part of our training routine.
This link shows a number of key stretches that all runners should do post run. They shouldn’t take more than 5-10 mins and your muscles will appreciate them.
