hivizClub headquarters and training will move to Holt Park Active 16th September  (excluding junior training with will continue to be from AWMA until the end of September).

We are keen to make our presence known and would ask that everyone that owns Abbey Runners tops/vests or Eccup 10 vests please wear them tomorrow so that we start with an ABBEY SPLASH!

We suggest that if you can, you aim to be at the club (Holt Park Active) for 7:15 so you can be shown around briefly ahead of the usual 7:30 start.

Crisp night will also be held 16th September to celebrate the move!  We can meet in our designated meeting room at Holt Park Active after running, showering and changing, then all go over together to the High Farm pub for crisps, nuts, a drink and the runner of the month award for August.

Don’t forget your hi viz clothing as it is dark new from around 7:30

route 66A couple of starter routes for Tuesday’s first run from Holt Park Active. Both have short off road sections near the beginning, but if it is too dark, then the off-road sections can be missed out.

Route 1 ( does a circuit of Cookridge having set off via Paul’s Pond.

Route 2 ( heads through Cookridge and Horsforth and returns via Ireland Wood.

Neither route needs to be followed religiously; they are intended as an introduction to some of the possible routes in the area for those that don’t know the best way to head out of Holt Park Active.
