Why not try the Dyke 10k on Sunday 25th Sept @ 1430 (It'll be a good warm up for Baxters on the following Sunday). Really keen to try and get a good club turnout please.
It's a great road course, well organised by Forres Harriers and food afterwards. For those that don't know, Dyke is signposted to the left, just off the A96 Aberdeen Road and 5 mins passed Nairn so an easy journey. See Forres Harriers for full details. You can either enter online for £7 or on the day £8 and remember to use "Jog Scotland Muir of Ord" for club name as we'll automatically qualify for a team entry - 2 men + 2 ladies count. Hope you can make it.
Week beginning Saturday 10th September
Saturday 10th September: remember the Park runs have now begun in Inverness at the Bught - Google 'Park Runs' to find out how to sign up - several of our group ran the first one last Saturday. It's 5K - you need to register in advance of turning up - but you do this on line and it's instant and free! the Park run takes place every Saturday morning at 9.30 in the Bught Park in Inverness. Suitable for all abilities - it's not a race.
Monday 11th September: evening run : meet at 6.25 at the Bowl football pitch (take the road from Muir of Ord and turn left just before the police station) - there's a car park under the height barrier and the pitch is to the left down the bank.

If you haven't yet recieved a copy of Stride, then maybe you have not signed up for it (£5 per year after the first year of membership I think) - you might however be able to access it on line - worth a try. See page 19!
Wednesday 7th September: afternoon run - meet in the square in MoO at 1.30 or Clash Wood Car park at 1.40. Apologies for this past Wednesday afternoon - for I think the first time ever - there were no jogleaders available to take the group...well done all of you who carried on regardless!

We are looking at holding these evenings every 2nd Monday (until the light evenings start to disappear) for those interested in joining us , but as with everything at Muir J.S. we are interested in your views on whether this is a worthwhile undertaking or not, so please speak to Joan, Mike or Richard, alternatively leave us a commet on our Facebook page.
For those of you not interested in joining in with us for the speed training, come down to the field to join in with the warm up then head of out on your usual run with one of the leaders in attendance, as usual there is no pressure to join the Intervals but it is good to keep up the regular running. Then join us back at the field for a group strech and cool down.
Wanted: Volunteers to help with the Monster Challenge on Saturday 3rd September. You get paid £30 for the day which you can keep or give to a charity of your choice. Help also required on Friday 2nd Sept. from mid-afternoon till about 9 pm.

Charity Ceilidh Strathpeffer Pavilion, Friday 12th August - music by Rythmnreel. Tickets £12 on the night or from Richard Roberts tel. 0751 217 1605.

See www.kidsofkolkata.co.uk for details of the great cause they are raising money for.
Open meeting for group members We think it's time to discuss ways of taking the group forward and we want to hear everyone's views. So if you can come to a meeting, maybe early August we can discuss various ideas eg: should we become a more 'formal' group ie with a proper committee, and funds etc? What about running gear? Some are suggestion that we have a choice of tops with our name on - say t-shirts / polo shirts - hooded tops? More interval training? More frequent sessions? Social events? Whatever! In discussion with a few, it appears that Tuesday or Thursday evenings might suit best. Give me an idea of what evvening would suit you when we next meet up or email me: email@example.com(new email address). I will be able to book either a room in the library building or in the Pavilion (near to the bowling green).

FEW DATES FOR YOUR DIARY
WEDNESDAY 15th JUNE - JOGSCOTLAND 5K, Inverness Bught Park @ 7.00pm
This is the ideal introduction to competing in a mass event, in old money it's only 3 miles which for EVERYONE in Muir of Ord Jogscotland is well achievable, remember you run further than this twice every week, a bonus for this race is that its completely flat and its great FUN. £10 entry can either be done on-line or in the registration area on the night. We have historically had a huge turn-out for this event so come on lets keep up the tradition. Please remember that there will not be an organised run in the village this evening.
SUNDAY 19th JUNE - GLEN MORAY 10K, FORRES
A well organised event which also incorporates a 10 mile race, usually a few hundred take part, registration can be done in advance or on the day at the Forres sports centre, good course of mixed tarain all on roads around Forres ending back at the sports centre, really, really good munch after in the centre. Mike Gage and Richard both won thier age catagories last year so lets repeat this again in every catagory !!!
WEDNESDAY 29th JUNE - TAIN GALA 10K, TAIN 7.00PM
Another evening event which is part of the Tain gala week, has always been a reasonable turn-out of local to Ross-Shire runners, so that includes us ! This course heads out through the town for a mile or so which is only slightly hilly then heads off out and back along a long flat road and ending up back through part of the town to the finish. Hot and cold refreshments and snacks have always been available afterwards before prizegiving. Entry was only £6 last year and can only be done on the night. Great alternative to your weekly muir run.
Well another week aproaches and an important night awaits us !!!!
Yes that's right it's our monthly Interval Training Night, Monday 6th June @ 7.00pm down and around the football pitch, all meet down ther about 6.50pm ready to get going at 7, this will replace our usual run for the night but do come along for a wee look at what its all about and join in for a short run.
