• MK Marathon Ambassador 2018 (Part Two)

    Almost two months ago I told you all about my grand plans – ambitious, but grand – for the MK Marathon.  I’m an Ambassador this year. An event I love. I had to get stuck in. At that time it was just under 11 weeks to go.  We’re now at under three weeks to go […]

    Plogging! by James Smith

    PLOGGING – THE LATEST CRAZE THAT’S SWEEPING THE NATION (DO YOU SEE WHAT I DID THERE!) If you’re anything like me (and why the hell wouldn’t you be?) I’m sure that you like to keep up with all the latest fads – so, after a hard day’s loom-band bracelet making (stopping occasionally only to feed […]

  • Race Report – Wootton XC – by Captain Dan

    The rain had subsided on a cold but sunny Sunday morning at Delapre Abbey where the scene was set for two minutes silence to ponder on those who had given so much for their country. Let’s go back 30 minutes to Northampton High School and to the point where the sports hall had emptied out […]

  • Snowdonia Marathon by Jen Garner
