    MK MARATHON AMBASSADOR 2019 – WOO HOO! by James Smith

      Although I was a truly awful runner as a young man (I failed the RAF fitness test quite spectacularly on the first attempt – only just scraping through on the second attempt after being chased by a Brummie with fists like hams threatening to “punch yow head in if

    Man cannot run on cake alone……he also needs Gin!

    A week in the life of.....Captain Dan... Thursday I was moping around the house, so Vicky suggested I go for a run, then it started raining! Another hour passed and I made it to the bedroom to change! Eventually I brought enough enthusiasm to the party to get out the

    Team Parkrun day

    Team parkrun dropped in this weekend and LFR were in huge numbers to assist. This is where a national lottery funded athlete visits parkrun to give something back to the community, encourages, answers questions and tail runs. We were luck enough to have Zoe Shipperley, a silver medalist for England

    Rushmere with a buggy!

    You may think I’m a little mad but since Vicky bought us a running buggy for Christmas, to enable us to go out running with Edison, I’ve been taking on new challenges including Rushmere Parkrun. Today was supposed to be a gentle stretch before Bearbrook 10k but with Arriana away

    Beds AAA 10k

    A gaggle of LFR’s hit Bedford by storm on Friday night just before the first rain storm of summer! It was the county 10k championship. Great fun was had by all, with a handful of hugely awesome pb’s, Chris, Will, Matt and myself. It was great to see that LBAC

    Drunk in 8 minutes aka the beer mile

    Yes it’s that time of year again when the local Coop sells out of 4 packs of 5% cans. So for those who have never done it – oh buy 4 cans of 330ml alcoholic beverages. Down one then run 400m, repeat 4 times without being sick (or you get

  • Silverstone 10K by Kevin Hare

    As a fan of motor racing, when Silverstone 10K got advertised it was a run which I definitely wanted to participate in.  To run round the home of British Motor Racing…you don’t get many chances to do that.  On the day it was exciting as you drive through the gates

  • 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

    Multisport For Running Longevity

    What do people like about running? Being outside. With your friends. Having a natter. Feeling the endorphins kick in. Exploring somewhere stunning. The satisfaction of knowing you've pushed yourself a bit perhaps? Whatever the reason it sucks when you can't do that. Running is great as long as we can
