• 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 – The Race!

    It’s me again!  Following on from Part Two, the MK Marathon Weekend has been and gone.  What happened to my plans?  Did I follow them?  What did JG do?  Well… At the time of the previous blog, my aim was to run 10 miles that weekend.  When training for a

  • 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

    Tokyo here we go by Pam O’Connell

    For the second year running I didn’t get a place in the Tokyo ballot so that was that…  A very good friend and her daughter booked with Sports Tours but I didn’t really have the funds. Then Max and Becs also booked their places and the temptation became too much

  • My First Half Marathon by Kevin Hare

    I wanted to set myself a challenge to finish 2017, so I booked the MK Winter Half Marathon on 10th December 2017.  It would be the longest distance I would have run.  My training was really over short distances of 6 miles leading up to it and personally I have

    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

    MK Marathon Ambassador 2018 – Jen Garner

    Back in September last year, I found out I was successful in my application to be an Ambassador for the MK Marathon this year.  Woo hoo!   Another marathon, Jen, are you mad? Wasn’t Snowdonia bad enough?  Quite possibly.  And yes. My face is on their website.  Check it out: http://mkmarathon.com/ambassadors/

  • Beds and Bucks AA Cross Country Championship by Captain Dan

    Not another Cross Country Race I hear you ask! Not more mud, hills, wind and rain! Not more cake! Well no, not this time, it was a new adventure for Leighton Fun Runners. As a club we have never signed up to the County Athletics Association until this year.  It

    How do you measure running achievements?

    For me last 6 months of running have been pretty pants and by October I was seriously considering jacking it in. I’d gained weight, my running buddy was AWOL and unlike everyone else I was getting slower not faster. I had signed up to a Half Marathon in the Summer

    New York Marathon by Duncan Watson

    I am pleased to say that I survived the New York Marathon with a time of 4.44.49. It was an amazing experience that will never be forgotten; wondering around the Big Apple the day afterwards with 50,000 others wearing your medal is a fabulous feeling as everyone is saying “Con-grat-u-lations” I
