    This is the week that was…. The Dirt Half

    parkrun I thought this week's parkrun would be a little quieter due to the Dirt Half, however I was pleasantly surprised to be proved wrong.  An impressive 44 of you took part in parkrun’s at nine venues up and down the land. Carrie Tyas and Paul Doyle were in Whitby,

  • Halloween Run

    This is the week that was…. The Halloween Run

    Friday Fright Night! After weeks of planning, many miles racked up on recce runs, hours of online and actual shopping for props, Friday night came and the Halloween Run was a huge success. I was going to resist “spooktacular” in this week's newsletter, but I’m afraid I can’t! On behalf

    Club Runs Tuesday was PACE NIGHT and everyone was catered for by our brilliant run leaders, and it’s fair to say we had a great turnout again. On hump day Captain Emily led a super six group at Astral park for Meet and Retreat. This is a slightly different version

  • This is the week that was…. The Brighton Marathon

    Club Runs As summer turned to autumn the irony wasn’t lost on many of us that the sun made a welcome return, as did some not so welcome warmth for those racing. As Tuesday was the first one of the month, Cake night returned with the sunshine and 85 of

  • This is the week that was…. The Bedford & MK Running Festivals & a Triathlon!

    Club Runs After Bank Holiday Monday we started the week at Woburn for our last evening trail run of the summer marking the final day of August. 5 groups went out with over 50 of you in attendance enjoying the late summer's evening. It looked like a great evening was

  • This is the week that was…. The BBQ Run!

    The week kicked off on Tuesday with our first “Out & Back” night since last March. The evening was well attended with over 70 of us out together. We ran to Wing and back, embraced the hill out and stormed back down. Some members achieved PB’s on the night... well
