Post marathon feelings

The completion of your first marathon is a huge achievement. You’ll have a medal, a Facebook feed full of congratulations from friends and family, maybe a ton of Kudos on Strava and a terrible inability to descend stairs any way other than backwards. Everybody knows that marathons are gruelling on the body but what about […]

Time to Talk – Feb 1st

Thursday Feb 1st is ‘Time to Talk’ Day, a chance for all of us to be more open about mental health; to talk, to listen, to change lives. We’ll mark the day with a ‘mindful’ warm up at the start of the usual evening club run, and encourage anyone who wants to, to talk about […]

Nikki’s Doctor Who fantasy

Thanks to Nikki for this great story of her Couch to 5k experience, complete with Daleks … I’ve never been a sporty person. I did everything I could to avoid PE at school. For example, I learnt quickly that if I (or my tennis partner) managed to hit the tennis ball over the fence of […]

401 Challenge

Today we had the privilege of supporting Ben Smith on his 401 Challenge, supporting the anti-bullying charities Stonewall and Kidscape. This was his 61st back to back marathon day. We were kind to Ben and managed to put on a sunny autumnal day and a gentle route through Godalming, along the Downs Link to Cranleigh and […]

C25K Parkrun

Couch to 5k a great success!

Waverley Harriers ran it’s first ever series of beginners sessions this summer. 15 participants joined our ‘couch to 5k’ programme in April. Most were complete beginners to running, whilst others had run before and wanted some support to get back into running. Our first session was a lovely summers evening walk/run session round Broadwater pond.  […]

Waverley finishes 5th

The last cross country race of the 2014/5 season took place on Sunday at Staunton Country Park. Our team consisted of 16 runners – a strong team to end the season! The men came 3rd and the ladies came 5th, and overall we finished a brilliant 3rd! We have enjoyed an incredibly successful cross country […]

Cross Country – Queen Elizabeth Park

  There was another great turnout of 24 Waverley Harriers club members at the second cross country race of the season at Queen Elizabeth country park. It was a fantastic sunny morning with beautiful, but tough, running through the beech woods and muddy trails. The race results are not yet published, but with such a […]

Pamber X Country Results

A great result from the first X Country race of the season – Waverley Harriers coming 6th overall out of 22 clubs, with the ladies 8th and men 7th. With a few familiar faces missing due to well deserved birthday celebrations on Saturday night we still fielded full teams! The sun came out for a […]

Cross country already?!

Can it really be cross country season already? It seems like summer is only just over, although with all the rain over the last few days there should be some decent mud on the trails. Sarah’s emails have just woken me up to the fact that the first fixture is this weekend 12th October at […]

Tiffany’s journey back to running

In my 20’s and 30’s (whilst the children were little) I enjoyed jogging alone, I liked the peace and quiet, the time to think and the chance to explore the area I was in. Running on my own also meant I could go short distances at my own pace – very slow, so slow that […]
