Shere 40k – 14th Sept

It was a good morning’s work for Waverley Harriers at the Shere 40k on 14th September. A very scenic route covering the North Downs, Holmbury Hill, Leith Hill, Pitch Hill, St Marthas and Newlands Corner – in all over 1,000m of ascent! More than Snowdon – not bad for Surrey. We picked up several of […]

Pasta Night – 17 April 2013

Around 30 Harriers attended the annual pasta night on April 17th. As well as providing the chance to socialize over a meal and glass of wine, and to talk through last-minute worries or tips for the marathon, the evening raised over £600, a fantastic amount. This was split between the charities supported by the London […]

Another London Marathon Report – 21 April 2013

I was a “first-timer” at London and had such a fantastic day. Having watched so many other runners in London over the years I really enjoyed experiencing it from the other side, and the atmosphere was amazing. The best bit was rounding the corner to see Tower Bridge where we used to watch the race […]

Evesham Ultra – 21st Apr 2013

OK – so I wasn’t running the London Marathon and had been gutted to miss out on a two day race along the Cotswolds Way earlier in April (due to a bout of the dreaded flu). As luck would have it along came the Evesham Ultra – a new entrant to the long distance scene […]

Jurassic Coast Challenge 22nd – 24th March 2013

Team Frost survive the Jurassic Coast Challenge – 3 marathons in 3 days on the South Coast Path from Charmouth to Studland. The weather conditions proved to be the greatest challenge of all – 45mph winds, rain, freezing temperatures and mud, mud and more mud! The event was very well organised and friendly with the […]

Frensham Ponds Sunday run

Thanks to Steve for planning a great run from Witley Common over to Frensham Great Pond this weekend. Fortunately the expected sleet held off and it was a brisk but beautiful morning. Steve and Mike, being in the final stages of marathon preparation, were in fine form – even managing to sustain a lengthy conversation […]

Final cross country of the season

I would like to thank everybody who represented Waverley Harriers in the Today’s Runner League for 2012/3! We seem to have achieved 6th place out of 20 clubs in our first season! This is a fantastic achievement for a relatively small club. We had a full mens and ladies team at each of the 6 […]
