Nikki’s Marathon Monthly – Philly

There’s been a few Waverley Harriers running virtual marathons this month, with both London and Manchester running their marathons virtually. Congratulations to all of those who’ve run their first marathons in the last month – it’s been challenging conditions! Race organisers are having to be reactive and adaptive in ensuring their events can take place […]

Nikki’s Marathon Monthly – Owen Kimber

It feels like races are slowly making a come back and race organisers are finding ways to bring us all back together again. However, there are still some virtual runs being organised, offering some of us the chance to get the medal of a race we perhaps wouldn’t have considered before. This month I’ll tackle […]

Nikki’s Marathon Monthly – Kat Hobbs

The world of running feels like it’s slowly becoming a little more social again now. It seems normal to run virtual runs now, with a lot of large scale races offering them as alternatives, like the London Marathon has done – at least we can avoid the crowds! We have the added bonus of group […]

Nikki’s Marathon Monthly – Graham Sampson

Another Marathon Monthly and although most marathons have declared their position, two of them (London and Brighton) are still clutching their cards close to their chests, whilst we (the runners) await their decisions. We do have the excitement of a race in the not too distance future, with the Fox still going ahead, which will […]

Nikki’s Marathon Monthly – Kate Lees

Marathon Mondays are back! I’m Nikki and I still haven’t run my first marathon.

Nikki’s Marathon Monday – Week 9 – Kevin Scott

I’m Nikki and I’m asking some of the Harriers who have run a marathon to share their experiences with me and other first time marathon runners. I think one of the things that most worries me about running a marathon is that there will be a lot of people there. I’m a steadier runner and […]

Nikki’s Marathon Monday – Week 8 – Penny Elliott

I’m Nikki and I’m asking the Harriers that have run a marathon to share their experiences, in the hope that I, and other first time marathon runners, can learn as many tips and tricks before we head out to run our own. The runner I’m speaking to today is Penny Elliott. I know Penny has […]
