Club Time Trial – September 2018

The sweltering conditions of the last two months’ races were a distant memory last night as our 13 hopefuls lined up to take on the club’s own ‘mountain course’ in the last TT of the season. After two wins for the boys and one for the girls so far this summer, Mady Charbine came out […]

Club Time Trial – August 2018

Our winner this month was Owen, followed closely by Jon and Gary (Gary’s second podium finish in 3 events). Results of all events to […]

Running and the Black Dog

Many thanks to Jo L for sharing this account of her experiences running with dogs, both metaphorical and literal. My relationship with running stems entirely from mental health – but not my own. (My own has been sketchy at times, but more on that later.) Some of you will know that Mark’s brother lost his […]

2018 Green Belt Relay

My worst fears about our participation in this year’s race were realised almost immediately as the occupants of car 3 (grey Mazda) watched cars 1 (red Fiat) and 2 (Bill’s car) head off south along the A3, tracing a sub-optimal route towards our nation’s capital.

Snowdonia Marathon 2017

Thank you to Nick Thomas for this brilliant account of his experience at the Snowdonia Marathon! I’d left booking an autumn marathon a bit late this year and as I was already doing the Great South Run I was looking for something in the weeks following that. A quick scout of the available run events […]

95 Miles – 14,700 Feet – One Incredible Experience

Thank you to Neil Boosey for this account of his incredible experience in this year’s West Highland Way race. Well done Neil! The West Highland Way Race has a worldwide reputation as one of the ‘classic’ ultra-marathon races.  Taking place on the long-distance trail between Milngavie (just north of Glasgow) and Fort William in the […]

Why not?

Thank you to Bill Fordham for this account of his experiences at the European Masters Athletics Championships in Denmark. These were the words that started it all : “There is no ‘qualifying standard’ for international masters competition. If you are 35 years of age or more, can afford the time and money to go, then […]
