On the Spot – Chris Peck

When did running begin for you? I ran cross-country at school, loved it and was fairly good. Unfortunately when I turned 14 and there were just three of us left doing running, and one of them had put it down on the form as an accident, so the school stopped offering it as an option […]

Surrey Half Runners Blog – Nikki Legg

The Surrey Half The Surrey Half seemed like the perfect half marathon to do for my first 13 mile run. I was told it was flat, well organised and had a good atmosphere. Even better, it was local. We arrived on Sunday morning to a hubbub of a race village, with long queues for the […]

On the Spot – Annette Lee

When did running begin for you? Apart from a brief stint of sprinting at school, I didn’t ‘take up’ running until I’d bought my first flat when I was 21. Living alone miles away from civilisation and friends brought some challenges in terms of keeping myself occupied. So, I signed up for the Great South […]

On the Spot – Holly Yorston

When did running begin for you? I started running last February (2018) whilst in New Zealand on my sabbatical, purely because I couldn’t keep up a gym routine whilst travelling.

SCCL Bourne Woods – Results

Well done to all of the Harriers to who turned up to SCCL’s Bourne Woods race for a mixed weather experience (part storm, part sunshine and blue sky).  Initial fears that we might not be able to field a women’s team were, thankfully, unfounded.   Overall, we finished in a respectable 10th place.  Provisional results are […]

On the Spot – Amy Waring

When did running begin for you? In 2011, I took part in the annual Cambridge Science Park charity fun run. It wasn’t my idea and I wasn’t thrilled about it. It was a relay race with each member of the team running the 1.1 mile loop around the Science Park. Despite my reservations and total […]
