On The Spot – Dan Burton

When did running begin for you? I have my brother to blame for this. He forced me to go running with him once after sixth-form and I’ve not stopped since. Why do you run? Escapism – it’s a great way to unwind. Plus, if I run, I can eat what I like! What race or […]

Erika’s journey from couch to 10k

Erika Hughes tells us about her achievements as a participant in this year’s Couch to 5k and 5k Plus groups: As a whole, I’ve never been able to stick to anything properly!

The event is a mini version of the Green Belt Relay, which does away with a complete circumnavigation of London, instead focusing on (probably) […]

On The Spot – James Burnard

When did running begin for you? When I was at university; a friend asked if I wanted to do a half marathon and I said yes. It was less than a week away! I got round, but going down stairs was not easy for a week! After that, I occasionally ran with friends. It wasn’t […]

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 […]

On The Spot – Katie Plummer

When did running begin for you? In April 2016. I was at the beginning of my PhD write up and almost totally sedentary so I started Couch to 5k. That month my friend signed me up for Edinburgh marathon the following May, so I had a year to go from Couch to Marathon. It was […]
