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

On the Spot – Tristan Greaves

When did running begin for you? When I was training in judo, I started running to supplement my fitness. It took off a lot more when I started football refereeing: Running is pretty much key to that, so a real incentive to train! I haven’t looked back since (good job too, or I’d probably run […]

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 […]
