On The Spot – Rachel Greener

When did running begin for you? In 1984 a friend from work suggested doing a half marathon through the Army land in Aldershot, I ran at School, but hadn’t since, I thought I was going to have a heart attack, but got hooked after I recovered and never looked back. Why do you run? I love […]

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

Queen Elizabeth XC Results (SCCL)

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 […]
