Club News for Everyone

 

Thursday 27th August - Ian Martin's last coaching session

Last Thursday evening Ian Martin coached his last training session.

Ellis presented him with a card and suitable bottle of red wine, in the presence of his training group and members of the Committee.

As a club we will have a celebration for Ian where we can all show our appreciation when the rules on social gatherings allow this to happen.

 

Saturday Morning Social running group and Kate Knight's Fundraising for Sash charity

Kate turned up to the Saturday Morning Social running group on 29th August having had her event the South Coast Challenge 100Km cancelled. She had come on foot from home to find us, and then ran with us 5Km around Priory Park followed by coffee at the park cafe. When we dispersed, she went down Flanchford Road and continued throughout the day to cover 40 miles. On her return home she was very wet and cold so needed a few hours rest to get warmth back before carrying on to finish the 100Km by completing 22 miles on Sunday in thankfully drier conditions.

Senior Training Sessions

Ian Edmonds is this week (1st September) starting a 6pm Tuesday "Social Recovery Run", from Battlebridge, to allow more people to run with him with the current limit of 12. Initially simply turn up, we will assess if we need to restrict based on how many turn out.

You can see the participants of the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday coached sessions here. There are now more than 12 participants on each list, and going forward the numbers for each group will rely on participants occasional reasons for being an absentee from the group (such as holiday or injury) to limit the groups to 12 people per session. If you know that you can't make a particular session please try to let us know so that your place can be reallocated.

  • Moisture-adjusting, quick-drying, light-weight and comfortable
  • Zipped stand-up collar
  • Contrasting insets and flatlock seams

For £24 we have these running shirts available for men and women on the iProSports club zone here
