Thames Trot 50 – Graham Kelly breaks his Ultra duck

Thames Trot 50 – Graham Kelly breaks his Ultra duck

So where does this all begin, especially for someone who ran his last London Marathon in 2008 and basically someone who sticks to Parkruns & 10k’s. Well of all places Waterstones in Guildford.

G3 Fitstuff Off-Road Series – completing the set by Danni Scott

I heard recently from Patrick Wadsworth about new runner Danni Scott who despite only starting running and joining the club last July had done really well at the recent G3 Fitstuff series of events.

Leon Hicks – My journey to run 100 Marathons

Sometimes peoples’ achievements and aspirations simply blow your mind. Around Christmas I started hearing chat about someone who was planning to run 52 marathons in 52 weeks. Astounded by the sheer physical challenge of running and recovering, let alone the logistics I dug deeper and will hand over to Leon to tell his story….. My […]
