Leon’s Quest continues and takes him to Scotland for the Loch Ness Marathon

What a weekend I’ve had, traveling up to Loch Ness for the best marathon I have done, this being my 4th time. Left home at 8pm for the little four and a bit hour drive to Manchester where I stayed at a friends house arriving just after midnight. Then up at 6am and back in […]

Richmond marathon – Sharon Burfield tells of her second 26.2 miles

This was my second marathon so I knew roughly what to expect. I was slightly apprehensive about what time I would run it in, as I had finished with a good time at Brighton, and didn’t want to let myself down, or to put too much pressure on myself! I had looked at ‘good for […]

30th September/1st October – SJ Weekend Run Down
