Lisa Hale takes a meander along the River Thames in the Thames Meander

Lisa Hale takes a meander along the River Thames in the Thames Meander

The Thames Meander is a three race series in March, August and November, with a half and full option, and a bonus trophy for completing the series!  I’ve a bit of a love/hate relationship with this one, it’s a beautiful flat course up and down the Thames, but in spite of this I’ve never managed […]

Stuart Overhill reviews the Regis 10

Let me take you back to September 15th, I had just completed the Reigate Half Marathon and returned to my car, to find my windscreen plastered in flyers for other running events. Within this I noticed the Regis 10, which was a brand new closed roads event in Bognor Regis on November 5th. I thought […]

Beachy Head Marathon – Andrea Hadfield

Beachy Head Marathon – Andrea Hadfield

I’m not entirely sure what inspired me to sign up, possibly the promise of plenty of food at the aid stations and a 9hr cut off, but being at the end of the racing ‘season’ I’d nearly forgotten about it by the time the end of October rolled around. Every person in the club I’d […]

Wimbledon Half – Gavin Loader

Wimbledon Half – Gavin Loader

Having once briefly lived in Wimbledon, I felt like the local half marathon would almost count as home turf and a definite race for me to enter as my season draws to a close. Plus, I entered my first race on the common way back in 2001, so it seemed like a long overdue return. […]
