Andrea Hadfield tells of the Hampshire Hoppit and Giants Head Marathon

I know for some people in the club doing 2 marathons in a week is a regular habit (mentioning no names….Leon) but for me this was a bit of a new foray in the multi-marathon world. I had completed the Giants Head Marathon last year, and fancied another trip down to Dorset, so I made […]

Reddam House 10K – John King tells of a race around stunning grounds plus the Hill of doom!

On Sunday morning it was time to hop on the bike and cycle to Redham House (formerly Bearwood College) just outside of Wokingham for an early morning 10K in the sun.  At 7am it was already pretty warm, so a stretch out on the cycle was in order which saved getting the car out and […]

Mark Neve tells of his latest Marathon; Star Run

I guess some people might think running 8 x 3.28 mile out and back laps as a strange thing to do on a Sunday when an England game is on, but that’s what I did last Sunday. The event was Saturn running’s “Star Runs IV” complete with a fantastic Star Wars medal. I’ve been a […]

Helen Vizard tames the hills of the Alresford 10k

I arrived early as usual ready for the 10am start. There was plenty of parking at the school opposite the start. Always a positive for me when you can park close by. I collected my race number timing chip and T shirt and the small size was actually ‘Small’. Another bonus to this race. I […]

Tour of Tameside – Patrick Wadsworth takes in this northern multi-stage event

Last year on a visit to my In-Laws it was suggested that I took part in a 7 mile run with my sister in law and her partner.  Anything for a PB I thought as I had never run a 7 mile race before.  I met them at their house and we walked DOWN the […]
