Sunday 10th March 2019 saw 21 hardened Sandhurst Joggers’ take to the coast of Devon for the renowned ‘Grizzly’ event, along with its little sister the ‘Cub’.

Twenty five years ago I studied at Brunel University in Uxbridge, in the borough of Hillingdon, West London.

It’s amazing what you can achieve when you put your mind to it and are a bit stubborn, add in the odd doughnut and the thought of getting your very own “Precious” and you have the recipe for a great weekend of running. Last year I so got fed up with time chasing when running events […]
