Farnham Pilgrim Marathon and Half Marathon – SJ Members’ Highlight

Farnham Pilgrim Marathon and Half Marathon – SJ Members’ Highlight

Nigel Evans – “Pilgrim Marathon- beautiful route – bloody hilly – bloody long way – yes would do it again.” Ian Watson – “I’d thoroughly recommend this event.  Even the Half could be done by someone for whom a shorter distance would be considered by them to be a stretch.  If you’re comfortable with doing […]

Ian Watson reports from the Pilgrim Marathon

I’d done The Farnham Pilgrim twice before, doing the Half Marathon each time and I enjoyed it thoroughly both times.  It’s run by Farnham Rotary as a charity event and this sets the tone for the event – it very much has a “run for fun” feel to it, though clearly there is no limit […]

Alison Jones tackles the Farnham Pilgrim Marathon as ‘just’ a training run

Alison Jones tackles the Farnham Pilgrim Marathon as ‘just’ a training run

I really don’t know what possessed me to enter this marathon, off road and very hilly – my two least favourite things! But I was in.  I had a really busy week the week of the Pilgrim so did not manage to run at all, but I had done the Maidenhead Half the Sunday before […]

There is no Tshirt reward or ‘Badge’ for this milestone so Richard celebrated with cake at his home venue. Richard is the Sandhurst Jogger with […]

Masters of the Runiverse – Mark Neve tells of his latest marathon

This was my third lapped event with Saturn running. The layout is the same as most of the Phoenix event runs – 3.28 Mile laps, 8 for marathon distance and you get an awesome medal. I really like this course in Early, as there’s no big bridges! It’s been pretty nice to bump into many […]

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 […]
