Fancy a Sunday 5Km Trial?

This Sunday (19th Feb) Les has organised a Club Time Trial over 5km.

We will run the 5km route from Alltami Tavarn to Pinfold Lane. We will meet at 10.45 for an 11.00 am start. Les will organise the start, slowest set off first, faster runners later. In theory everybody should finish about the same time. So anybody could win if they have a good day!

Please come along and enjoy a bit of fun with the club as well as a really good training session. Afterwards we can enjoy tea and bikkies etc.

Les has put a great deal of time and effort into the event. Please come along and join in. And if you are thinking you don't want to interupt your marathon training, why not use it as the middle or even the end of your long run?

Personally I will be there because I want to beat Matt Rose. Money may have to change hands, I am sure Les can be bribed to fix the start times. I don't mind paying because I have backed myself to win and the bookies are offering me very good odds.

Pub Night

Remember that pub night is next Tuesday (7th) in Running Hare at 8.30.


CC at Oswestry

A good day at Oswestry today. Very cold with a slight breeze. Ground frozen very hard, rough in places with a dusting of light snow, hard on the ankles but good running conditions.

A good turn-out with four ladies and seven men meant we had full teams.

Usual excellent "social" at the end with tea, coffee and cakes while the results are being calculated. Worth waiting for too. Matt 3rd overall, Pete Roberts won V65, Erika 3rd overall. But the really good news is the ladies winning Division Two, a fine, sustained effort by them. Well done all of you.
