Wednesday Run

Happy New Year all. I have the duty of setting the route this week and we will be doing a spot of ‘park’ running. Long and short routes available. Sample map attached.

A couple of less well lit bits on the route, so head-torches recommended (although a slightly varied well lit alternative is available). Please wear high viz and wrap up warm as could be a chilly one! - Continue Reading -

Penshurst 5 Report

If anyone has not done this race before, I strongly suggest you get it into your calendar for 2020. As many of you know I can’t run up hills and only make guest appearances at cross country events. However for some reason this is one of my favourite events; low key, very scenic and cake at the finish (close second to Eridge on the cakes front).

Luckily I was on babysitting duty at the XC on Saturday, this meant that I had a significant advantage over other Harriers and was relatively fresh, I wouldn’t normally be first Harrier in an XC! - Continue Reading -

A shorter distance run – following a prompt 7:30 start – compiled by the Routemaster Bus Holder of the day would be much appreciated so we may start as early as possible. - Continue Reading -

Pre Christmas and New Year Run Reports

13th Christmas Pudding Dash

I went to a winter solstice gathering on the 21st December and became aware of the 13th Christmas Pudding Dash the following day at Pett, in East Sussex. This was a Nice-Work event and run on footpaths, fields and through woodland starting and finishing at the village hall in Pett. It was advertised as 5 miles but the recent rain had left parts of last years course flooded so the route was changed slightly and it end up at around 4.6 miles distance. That said it was a pretty challenging course with mud, lots of ups and downs as well as twists and turns through the woods so the distance was quite adequate. - Continue Reading -

Staplehurst 10 Report

There were 10 Harriers (and Dillon) taking part in the End of Year 10 on Sunday, starting and finishing in Staplehurst. Conditions were perfect, and the course is relatively flat and fast, barring a slight incline after 6 miles. There were no PBs, but Rose, Marc and Gemma were running their first 10 mile races as Harriers; Steve was the 2nd M60 runner and Gemma, Kelvin, Mike and myself won the team prize (the fastest cumulative time for 4 club runners, including a lady) I have the trophies (as well as bottles of Lidl’s finest lager) for the team, which I shall bring along to the club.

Well done to everyone that ran, and a Happy New Year! - Continue Reading -
