January report

January is a time for resolutions, but also it would seem this the season for a good old cold 10km. Lots of you got the base layers on and showed this cold weather who’s boss. We had a cracking range of races from some belters around Parks, in the form of Greenwich, Hyde Park, Kelston and Brockwell. To less trodden paths and therefore more muddy, in some cases waist deep which Matt Garnet and David Guest had the pleasure of in Doynton Hard (five river crossing) Half Marathon. A spare pair of shoes were required come the end. (only after pushing fellow racers cars out of the car park - lots of good deeds earned that day!) Doynton Hard Half 2018

As the XCountry season draws to a close we managed to pack two XCountry runs in, firstly ‘we did do nothin’ gov’ but took a trip to old WormWood Scrubs to pound the flat but hard course that is Wormwood scrubs. Two long laps ensured legs were suitably knackered come Sunday. A merry band of us, also ventured south for the Southern Championships (that’s right mixing with the big deals in the running world, even had a few lap me, felt right famous) held in Brighton. The Morning of the race was lovely, however that could not be said at the start, lets put it this way if you packed spikes well done, to quote the famous Bon Jovi album it was ‘Slippery when Wet’. However we all made it around in one piece and very much earned our post match beers.
