Year End

Tuesday 31st March marks the end of the club year 2014/15, so next weekend will be the final weekend of racing. So make the most of it and do one more parkrun before we look forward to the AGM (20th April), Marathons and the ELVIS series 2015.

On that note why not think about what you want to see happen at your club in the new year 2015/16.

Please remember we are a club run by the people for the people. If you don't ask you don't get.

Weekly Results

On the penultimate weekend of the club year, George got yet another PB in the Beckton parkrun reducing his 5K time even further to 24 mins and 13 secs. George has broken his Half Marathon, 5K and 1.5 mile time trial PB in the last few weeks.. Keep it going!

Martin Q also goes from strength to strength as his 5K time improved by 14 secs at Greenwich parkrun.

Once again we had a few members doing Half Marathons: Tony and Asad in Reading. Peter and Alain in Hastings. This was Alain's debut Half Marathon for the club.

Last but not least a big congratulations to Andre who completed two marathons in two days, in an average time of 4 hours 16mins.
