“Life is short…. Running makes it seem longer” – Baron Hansen

 Covid 19 

With the numbers on the rise it is important we are following the Government’s and EA guidance when we are running in groups. Please ensure you maintain social distancing especially before and after the runs.

 A return to some group running 

The running buddies groups have been extended to a maximum of 12 people to each group, see posts on website. If you wish to run you must read the disclaimer and complete the form for the group you wish to run with.


Please ensure you stay safe and wear some Hi-Viz when running and even consider wearing a light. It is very difficult to see runners when driving if they are not wearing anything reflective.


Winter 5K TT 

26 runners took part in the staggered start time trial in waves of 3 – 4. Thanks to James Blackshaw for organising and to all the marshals who gave up their time.  Full results on the website.
