When? Monday 28 March, 1830

Where? Meet Viaduct Meadow Car Park (under Abbey Road Bridge)

What’s the trophy challenge?· One mile, out & back course· Split time taken at the half-mile turning point· Final time taken at the mile finish· Winner = he/she whose outbound half mile time is closest to their return half mile time· So, how fast or slow you go doesn’t matter, perfectly even pacing means you win a massive trophy (see Note 2) you can keep forever, presented later that evening in a local pub (after the Monday Club runs).Simples!By the way, the mile run is ‘naked’ (see Note 3) of technology. No watches, GPS timers, phones etc allowed. Run on feel, feel the love.

How does this work with Monday runs?· Sign up for “The Colin Trophy” on the app to take part· Also sign up for your choice of Club run if you’re doing that too – these will commence immediately after the one-mile challenge finishes.· Mass warm up at 1830, final race instructions, do the mile challenge (you should all be finished 1850ish)· Join your Run Leader for your Club run.· Regroup in a local pub (TBC) for results and the trophy presentation.Notes:1 – If this is bewildering, sign up on the app and just show up2 – It really is a seriously impressive trophy, and large. Trust me on this one.3 – As the word ‘naked’ has been used, be assured Robert will be under close supervision at all times 😊.See you Monday.

Monday club runs are back

The new format of Monday club runs and efforts sessions are now happening regularly. If you want to join one of the regular club runs or efforts sessions you will need to book a place using the My Running Club app. Look out for future planned runs under the “Training” section of the app. All runs are led by a qualified (LiRF) run leader and there are normally groups to suit all paces.

If you are not a member of the club please use the Contact us function on this site and we can set you up on the app with temporary access so that you can come and try out before committing to join the club.

You can download the app to your phone/tablet or use the webpage on a computer to register. Please sign up with the name and email address you have registered with the club.

Places are limited and get booked up quickly as we don’t have enough run leaders and continue to rely on the same small number of amazing volunteers to organise and lead the sessions.

If you are interested in becoming a run leader please contact a member of the committee. The club will pay for you to do the England Athletics LiRF course.

New Committee

The new committee are getting warmed up and recently held their first committee meeting.

We are not race ready just yet but training is going well and we should be up to speed in no time.
