Spring Marathoners (Posted 27 April)

So far this year 38 members have completed one or more marathons - and more are scheduled to join them later in the year. Events include London (14), Manchester (20), Brighton (3), Paris (2), Madrid (1), Boston (1), Tokyo (1) plus more local, lower key events - but just the same distance! Six members have run 2 marathons, Liane Warren 3 and marathon specialist Roy Young has already notched up another 5! Click on the photo above to see just some of our 26.2 club. Plenty of success too with a host of pbs. Six completed their first ever marathon.

 

Quiz Night 26 April (Posted 27 April)

Over 40 turned up at the Mason's to enjoy Harvey Wiles varied questions and compete for the team prize. The winnng team included a few who were around when Harvey was a club member - did they remember the questions from the past or did they have inside information? No - they simply had the highest combined ages!

 

GP Leagues (Posted 20 April)

All league tables now up to date

 

Handicap Series Tables (Posted 15 April)

Tables revised - missed off the scores for the 5m run at the Winter Handicap - thanks to Elizabeth Hull for pointing it out.

 

Promotion already for Paul! (posted 12 April)

Just in case anyone is still unaware, Paul Zywicki ran his first sub 25 minutes for nearly 2 years at parkrun to secure promotion to League 2 of the Grand Prix in 2017 - unless their are any rule changes such as using the alphabet to determine leagues!

 

Manchester Marathon Weekend (Posted 12 April)

34 runners plus supporters turned out in total - 20 for the marathon and 16 for the team relay. Quite a few stayed over for one or two nights with a party of 16 enjoying a celebration dinner on Sunday evening. Another excellent weekend of great company and super efforts from those who claimed pbs to those running their first marathon or half marathon. Pity that there was problems on the bag reclaim which left some members queuing for over 90 minutes.

 

Spring Handicap (posted 8 April)

Fantastic turnout of 78 members for the second race in this year's series,

Results now available - check out the Spring handicap page. Congratulations to Martin Wincer our overall winner and Nicolas Henshaw who was first lady.
