I am honoured and privileged to be taking over this article from the Lazy Runner, they certainly are big running shoes to fill!
I won’t bore you too much with the finer details about me, but I think it is important to know that I joined SRC two and a half years ago, telling my wife that I would just go along to keep fit. Well, if only she knew what an obsession this would become for me; she probably would’ve never let me join! However please do not let this put you off joining our club, I cannot recommend what running, and our club offers.
If you are just looking at getting or keeping fit, training for an event, improving your running or if you want to enjoy a social run, then please join us, you will not be disappointed. We meet at the Southwell Leisure Centre at 6.45pm on Tuesday and Thursday nights.
The Summer League is well under way now and two races have already taken place. SRC organise arguably the best race of the series, which takes place at Hexgreave Hall. Again the race was a massive triumph, despite some unwelcomed rain. The success of this race is down to the helpers and organisers from the club.
There have been too many outstanding individual performances to mention from the month, but hopefully if you come and join us you will hear all about them. We look forward to meeting you!
