There is no session on at Blue Flames this Thursday due to the Christmas meal at the Ship. The Smiths are putting on an appetizer run at 1500 from Blue Flames for anyone available. So remember to be Hand in Glove as it might be chilly… Phil.
The day started with me wishing I had jogging bottoms as soon as I got outside. Then the ongoing questions of what to wear and whether or not what I had chosen was being under dressed. It didn’t bode well as approaching Brampton seeing a thick layer of frost. Today’s race was going to be a chilly one indeed. I also forgot my trusty before race banana and after race ham sandwich.

Ladies report from Nina When you say “Aykley Heads” to a cross country runner there are three words which spring to mind: two of them are “mud” and “hills”. The third is best not printed.

Stephen Schubeler wins the Rother Valley / Sheffield city10k, successfully defending his title from last year. This is a multi-terrain race, held in windy conditions and we look forward to his race report in due course.
Club stalwarts Allen Mulliss and Craig Smith completed their 300th toon-run this morning. That’s a thousand miles around the moor and over 4 days worth of time spent doing it. Gentleman, we salute you!
Heaton’s James Mckenzie finished 9th in Parma Half marathon. A warm day and undulating course didn’t seem to put him off. He puts his excellent running down to post-race recovery wear of an unusual type and the support from esteemed teammate Mr Les Smith. We await a full race report in due course and also from the 10K. We are also awaiting an article from our new found guru in sports nutrition Jack Continue Reading →
