Saltwell 10k race report from Nina

The motto “nil desperandum” does seem a bit unnecessarily alarmist for a running club so I always approach any Saltwell Harriers race with some degree of trepidation. Our first Harrier quest was to find the race headquarters, which (from the description of marshals) seemed to be some tall-towered edifice of fable, hidden deep in an enchanted wood. I made up the enchanted bit, but Saltwell Park is a great bit Continue Reading →

Membership renewal for 2018

For most members your current club membership fee covers you until the end of December 2017. Membership fees for 2018 were decided by members at the last AGM and will increase by £1.00, to reflect an increase of the same amount in England Athletics (EA) athlete affiliation fee that the club pays for members. Renewal can be made anytime between now and the end of March 2018. The renewal rates Continue Reading →

Brampton to Carlisle 10 mile race.

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. I Continue Reading →

There was many Continue Reading →
