Newsletter 10th October 2021

Hope you have been enjoying this lovely autumnal weather this weekend.

London Marathon 2021

Apologies first of all to Lyn Lott – I got her name wrong in the submission to the Ledbury Reporter.

Congratulations to you all who finished the London Marathon last weekend – either in London or virtually.  I hope you have had a good recovery this week and  we look forward to seeing you all back at the club when you feel ready to run again!

How many of you have entered the ballot for next year?  Hopefully we will get a club place so if you are not successful through the ballot, there may be a chance through our draw.  More details when we know.

Newent Parkrun 16th October

As as way of saying ‘Thank You’ to Newent parkrun  (we have had our Couch to 5K graduation runs here previously) we are taking over the volunteer spots next week.  Thank you to everyone who has put their name forward so far.  I am short of 1 more marshall.  If you can help, please let me know  It would also be good to have a couple of people in reserve as well.

If you would like to be a pacer next week, please let me know, what time you would like to pace people round.  It needs to be a time you can comfortably run the course in.

Parkrun Tourism 30th October

The parkrun venue for this month is the Forest of Dean

Thursday Night Session

The hill session this week will meet at the Market House.  I think Kate has another good session planned for you.

Thursday Hill Session Sign up Sheet

If you would like to carry on with the intervals session, it is  at the usual place New Mills/Prince Rupert Road junctiion at 6:30.

We had a great turnout last week and it was good to see runners from the Gentle Joggers there as well.  Everyone is welcome – you don’t have to be fast.  It’s a way of adding some variety to your running.  It’s easier in a group.  You have to be dedicated to run intervals on your own!

Tuesday Night Session

We are at the Rugby Club as usual this week.  Remember that the fair is in town so you may need to take a different way to get there this week.  It is now dark when we set off, so please remember hi-vis and/or a headtorch.

That’s all for now.
