Well done to all of the runners that took part in the Wyedean Relay. They came 19th out of 37 teams.
Run this week is from the Rugby Club, – 6:30 to run at 6:45. Warm up at 6.30. Lead runners are:
Jeffers – help needed
Gentle Joggers – Mark
Easy Runners – help needed
Runners – Sue K
Please can I remind you of the running group pace and distance. It is important that groups stay together as much as possible and those faster runners in the group should muster back to the runner at the back. This is really important as it makes everyone feel part of the club.
Jeffers – Run/walk group
Gentle Joggers – 11 – 12 min mile pace, around 3 – 4 miles
Easy Runners– 10 – 11 min mile pace, around 4 miles.
Runners – 9 -10 min mile pace, around 4 – 5 miles
Sprinters – 8 – 9 min mile pace, around 5 –6 miles
Elites – 7 – 8 min mile pace, around 7-8 miles
Couch to 5k
The next Couch to 5k will start 24th September. As we have spent all of the Tesco money this course will now need to be paid for. Cost £25, if you know anyone who may be interested they can contact Sally S at email@example.com.
On Saturday 7th September, Newent Parkrun are holding a first timers event. So if you haven’t tried parkrun before, this is the ideal opportunity. You do not have to run it as Parkrun is open to walkers too.
Now you have your ICE tags, don’t forget to put them on!
