Newsletter 30th June

Hello Harriers,

Well done to the Harriers who ran the cross country this week and to those of you who took part in the Hereford Triathlon.

A big congratulations to our Couch to 5k runners who ran the Newent Parkrun yesterday.  It was certainly a hot one!

Run this week is from Farmers Arms, Wellington Heath – 6:30 to run at 6:45.  Warm up at 6.30. Lead runners are:

Gentle Joggers – HELP NEEDED

Easy Runners – Mark

Runners – Sarah


Tony and I will be leading a run from the Rugby Club, distance 5k, pace to suit all.  We are meeting to start running at 6:30.


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.

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
