Twenty go mad in Dorset - 02/07/2017

Ten men and ten women headed down to the Jurassic Coast at the weekend to take part in the annual Charmouth Challenge event. The race is almost entirely off-road, and follows an eight mile hilly course with breathtaking views along the coastline. Classified as a fell race, the course includes over 1,500 feet of climb, and this year’s challenge was made even more so by the rising temperatures in full afternoon sun.

News

03/07/2017

It’s great to see so many club members competing in many different events every weekend. This weekend alone we had members taking part in at least eight different races - not including our championship race at Torbay - from 5k parkruns to ultra marathons and iron distance triathlons.

As the club’s membership continues to grow, it’s just not possible for us to cover all these different activities in our weekly race reports which focus mainly on the club’s championship events and our own races too.

But we’re conscious that this also means that some amazing achievements don’t get the credit they deserve. So please, if you go out and do a race that’s not in the club championship or organised by the club, post about it here so your fellow club members know what you’ve been up to - especially if you get a personal best, or compete in a longer distance event for the first time.

Here’s to a great summer of running for us all.
