Just had a Christmas email from a race I did ten years ago and thought it might be of interest to the trail runners among you. They are looking for referrals for the 2019 race held in November. This is an extreme event and includes The Everest Challenge Marathon.

🎅🏼🎄⛄️Social Run and London Marathon Place Draw⛄️🎄🎅🏼
Come and join us for our social run ‪next Thursday 20 December‬ followed by a free drink on the club. We will be meeting at Hutton Moor at the usual time of ‪6.50pm‬ for ‪a 7pm‬ start.
We hear there’s some rather interesting Christmas light displays in the old RAF Locking camp - now known as Locking Parklands, so we thought we’d head on down there and check them out.
There may be some poorly lit stretches so if we could have a few head torches in each group that would help. If you have one please bring it along but don’t worry if you don’t.
Meet back at the bar at The Pavilion afterwards for a drink and to find out who has won a coveted London Marathon place. Will it be you? We also have four free Weston half places up for grabs in a draw for those who helped out with the Cracker.

Responding to the increased demand from members to be involved in the focused training that Jamie provides his group on Tuesday and Thursday evenings we will shortly be starting a second similar group. For his group to be successful it is not possible for Jamie to keep including more members so a second group with similar objectives will be formed for any further members who wish to undertake this type of training. The group will support runners who wish to take part in a more individualised and performance focused training regime than that of the regular Tuesday rep and Thursday group runs. It will be a fairly small group focused mainly on road around reps, hill reps and LT runs of varying lengths. If you think that this may be of interest to you and you are currently running 5k's in under 21 mins or 5 miles in under 35 mins then please drop me a mail and I will contact you to give you some more detail and discuss further.

On Tuesday of this week (4/12) we will be running a charity mile. We will be using the clock at the finish line so you will be able to see your own time and let Carol or I know and we will try to produce a list of times that can be recorded on the system. There will be a cost of £1 per runner with the money raised being matched by the club. Money raised will be going to the Seashore Centre at Uphill hospital. Meeting at the normal shelter on the seafront between Trop and Sealife at 6:50 for 7:00. There will be a substantial warm up and everybody will start together. Current forecast for 7:00pm is SE wind so if it stays this way we will run from the beach hut end towards the Grand Pier which will give a slight following wind.

Have to agree with Josh. Ran the DD in 2017, returning next year, without a doubt the most testing and rewarding road run around. Marathon distance is slightly hillier than Snowdonia with the added bonus of an extra hilly 10k tacked on the end - lovely!! More free cake than even Junkie can manage post-race as well

Dartmoor Discovery Ultramarathon Saturday 1st June 2019. If you want to test yourself on the road beyond marathon distance this is the one. 32 miles 674 yards around the roads of Dartmoor. The support from the marshalls is incredible with 9 waterstations on the course. Entries open (postal only) on the Teignbridge Trotters website. We need one more for a male team and it would be great to have a ladies team too.

Presidents Breakfast Run

I wish to thank the nine members who turned up on Saturday morning in not too pleasant conditions to say the least and getting soaked for their efforts, but they were not alone as the 15 cyclist also battled through the frequent downpours and a series of punctures making it a good turnout with a total attendance of 37. But at least we all enjoyed the autumn colours which are amazing this year when the sun did come out.

Bristol Children’s Help Society who very generously let us use the excellent venue free of charge ever since I first started this annual event will receive the £131.40 collected on Saturday. ( I have only kept a record since 2012 so the running total is now £642.84).
Finally many thanks must go to the consistent gang of helpers in the Green Aprons and their assistances, it's much appreciated to be able rely on such help.
Better weather is forecast for next years run!!

Ness we used to do it a few years ago after they stopped doing their half (very hard) so happy to consider putting it back in.

It is a nice tough race, about 12 miles I think, big climb in 1st 4 miles. If you have a look on their website you will see photos of me in 2003 with bloody knee after I fell over on the top. Needed 7 stitches and 2 months off running.
