Sunday 13th October – Woodland Challenge

Richard Smith writes: “Ran the Woodland Challenge race this morning flawlessly organised by Stadium Runners. From what I could understand the route was completely revised this year following previous complaints that the course, although challenging, lacked woodland. “An off road race, the route took in approx 90 per cent woodland (we all love a bit of woodland) and although no big climbs, the course was undulating (long drags) and muddy. “Delighted to announce that I was the first black and…

Sunday 6th October – Blenheim Palace 10K and Half Marathon

Report by Dave Hainsworth Not able to make the Paris 20K for a variety of reasons a few of us opted for a weekend in Oxfordshire instead. The chosen events are held in and around the grounds of Blenheim Palace which are a magnificent setting for a race, especially with the Palace itself as a backdrop to the start and finish. Scenic in every sense of the word (not quite as undulating as Burn Valley but every bit as picturesque)…

Sunday 6th October – Bournemouth Marathon

Report from the new treasurer Ian Broadbent I ran the inaugural Bournemouth marathon today in sweltering weather on the south coast. It was a strange course circling around the town going back on itself a couple of times and taking in both piers. The finish was good with a stretch out to Poole and back. Managed a provisional time of 4 hrs 4 mins and 33 secs, a PB but I was hoping for a sub 4 hours. But seeing…
