After an internet search I found the Foxborough 10k, a rather low key event organised by a local high school. I’m not a fan of the 10k distance – it always seems to be to be painful for the whole race – but it was the only event I could find. 125 of us toed the line after…

Report from Richard Smith: What could make more sense than a 350 mile round trip to take part in an off-road race in South Worcestershire? Primarily it was the infamous  prospect of pie & mash at my former watering hole and local cider come evening time with old friends. Saturday afternoon races have their perks! The Beacon Race is organised by my former running club, Worcester AC and takes place on the picturesque Malvern Hills which overlook the counties of…

Sunday 14th October: Palma half marathon

Report from Phil Robinson: A few of us exchanged last weekend’s Yorkshire wind and rain for a sunny few days in Majorca.

The 10k was entirely along the seashore in the sun but the narrow streets of the old town offered some shade in the later part…
