Membership fees

Despite the name, the club participates in all disciplines of running, fell, cross country and road and welcomes applications from runners of all abilities to join us. If you are not sure if the club is for you, why not come to one of our training sessions or one of our regular pub runs. You will be under no obligation to join, but you will get a feel for the club and a better idea if the club is for you. You can merely turn up to a training session unannounced, but it would be better if you contacted our club secretary first (details on the contacts page) and let him know that you will be coming and he will make sure that whoever is leading the group will look out for you. If you are an absolute beginner to running, you too are most welcome to join us in one of our sessions, but please contact our secretary first and he will make sure that you will have a programme with which you are comfortable.

Berlin Marathon - 29 September 2019

Jonathan Cleaver has been in training for this race for some time and this paid off on Sunday when he came home in 300th position in a time of 2:34:51.  Here is his report of the day:

Definitely up there as possibly my favourite world major with it being a flat fast course with masses of support on the roadside.  The day started off well with clear blue skies, but as we started to race the clouds came over, with wind and light rain.  I had a target in mind to pace at 05:43 min miles, but I made a bit of mistake trusting this to my GPS and found out by half way I was already 80 seconds adrift which is really hard to get back in the second half.  I hit 20 miles at around 01:55 which had me in range for a 02:33, but my legs started to fade ever so slightly drifting me nearer to 06:00 miles for the final 10km landing me on 02:34:51 and 300th place overall in a field of over 44,000. That's a good couple of minutes knocked off my PB from Tokyo which I am delighted with.  As always with the marathon - however many you have done - it takes you back to school and you learn about what to do and not to do next time!  That's all 6 majors completed now starting back in 2011 in NYC finishing in 03:23.
