CLUB NEWS

10 mile handicap – Sunday 10th September 2017
Congratulations to Gina Little who won the 10 mile handicap on Sunday, finishing just 50 seconds ahead of Martin Alexander, with Andy Law finishing in third. There were 15 runners in total, on a beautiful morning for running. The volunteers/marshalls did a sterling job in keeping runners on track around the length of the course. Well done to Lee Walker who did a sterling job on the stopwatch and a big thanks to Jim Anderson for calculating the handicaps and collating the results, which will be available shortly.

Club Championship 2017
The Club Championship is slowly picking up momentum, we have seven members taking part. Carol Marsh tops the table with an age-graded 5k time of 17:52 and a 10k time of 37:22. Russell Buchanan is currently the leading male runner with great times for his 5km and 10k. These two will take some beating, so dust off those trainers right now! If you want to take part in this year's championship, remember to submit your times (along with your DOB and details of the event) to the club's email address. Any queries should be sent to the club or to Paul Hiles.

Beginners Training Group

Plumstead Runners run a beginners group on Wednesday evenings for anyone interested in giving running a go. Like us you may not have a Gold medal in your sights but you might want to improve your fitness and well being, meet some new people and have a few laughs. We're not called the 'friendly running club' for nothing!

Plumstead Runners have several qualified 'Leadership in Running Fitness' members to help people go from 'couch to 5k', and with the rest of the qualified members, can help runners build their confidence and progress to running further in a friendly atmosphere. Please contact us via the website for further information.
So with no commitment to join the club why not just come and run and have some fun. Everyone has to start somewhere, and every journey begins with a single step.
