Kent Fitness League - Match 7 – Rough Common, Canterbury – Sunday 4th February 2018
The final race of the season and typical cross country conditions returned. Wet and muddy under foot with icy winds and hail. We had 15 runners and a full compliment for both men and ladies teams. Once again, we had terrific performances throughout; Jake Hussey getting back to some fitness, was the first Plum home. Nicole Bonnet led home a strong ladies team, who finished in 7th position on the day. Overall for the season, we finished in 14th place. Full results are on the Kent Fitness League site.

Kent Fitness League - Match 6 – Nurstead Court, Meopham – Sunday 28th January 2018
A very muddy course, but at least there was some sunshine! We had 17 runners, some great support and most importantly cake!. Today we were blessed with not one, but two Wheelers... both Felicity and Jude made the trip down to sunny Meopham. Everyone negotiated the watersplash without incident, Gary Cambridge even pausing momentarily for a quck scrub! Jake Hussey finished just 21 seconds ahead of a battling Hugo Davies. Louise Tarsky continues to show improvement race on race (marathon training is clearly paying dividends!). The full results are on the Kent Fitness League site.

Kent Fitness League - Match 5 – Minnis Bay, Birchington – Sunday 14th January 2018
A healthy turnout for this the most far-flung of fixtures! We had 13 runners and some very enthusiastic support!. There were great performances throughout the team. The men's team in particular, excelled themselves with five runners in the top 100 positions. Hugo Davies took the honours for the first Plum home. Full results are on the Kent Fitness League site.

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.
