Kent Fitness League – Oxleas Woods – Sunday 25th November 2018
Near perfect weather conditions for the third match in the series. Another terrific turnout for the club from members old and new as well as family and friends. We had 33 runners and over thirty marshalls. There was a minute's applause before the start of the run in memory of Ray Marshall. Our runners performed admirably with Lawrence Robinson leading us home in 29th place! Our combined team result on the day put us in 10th place for both the ladies and mens teams. The full results are available at Kent Fitness League website.
Run for Ray – Wednesday 21st November 2018
We had over eighty runners and walkers turn up for our Run for Ray. Thanks to everyone who joined us to pay tribute to one of our founding members, Ray Marshall. The turnout speaks volumes for the impact Ray had on so many of us. It was a very emotional evening with lots of stories and recollections of our beloved Raymondo.
Ray will live on through Plums and his life will always be remembered through the memories we all have of him. Ray's family have requested that no flowers be sent, however if anyone would like to contribute in some way there is now a Justgiving page where members / friends can donate towards Ray's funeral costs and give him a great send off!
There are twelve members competing for the club championship. Richard Vero is the current leading male runner and Jessica Howson is leading the women's standings, members have until December 31st to submit their times; so send them to Paul Hiles as soon as you can!
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.
Kent Fitness League – Match 5 – Sunday 6th January 2019
The fifth fixture of the 2018-2019 season will take place on Sunday 6th January with the race itself starting at 11:00 am. The venue is Nurstead Court, Meopham and members are requested to car-share as much as possible as nearby parking (in a field) is quite limited. The two lap course is undulating and can be quite muddy in places with a few twists and turns in a small wooded area, spikes or trail shoes are recommended. Please contact Les Pullen, Nicole Bonnet or Keith Bygrave if you have any queries.
