Club Cross Country Handicap - 20th June 2018 (click image to enlarge)

Club Cross Coutry Handicap
A warm Summer evening for the 16 runners who took part in the handicap and the 15 marshalls out on the course. A great run by Jessica, who continues to improve on her times and fitness. We had two non-finishers, Vikki picked up an injury in a heavy fall, and Kimi Kaur just completed one lap. Hugo and Lawrence were vying for fastest time, with Hugo just making it by 15 seconds. Well done to everyone who took part, the full results are on the Results page.

Club 10k Road Handicap – Wednesday 4th April 2018
The first handicap race of 2018 and the weather conditions made for perfect running. We had a great turnout of 25 runners, although unfortunately Ronnie John mistakenly took the wrong route and made the decision to retire. We had some outstanding performances on the night, Phil Holland finished in the quickest time of 41:59. Vikki Russell broke two personal bests on her way to finishing in 55:41. Dave Appasawmy was the first runner to finish, but as he wasn't a member, it was left to Vikki to claim the trophy as the first Plum home. Danielle McTaggart finished in second place with Graham Willsher taking the third spot. Full results are on the Results page.

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.

Cross Country Handicap – Wednesday 20th June 2018
The cross country handicap starts from Oxleas Common, with the first runner away at 6:30 pm. The course follows the club's cross country route which is hosted each year as part of the Kent Fitness League. The route is always well marshalled by our lovely volunteers. If you're interested in taking part, please contact Jim Anderson or contact the club for further details.

Club Beer Run – Saturday 21st July 2018
The Club Beer Run will be on Saturday 21st July starting with a coach ride to our starting point, from here we will take in a selection of Kent's finest hostelries with a Ploughman's Lunch to soak up some of the beer. The route is normally a well-kept secret until the day. There may be mud, there may be river crossings, there will certainly be lots of fun! If you're interested in taking part, please contact Paul Hiles for further details.
