CLUB NEWS

Street Orienteering – Wednesday 19th July 2017
Fun and games as the Plums took to the streets of Welling and Bexleyheath in a well attended Street Orienteering run. Stephen Shine and Martin Alexander finished in first position followed by the terrific trio of Phil Holland, Tricia Hulse and Kerry Arbuckle, with Kit Claxton and Jim Anderson finishing in a strongly contested third place. Many thanks to Geoff Goodwin for organising such a successful event. The results and race report are now available to download. The results include a list of the controls each team visited.

Club Championship 2017
The Club Championship is slowly picking up momentum, we have six members taking part. Carol Marsh still tops the table with an age-graded 5k time of 17:52 and a 10k time of 37:22! Those times 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.
