10 Mile Handicap – Sunday 8th September 2019
Congratulations to James Otter for winning the Club 10 Mile Handicap in a great time of 1:12:22. Graham Willsher finished in second place and Paul Hiles in third spot. We did have one member who went off route on the way round... and another who decided to run the course backwards... but thankfully everyone made it back to the club in one piece! The barbecue that followed was very well attended, with some delicious food served up by our chefs for the day, Graham Willsher, Les Howson and even Andrew Duff!
Thanks to Jim Anderson for organising the handicaps, and to everyone who helped marshall and those who brought food for the barbecue. The full results are available on the Results page.
Cross Country Handicap – Wednesday 19th June 2019
A terrific turnout for this year's handicap. Following on from the success of last year's event, we invited NEJ Runners to field a team of runners. So on the evening we had 59 runners taking part with NEJ Runners slightly in the majority (numbers wise). For the Plums, we had Geoff Goodwin in first position, Gina Little in second and Louise Tarsky in third (with the all important shower gel!). Lawrence Robinson recorded the fastest time on the day finishing in 23rd place in 00:36:02. Thanks to everyone who made the effort to take part, whether they were running, marshalling or marking out the course... it was a terrific team effort and a great credit to both clubs! The full results are available 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.
