Cross Country Handicap - 19th June 2019

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.

Vikki Russell is currently the only member who has submitted times for all distances, so by default, Vikki is our leading runner!

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.
