    Saturday afternoon I was out doing 9 miles in the
    rain, hail and sun. Unusually for me I ran in company and actually found it

    This was very enjoyable and really nice to see prizes for not just the fastest but
    also prizes for consistently taking part. There was also awards for members who
    have made a difference to others  by being
    supportive, encouraging and building self esteem and confidence through
    running, which I feel is a very important role for a club. I really feel that running clubs should be available to all levels of runners as they can offer so much

    • Rob_Barber 'Although often a largely solitary pursuit, running is surely just about the most inclusive sports there can be - no specialist equipment needed so costs are low - anyone, anytime, anywhere can do it - and from what I've seen, from first to last, the distance is the same for everyone and we are all regarded as equals' added 13th Oct 2014
