Whilst many of the club were celebrating their achievements from the previous days 5k by over-indulging at breakfast, I was heading to Corsham as the club’s lone representative in the St George’s Day 10k. Continue reading “Corsham 10K – 23 April 2017 – Event Review by Andy A”
After eager anticipation Nick, Rich and Jerry headed off to the Salisbury 10 mile Race. It really could not have been a better Spring day; warm and sunny but Nick did make an observation that it might be just a bit too warm… You really cannot please everyone!

Trowbridge v Calne showdown
Nick, Rich, Caroline, Helen and Andy travelled north to Calne for the first 10k in British Summer Time for 2017. The conversation in the car centred largely on comparing the relative merits of Trowbridge and Calne. With professional input from one of the team, the general view was that Calne just shaded it, although to be fair this may be because we hadn’t seen the absolute best of Trowbridge.

As a club we decided to join the Wiltshire Road Race League, you know, just for laughs. This, coincidentally, was the first event in that league for 2017. We managed to get a car-load of runners: Rich, Fran, Nick and Karen to enter.

It was with a little nervousness that I approached this race, not so much because of the run itself, but mainly because it was over 3 decades since I’d done an organized run and I wasn’t really sure what to expect. On paper the race itself looked like an easy re-introduction. Following the route of the old Somerset and Dorset Railway, it headed out of Bath through 2 former railway tunnels for 5k, before turning and re-tracing its steps for the return journey. Apart from being a bit different, being an ex-railway line meant it was flat…wonderful. Continue reading “Event Review: Bath Two Tunnels 10k, Feb 26th 2017, by Andy A”
