Throw Back Thursday – Our First outing to Corsham

Here we dig back into the archives again, and have a look at a nice little race from Corsham Running Club Andy trotted up to Represent the club and kindly offered this review of the event (Now rearranged to 27th September 2020)

Corsham 10K – 23 April 2017 – Event Review by Andy A


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. The website described the race as being gently undulating with a cheeky little hill at the 9k mark.

Throw Back Thursday – A look back through the scrap book #2

Salisbury 10

By Stuart Anderson

I took part in the 6th 7th and 8th Salisbury 10s in the late 80s and sadly events that took place before the internet are long forgotten. The route was similar to the event these past 25 years, except the start and finish was at Victoria Park.

When I first came to Salisbury in 1985 I was surprised there was no running track in the city! I managed to win in 1985 but I remember it being a small field of 300 not like the near thousand now.

Interesting to note… despite better kit and training support, winning times are not much different today. I have attached the journal write up from 1987.

All the best Stuart
