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.

I run faster when I’m angry!
So I never used to run for fun, no honestly I didn’t! Even the thought of it just seemed completely pointless.

We are a friendly and approachable running club based in Shrewton, Wiltshire, UK. We have a small but enthusiastic membership of adults of all abilities; from total beginners to marathon runners. We are soon to run our first Couch to 5k course to get the total beginners from sofa to a 5km Parkrun in 8 weeks.
We have applied for England Athletics affiliation and our ambition is to run our own event some time in the future.
Our current club runs are every Wednesday at 18:30 and Sunday at 09:00. During these runs we always run as a group. No one is left behind or pressurised to keep up. The group may stretch out but will always come together frequently and finish together.
Several members regularly do the Salisbury Parkrun and other local events.
