Hello and Happy Spring time to all Oh Ladies!

I hope you are all keeping well and enjoying the spring warmth, sunshine and lighter evenings!  This is the time of year to think about sunscreen, shorts, hats and pre-hydration.  Make sure you drink plenty of water the days before you run as well as after.

Welcome to our new members who will soon have completed their New to/back to Running course with Denise and Lisa, their graduation parkrun will be at Ellenbrook Fields on April 22nd – usual time of 9 am start, 8:45 meet. It will be great to have plenty of support there for them and of course its the day before London Marathon – so an incredibly exciting weekend of running!

The next New to/Back to running group will start on June 7th so please do share with friends and family who may be interested. The course is limited to 10 so get in quick!

Of course Brighton Marathon is this Sunday and we wish all our runners the very best of luck over the 26.2 miles!  remember the marathon itself is fun, you’ve already done all the hard work!

The summer running schedule will start the first week of May so keep an eye for changes to leader running sessions and times.  We plan to take advantage of the lighter evenings and the post marathon shorter runs.  Up until the new schedule starts in May please keep an eye on social media or ask your leader to confirm runs as its the school holidays and marathon season.

Subs are soon due for existing members, which will remain at £27 for the year with £15 going to UKAthletics. There is a new online tool being set up to make payment easier for you and our volunteers – details to follow in a dedicated membership renewal email towards the end of April.
