Weekly News

A big congratulations to October’s member of the month, Stef Louvain Pasco. Stef completed the Green Man ultra last month, which is impressive enough in itself. However, along the way she inspired others to give it a go to,  as well as organising an inclusive training run of the route. Stef’s running has significantly improved over the last year. Always present at training, friendly and sociable to other club members and new starters alike.  

Thursday efforts session will be a 5 x Medium to Short Ramp Down.  This will involve 5 sets, comprising 90/60/30 second efforts with 30 seconds recovery in-between (and 1 minute recovery between sets).

The Nightingale Nightmare is only a few weeks away now, so not long to organise your Halloween costume. For some ideas see link below and spot the Westbury Harriers in hideous disguise! https://www.flickr.com/photos/southvillerunningclub/albums/72157676222785095

Just a reminder that all runners taking part in the Thursday efforts sessions now need to sign in on arrival.  This also applies to the Monday sessions, where you have to sign in on return. If your membership is not up to date please renew or join the club.

We are still looking for a co-ordinator to manage the club kit. It will not require too much time, just a case of placing orders and keeping track of stock.
