NEW: Photos & Day 2 report
Permanent course, temporary closure
For anyone thinking of venturing up there, due to forestry work commencing week beginning 7 October the majority of the Combe Hill Wood permanent course will be closed. The White course will still be available though.
A warm welcome to Ollie Rant, who joins us having sampled several JOG training sessions this season and last.
Membership secretary Judy Craddock said "It's great to have Ollie on board, our first M21 for a long time."
London City Race
Congratulations to Andrew Page for a strong performance in the capital, where he finished third, just 90s behind the winner in the M16- category. Like in 2017, the action centred around the striking Barbican Centre.
Check out who's been giving themselves a sneaky headstart before the season gets going! Here is your round up of results and events for September to date, as some of the keenest get back to action after only the shortest of summer breaks.
Several PB's at Parkrun
Was it the lure of the wine that did it? About 10 turned up for our President's Challenge, with several registering PB's (personal bests). All the more amazing when you consider our contestants between them had hundreds of Parkruns under their belts.
