With this weekend's forest league event having been cancelled, newly installed club president Roger Craddock has an alternative competition for club members this weekend.

Prizes will be awarded for the top senior and top junior.

There's just a couple of catches...

Dear QO member,

Remember the QOFL1 has been postponed from next Sunday to October 20 at Culm Davy.

President Roger

President Roger

Here is a challenge!

I am recovering from a hip operation and would like to try a ‘power walk’ on the Longrun Meadow Parkrun course next Saturday at 9.00am.

How about starting the ‘O’ season with a 5km run against the clock?



Just two conditions:

  • Your time as recorded by Parkrun will be adjusted by the usual BOF age factor handicap
  • You must wear a QO shirt

The winner will be awarded a bottle of red wine!

Alasdair (our new Chair) is offering another challenge to the Juniors (under 14?) on Sunday at 09.00.

The winner will awarded a box of chocolates!

Send me an e-mail if you are interested in either of these.

- Roger Craddock

  • Senior Parkruns are on Saturday and the junior Parkrun is on Sunday
