You need to join a running club can I suggest the best club in Britain
You need to join a running club can I suggest the best club in Britain ..
...Poole AC that is then Goldbeetle? (Sorry, been drummed into me by my Dad for too many years )
best in UK?
Poole Runners .....not my words.
Heres your answer
why dont you run to littledown, down the Stourvalley way takes you through Lytchett?...you do still live in Lytchett?
I'm doing the southern 6 stage relay the day before this, so not sure about racing twice in 2 days 3 weeks out from a marathon.
Goldbeetle - has the greatest club in the universe got a strong team out for the southerns?
Goldbeetle - followed your link and was interested to read the following:-
Club nights are always well attended and at most local road races the club turns out 40 to 50 runners -
I just did a quick check on the Dorset Road Race League results for this year - I guess they account for many `local road races' and found the following representation from Poole Runners...
Broadstone Quarter - 38Milborne 10 - 28Lytchett 10 - 45Mad March Hare 20 - 15Bournemouth Quarter - 27Bournemouth HM - 18Poole 10k - 20Portland 10 - 18Sturminster HM - 27
Granted that you organise 2 of the above races, 1 race with a representation over 40 is not `40 to 50'. Can you explain the discrepancy?
a little poetic licence perhaps
perhaps it should have read can turn out 40-50, still its not a bad turn out considering
Indeed - maybe the RW staff edited the word out
Is Willard running this one? I heard a rumour that he had picked up an injury and had to miss the Nottingham HM.
I know GB....just a little friendly ribbing
My club Herne Hill Harriers are the bestest in my book....because
1. Enter loads of races, especially cross countries
2. Lots of social drinking!!
Kelly. I will be number 112.
As for club: I belong to Dorset Doddlers.
If not the best then probably the cheapest !
I'll look out for you GDB.
Great to meet you. See you again sometime!
Good race this one apart from the fact the marshals could have been a little more verbal on occasions given the amount of twists and turns. I was confused twice and my wife was impeded by a marshal on a blind bend. Just minor gripes within an overall good organised raced. Nice facilities at the race venue too.
Pleased that the local club I joined managed to get 2nd and 3rd place overall prizes, 1st 2 vet men prizes, the men's team prize as well as the 1st vet female prize. Not bad when we were up against the UK's No1 running club...
They must have been on a high after being the only Dorset club to put out a team at the senior 6 stage southern relay the day before...

Yes hopefully see you at a race soon. Next time I won't have to rush off. I had to go to the pub to celebrate my birthday.
