Copenhagen Half Marathon

So we decided to visit Copenhagen for a weekend of parkrun and a half marathon. On Saturday the 12th of September they ran at Amager Faelled parkrun in Copenhagen where they were warmly welcomed by Anne Petersen and her volunteer team. After the run many local runners were very keen to speak to the runners with a number of possible return visits promised. The following day, five of the travellers participated in the Copenhagen Half Marathon, together with about 22,000 others. A great weekend which also saw the celebration of Annette Sissons birthday, her 50th parkrun and Dan Evans’ 100th parkrun.

Target Zero 2015

So what turned out to me a rather wet Target Zero ended up with 9 brave soles competing to not be the fastest, not be the slowest, but to be the closest to their estimated time, and the results are below!

Summer League 2015

We have competed in the summer league series for 3 years now and last year we had some reasonably good turn outs and very nearly didn’t come last. These a good fun set of  five runs (5mile or 10Km) across London which are cheap to enter and blessed with cake and other comestibles. We have entered as a club again this year, and each club member turning up to run only pays £1 on the day. Dates for 2015 are I believe as below:

Dulwich Park 9.30am 31st May
Headstone Park 9.30am 14th June
Perivale 10am 5th July
Regents Park 9am 19th July
Battersea Park 9am 16th August.

The link below gets to the event page for the summer league which shows maps etc for the runs. Some stuff on the web site is out of date, in particular the date for the Battersea Park run which is 16th Aug, not 9th.

Parkrun 15/11

So another Saturday and another parkrun comes along, this time it was time for Jack to face off against Alan, in a fiercely contested 5K with Alan just managing to pull away with a time of 20:24 and Jack chasing hard to finish in a time of 20:43. This is his first parkrun for a while with minor injuries putting him out of last weeks Time Trial, I’m sure they’ll push hard over the winter months and continue to get closer to that sub-20 finish the both want at Black Park! In other news Linda also managed to take nearly 3 minutes off her time 2 weeks ago, getting ever closer to that PB that has eluded her for so long.

Plus we’d like to say that Fran and Andy’s puppy is super super cute, and thank them for bringing him along to support!

Piece by Mark Collins who attended the Beginners Session

Back in June of this year I had no desire to run, not even for a bus. As a keen photographer I thought it would be a good idea to go and watch the Color Run at Wembley Park. It was indeed a good idea, as I got some really good photos there...
