March 2019 – Chairmans Comments
March is for many of us about plodding on and getting some serious miles in. So many striders took part in several races over the month from the MK Festival of Running, cross country Harpenden and Welwyn Half, runs around Ashridge, Gade Valley training runs, Oakley 20 and two half marathons around London to name but a few, well done all who took part. Please make sure you add your times to the race sheet regardless of whether you achieved a PB or not we like to have a record of all your races and it makes our job easier choosing the winners for our annual awards. We have a separate sheet for parkruns too.
We have our biggest event of the year coming up in May – the annual beginners course. Last year was incredibly successful with over 100 people taking part. If you were a beginner last year please come along and help us with the course – it would be great for the 2019 cohort to hear some of your stories and how far you have come in your running.
Enjoy the lighter evenings and running across the fields – please remember to stay seen and where possible always run in a group.
