It is free and open to all by registering at we-run.org.uk. There are pacers with groups of 8-9, 9-10, 10-11 and 11-12 minute miles. This is not an HRC event, but was organised by our Emma and lots of HRC members took part in the first one. Next one is 4th May.

Geoff’s Track Marathon
More amazing stuff from Geoff! On 11th March, Geoff Oliver competed in the Barry Marathon Track Race consisting 105 laps of a 400m track. Our 84 year old club president completed the race in a time of 4:55:37. With the spring marathon season right on us, good luck to everyone in the club doing a marathon or big race in the next few weeks, all that hard training over the winter will pay off!
