Our members span a wide range of abilities and ages but share a common enthusiasm for running. Most prefer road and cross-country running, but some also participate in track events, while a few are drawn to ultramarathons on road and trail. We field both competitive and social teams in road relays every year and for many these are the highlight of the running calendar.
This group is open to existing members and potential members. Please post all your race results or use this as a discussion forum.
Thanks to everyone who came to Ivor Davies' 90th birthday celebration today. It was a very special occasion with 4 club co-founders there - Ed Macdonald, Dennis Coveney, Bob Cormack and of course, Ivor (who pointed out that he isn't 90 until tomorrow). Don Basham and Frank Stebner MC'd and many wonderful stories were shared. More photos will be posted soon.
So sorry to have to miss with Cheryl in hospital. Ivor was a mentor of mine and ran the first 20 miles of my first marathon. Wonderful coach and club mate. Thank you Margaret for all your work preparing the celebration for our Ivor. Jack (1 day ago)Margaret Buttner:

So sad! I remember Mr. Whiting from Cook Elementary school when he taught my brother. He also introduced many Track and Field events (discus, shot put, long jump, etc) to kids who wanted to participate after or before school. He will be missed! 2 (3 days ago)Beverli Barnes:

The Longest Day Road Race,2017. Group 1 pictures.
I tried doing an album last night, facebook crashed my posting, so I have decided to do picture postings a group at a time.
I am uploading pictures of the Kids race at the moment, on my own page. Here are a couple of examples. My post should be ready in about 1/2 hour.
Album is up...The future runners are featured. (6 days ago)
Congratulations to everyone who ran the Longest Day Road Race this evening. What a perfect night for the race. Judy Westacott placed 1st in her AC, Robert Haines placed 3rd in his AC and Justin Verbanic placed 9th in his AC which is very impressive as it included ages up to 16. Thanks to Geoff, Leo, Seann Sheriland and Frank Stebner for being there to cheer us on and Brigita for being part of the food team. The post race bbq was excellent.
Longest Day 10k.
This could be fun.
Good running to other members doing it. 🙂
