The Cannock Chase Trail ‘Tough Mudder’ 10km, Silverstone 10km, and Manchester Half were amongst the weekend running plans for Essington Harriers, along with Parkrun of course!
The past few weekends have seen Essington Harriers heading off to races and runs of various distances and challenges, so here’s a roundup of some of the races we’ve been getting involved with.
The Essington Harriers took part in RAF Cosford’s Spitfire 10k
The Essington Harriers Running Club ‘Couch To Awesomeness’ course is back this September.
We can help you progress from 0 to 5km roady for your first non-stop Parkrun.
Come and join us today, and release your inner Awesomeness 🦅
It was so good to once again remind people #DFYBC. With the culmination of the Couch to Awesomeness group celebrating with their first 5k event, the Essington Harriers were out in force at Chasewater Parkrun this weekend.
Our very own Men’s Captain, Chris Davis, took on the Ironman 140.6 Bolton event, with a 3.9km swim, 180.2km bike ride and a 42.2km run. This is the ultimate endurance and fitness event and Chris came out of it still smiling, what a hero 💪🦅
Another great turnout from the Essington Harriers and some great times put in by all the runners in quite warm conditions. Special shoutout to Lucy and Belinda who were doing their first 10k races
The return to running weekend kicked off with the Birmingham Black Country Half Marathon, which is fitting as the last event before lockdown was the Stafford Half Marathon.
With the government about to relax some more of the restrictions in place to prevent the spread of COVID19, the committee have decided to relax the ‘rule of six’ that we have been sticking to with our running groups.
