Remember pacers are for keeping pace – it is up to each runner to know the route! If you find you are way ahead or behind then hopefully our system of different pace groups will help this. Do not worry – if you try moving up a group but it is too much there will be another along to pick you up soon!! If we have enough pacers we will have two for the larger groups but this may not always be possible. You don’t have to be a run leader to help out with pacing so if you would like to give it a go please let us know!

Its been hard to establish a running routine since I started my job as a chef last November. People say it can be done you just have to work your life around it and find what’s best for you, but when you start work at 10am and get home at 11:30pm then do the same […]
I used to think that because I run and burn loads of calories I could eat/drink exactly what I want which is wrong as food and drink are your fuel to run, after all I am not fat, but my problem is I don’t eat enough and when I loose weight I look gaunt which is […]
I have been thinking about writing my own blog for a while now, just never got round to it. I have in the last 6 months got myself a job working as a Senior Chef de Partie at a olde style Inn, in a village just outside Cambridge. Theredlionwhittlesfordbridge A place with a growing reputation […]
