Who Kelly Mepham


There are some biting creatures hiding at Castle Manor – as it gets further into summer bug spray would be a good idea!!


When: Tuesday 7:30pm
What: Community running group – See Yusuf’s post


When: Thursday 7:00-7:30pm

Where: Fox and Hounds, Steeple Bumpstead

Who: Everyone!!

What: Steeple Bumpstead Trail/Pub run

6.2miles with a 4 mile cut off

This is a Thursday evening club run with a difference, navigate yourselves through the lovely Essex countryside and have a practise at the steeple Bumpstead 10k route (cut off for those that want it).

Get some friends together and arrive at the Fox & Hounds anytime between 7 & 7:30pm and pick up written directions from Stephen Miller and off you go!!

See Karen Martin‘s post for more info and to find out who else is going.

Don’t forget some pocket money for a well earned drink when you get back.

Please make sure you have a mobile phone in your group and you let people know you have arrived back.

Things to consider when we are out further a field:
Bring water if it is hot! There is less chance of getting hold of some in the middle of a field than in town!
Trail shoes may be useful especially if it has been raining – that happens now and again in England! 🙄😫 But they are not essential – it’s up to you
Please try to wear bright/hi-viz clothing
Pacers/leaders please carry a mobile phone in case of any problems
Pacers/leaders please try to stick to pace but all runners need to be aware this can be more variable off road!

Any questions please let us know. This isn’t hard-core off roading so if you haven’t done a summer route before please don’t worry – come along and enjoy Thursday runs!


Is 6:30 or 7pm too late for you to run?

You may also want to consider the small but perfectly formed 6:00pm group led by Shirley Fowler – another of our qualified coaches. They meet at the Leisure Centre each week.

The 6pm group follow this plan each session:
run between 8-11 min miles, Tuesday we do 3-4 miles ( and incorporate training in the run e.g hills or speed) Thursday is a little faster run with less stops 5-7 miles and off road in summer. All abilities are welcome to come give us a go.
