LATEST NEWS:

What a lovely Sunday to get out for a run: off to Trinity Stud, then round to Anvilles and back via Sanham Green: thanks to Andy for leading us!

 

       
Great Sunday run!

 


Article in Saturday's i Paper: food for thought!!

 

"New threat to hares" proclaimed the Newbury Weekly News last week. But don't panic, it was not about us. It was about a worrying disease found locally among our four-footed namesakes......

Hardy Hares!
Yes, it was cold; yes it was drizzly; yes it was NOT NICE! But that didn't stop a group of 7 Hardy Hares from speeding round the Station Road car park on Tuesday for a session of reps......

 
The Hardy Hares - it wasn't so bad after all!

............. and Brownie points for Andy, who, even though he was away in Canada, sent a photo to show he did a comparable session:


Andy in Canada
 "Here is photographic evidence of me out for my 4x0.8mile intervals in Vancouver. The facial expression is a combination of "this is hard work after 4 days skiing" and "it's beautiful over here".

Now that Andy is back, he is now focused on his build-up for the London Marathon (remember he won the Club place). He has committed himself to reporting on his training progress in bulletins over the next 10 weeks; GO ANDY! Watch this space........

 

Hares Committee:
The committee met on 21st January. As always this group aims to develop our running club with the best interests of Hares at heart. Among items discussed was the club kit. Responding to a recent survey by Caroline, we are planning to improve the T-shirts and vests in time for the lighter evenings in April. Watch this space!
