The Next Training Session is the 19th June  -  Away Run - Great Shefford  

Led by Simon

Meet at The Swan pub in Great Shefford 7.15pm Warm Up starts 7.30pm

If you could park in the car park away from the entrance (near the wooden bus shelter) that would be appreciated.

Drinks after. There is also food available until 9pm, e.g.

Soup £5

Spring rolls £6

Burgers, fish & chips: £12-£13

Chips or wedges  £3
Curry £12
Vegetarian dishes also.
The Swan is in the centre of Great Shefford which is about 15 mins drive from Hungerford, beyond the M4 junction. We'll be running towards East Garston, back through Great Shefford and then up a little way beyond that village before returning. So potential for a cut-off at 4.5 mile

Training Sessions are subject to last minute changes due to the weather and any other unforeseen circumstances

John O Gaunt student wins Harey 8 poster competition!


We would like to say a huge well done to Lucy Hammond, a year 8 student at John O Gaunt School, for winning the competition for redesigning the Harey 8 poster for 2018! The annual race, organised by the Hungerford Hares running club has a new date this year and the race director thought this would be a great opportunity to have a new poster and involve the local secondary school in the process. Lucy’s winning design is fantastic, she really rose to the challenge adding incredible detail and the artwork is so bright, imaginative with a positive impact. She was presented with her winning prize of a £50 amazon voucher and a framed copy of her poster at her end of term assembly. The prize was kindly donated by one of the race committee members work organisation. We are looking forward to sharing her winning design through our publicity for the event this year. Well done Lucy!
