Ashton Court parkrun

Bristol, Saturday, November 1, 2014

Kirsty Steed

A trip down memory lane in Bristol (I spent six years there as a student) led us to Ashton Court on what the run director quite aptly named “the sunniest November parkrun ever”. It was blazing sunshine and 18 degrees according to the car temperature gauge – bonkers! The setting couldn’t have been nicer either, … Continue reading Ashton Court parkrun

Kirsty Anderson

It was a small but select band of Striders who gathered for the Guisborough Moors Fell race, with many others electing to either run or support at the London Marathon, or recovering from theatrical endeavours. It was a glorious day for running wherever you were though, spring has definitely sprung and about time too. Registration … Continue reading Guisborough Moors

This summer with … Continue reading City of Durham Duathlon

Cambridge Half Marathon

Kirsty Anderson

This race was originally intended as a family get-together but due to drop-outs from my sister-in-law (injured foot) and my two sisters (1. just had a baby and 2. scared that she would get beaten by me) it was just me, Jon and my little brother on the start-line for the Cambridge Half. The remainder … Continue reading Cambridge Half Marathon

Eastbourne parkrun

Saturday, December 28, 2013

Kirsty Anderson

Jon’s turn for relative visiting saw us heading north via Eastbourne after Christmas and never one to miss either a parkrun or a parkrun tourism opportunity we decided to give Eastbourne parkrun a go after a very nice evening spent with his Aunt and Uncle. It’s a reasonably small parkrun with only around 100 regulars … Continue reading Eastbourne parkrun
