In memory of our dear friend Marcus Gynn
Marcus passed away on Thursday 11th February 2016 at home surrounded by his loving family.
He was a key player in the Club, so encouraging and such an inspiration to all. He loved his running and was so much fun to be around. Thank you for being part of our Club.
We welcome people to come along to a training session before joining the Club. We have several ability groups on a training night but they are not suitable for complete beginners. We run a great beginners’ course every January to help people start on their running journey, or we can offer advice on how to get started, so hopefully in time you may be able to join us.
If you consider you are not a beginner, please indicate below how best sums up your running ability before attending a session. We will then be in touch to advise which session and what group might be the best one to try. We kindly ask that you do not turn up without completing this and having a conversation with us first.
