Cool evening with Rick, Paul, John Mac, Gordon and John Mason who introduced Jackie to the club. Some ran to the top while other enjoyed the flatter routes. Bill, Lesley, Fiona and Jack were busy with the C25K course at Burnett Park which is being very well attended by at least 20 runners.
After a stormy afternoon of rain, wind, hail and snow the evening actually turned out clear, still and sunny as the perfect backdrop to our monthly Castle Run. We were joined today by three runners new to club. A big Banchory welcome to Colin, Lesley and Sarah.
Bill, Lesley and Fiona were busy across at Burnett Park delivering the C25K starter course, but we still had runners John Mac, Jack, Gordon, Paul, Irene, Rachel. Seb and Rick too.
Jack and Rachel enjoyed the 8km route. Everybody else must be saving themselves for races this weekend! Couch to 5k course continues to be well attended.
Pleasant run in the forest with Jan, Wendy, Jack, Irene, Elsbeth, Rick, Paul. Lesley Cheyne and Helen. Fiona joined Bill at Burnett Park with the “Couch to 5k” training initiative.
Mark Mosgrove and Rick did Scolty, whilst Jack, Sandy, Gill and John Mason enjoyed our 8km route.
Bill and Lesley conducted the training across at Burnett Park for the “Couch to 5k” initiative. This was hugely successful with over 20 starters.
Back at the Guide Hut Paul and Fiona ran to the top and Jack, Mark Crawford, Mark Mosgrove, Rick, Gordon, Helen and Gill ran the 8k.
A lovely sunny evening for it with Bill, Jack, Mark C, Mark M, Rick, Gordon, Paul, John Mac, Rachel and Lesley. All went to the top of Scolty bar Lesley, who is training for a race on the weekend, so she did the 8k flat route.
Bill introduced a new style of run tonight where we ran out for 20 minutes, turned around and ran back the same way. This was great in that the group all finished within a few minutes of each other, but necessarily used the out-and-back tactic, which could, I suppose, be a bit boring if we did it all the time. Never-the-less, it was a smashing afternoon for a run and enjoyed by Stan, Mark C, Jack, Gordon, Rick, Chris, Bill, Wendy, Rachel, young Lesley, Lesley our leader and Fiona too.
First run of the season back in Scolty Woodlands tonight with Fiona, Jack, Mark M, Mark C, Bill, Gordon, John Mac, John Mason and Gill. We all did the 8km route and what a pleasure it was.
Lively turnout for the Castle Run with Wendy, Helen, young Lesley, Fiona, Lynsey, Seb, Elsbeth, Rachel, Mark C, Mark M, Gordon and Jack. Some went the normal way round while other ran in reverse. (anticlockwise – not backwards, silly!)
