Running Fitness Magazine have published an article on our support for the Sue Ryder and Becky Stephens' fundraising efforts for this year's London Marathon.
The weather was relatively mild for this year's Dursley Dozen, but the lack of sun meant that ground conditions were hard with some very slippery sections, particularly on the downhill sections for the 13 Almost Athletes who took part.
The last cross country race of the season saw wintry weather for competitors. In addition to a strong turnout for the men, Becky Stephens was the sole lady representative from the club and ran well in spite of the challenging conditions finishing in 57th place.
After a chilly but bright start on the athletics track of Tilsley Park, the Abingdon marathon got underway with close to 800 competitors. A good representation of Almost Athletes were in attendance, including 6 members of the same running family putting sibling rivalry to the test.
