Someone recently asked me do I still run regularly? and is it with a running club? The answer to both those question are yes, I am trying to run three times a week at the moments as I am entered into the Silverstone Half Marathon again this year and my current half Marathon time of 1:55.04 I feel is beatable. I have also embraced a great organization/event called parkrun 5km race every Saturday morning in parks all over the UK, with my local being Cutslow Park Oxford. http://www.parkrun.org.uk/oxford/home
My running club is ‘OUCH’ (Oxford University Club Hurriers) based at Mansfield Road Club Oxford. Although we are part of the University club there are many member that don’t work in the University. The Club has various levels of runners and speed with a few social activities throne in.
If you want to know more about my goals for 2012 or the OUCH running club get in touch or go to the website http://www.atm.ox.ac.uk/running/
