  • I think everyone is updating the original thread which is the only reason this one is so quiet.

  • Hi,

    I may be a little late to the party with this comment, apologies if its already been mentioned.

    There is a national running group called ParkRun.

    www . parkrun . org . uk/

    It wont let me post the proper link so just take the spaces out.

    It is a great organisation and a wonderful way to get into running and keep the motivation going. They meet in venues, mainly parks obviously, across the country every Saturday at 9am to run a set course of 5k, which is timed. Best of all its FREE!!!

    All you have to do is register on the website and print off your personal barcode to get your time for the event.

    My local run is normally around 120+ people, who offer advise, support and motivation both on the course and after.

    I would highly recommend looking into it for any new runners, or those who are one step down from Mo Farah.
