In case of emergency…

At a recent club evening, one of our members – a young, apparently healthy, regular runner – collapsed and almost died. Thanks to the valiant efforts of several club members and the quick arrival of an ambulance, he’s thankfully making a speedy recovery but this shocking...

Annual club photo

In time-honoured tradition, club members assembled before the various races at the Redcar Running Festival for the annual club photo. After some wrangling, the motley crew lined up for a quick photo before heading off to warm up, marshal or just cheer on the other runners. Feel...

EA Club Run coaching

So, last week was the first of the three England Athletics #ClubRun coaching sessions by Daz Reevell and we had a fantastic turn-out, beautiful weather and a good laugh. We also suffered mightily. It was far too hot for anything more strenuous than a gentle jog and we attracted...

Now you see me…

Ah, autumn – Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, falling leaves and fluorescent yellow. Yep, it’s time to pack away the short shorts and dig out the high-vis! We encourage all our members to start wearing reflective/high-vis running clothing at this time of year – we...

Say “Cheese!”

Yes, it’s that time of year again – time for the Redcar Half Marathon and for our annual Club photo! Could any members that wish to be part of the photo meet at the Cricket Club in their club colours (vest or hoodie) for 9.15am. We’ll attempt to wrangle you all into...

Injury – how to avoid the inevitable

You’ve probably been told by well-meaning (or just mean) friends and relatives that running is bad for your knees, hamstrings, ankles, joints, ligaments and just about everything else. Science has proven that all to be utter bunk, but one thing the naysayers may just have...

Hardmoors Rosedale Half Marathon

I was a little nervous ahead of this race as I’ve only ever attempted two, very short Hardmoors runs before and one of those was horrendous (many of our club members are still suffering flashbacks and Tracy is still warming herself up!) Fresh from a non-too-restful night in...
We're running up that road – with no problems

You know you’re a runner when…

How do you know when you’ve become a runner? Well, in all honesty, it probably isn’t after completing your first run/walk session and collapsing on the sofa swearing that you’ll never do that again (we’ve all been there, it gets easier!) But once...
Run fast for your mother, fast for your father…

New club website

Here it is! Our shiny new site…  at last. (I can hear the “It took long enough!” muttering you know.) Apologies for the delay but you can now blame, not just me, but also Paul and Phil for the inane drivel that appears on here. If anyone else would like to write up...

Why do I do this?

I didn’t set out to become a runner. It was never an ambition or dream I had as a kid. I can’t say for sure but I’d guess most people are the same… They kind of fall into running, discover that they like it (for whatever reason) and keep on doing it until – ta...
