Brutal Minley, and Pride 10k 2013 galleries now live

Race Galleries from Saturday 17th August now live !

On a day with a weather forecast of impending rain across the south-east, a slight smell of autumn in the air, and a bit of dampness on the early morning grass, for us it was a busy Saturdays racing, with the unusual exception that we had cleared the calendar of races on the Sunday. Made a strange change, Monday will be quieter.

So it was early starts and off to both the Brutal Minley (the dry but hilly one) and the 10th ever Pride 10k Run at Victoria Park - back to it's usual summer slot without the Olympics in the way like last year.

Gallery link below and a few piccies down below the race listings at the bottom of this update:

Thanks to everyone who recently said to me at races that they like the captions to the pictures, I try to keep it lighthearted - because well, that's what I'd want to read at 9am on a Monday morning in my inbox.

Next week is someone's 6th birthday (that should make some of you feel old), and then someone else's 40th birthday the week after that - so it's going to be a busy two weeks with a bankholiday in the middle of it all with Arundel, F3 Events and the Canterbury Half marathon to keep you fit and busy too, so see you there.

 Meanwhile at the Brutal Minley - the first totally dry course, but with some twisty-turny hills and a bridge for good measure...
Happy Birthday !

Not quite a mo-bot, more "we're doing a 10k, see - 10 fingers"

Hedge End runners put in a great club appearance en-mass

Correct technique for storming to the top of the hill at 7k

Don't be scared in the dark woods children. Actually I was.

Double thumbs and off the ground

Good to see that the Devil also support straps/ tapes-up her adductor's

Right, two birthdays to organise and presents to purchase, things to do and year end accounts... Don't forget to check out our facebook events page (created due to your requests!). 

Until next time,

p.s. anyone know a good double glazing company in Sussex that isn't going to try to charge me over £800 per window (8off, on average 1m x1m) - email me !
