The Seaford Striders Mince Pie 10mile 2018 and entries into 2019


All ready for the 24th - Santa gets in a bit of last minute cardio

So that's a wrap ! Christmas 2018 is the next thing on our calendar, and whilst there is a handful of Santa runs around the place, your best-bet for a pre-christmas turn out is a local Parkrun (or not very local if you fancy a bit of "tourism" as they call it).

The next race out for us is the Brutal Longmoor, which is possibly the best of the Brutals - if only to work off the Christmas pudding a few days later, and then there's the classic Serpentine New Years Day 10k - which will blow away your hangover if nothing else works !

Otherwise we're into 2019 planning - if you're London based then the Adidas races are a favourite 10k with free race downloads https://sspimg.com/cityruns2019

If you're putting together your 2018 achievements and trying to work out what to do and aim for in 2019, then why not put it down on record somewhere like Runpage.com and make sure all your medals, times and achievement memories are in one easy place to keep and share - and then plan from there, or take it to your coach and show them what's what and ask what's next ?

I'm going to try to find all the camera  kit from the far reaches of the globe that it all get spread to, get things serviced, cleaned, organised, tested and calibrated (yes, lenses need to be calibrated to their camera bodies so they focus super accurately), and give the office a bit of a tidy up. But first, editing the school nativity play videos...

In the meantime, here's the table of events, galleries and then some photos

It's pudding time

Good to see the Vegan Runners out after their strong showing at the Brighton 10k

Top superman work

that's not a pair of brussel sprouts 

The Sean Connery fancy dress costume for christmas worked a treat

When Runners get Triathlon thoughts

the leggings have it

sparkly antlers in the sunshine

she skipped the entire route this happy

mince pie hunger cut in with 1km to go

First time for an offroad 10k, hope the meter wasn't on

What's the collective noun for a group of Debbies ?

Special mention to James Baker - took 1:20 off his own 7 year old course record to drop it to 55:14. I think I can do that on the flat, on a bike ?

And a very happy Christmas to you too !!
So that's it for this year's gallery, I hope you've enjoyed my incredibly insightful captions throughout the year, and hopefully I've not caused you to spit your tea out over your keyboard.. but then again what is the real measure of success here ? (ok, it's people buying or downloading their photos...)

If you're a race organiser, even if you're one we cover your race regularly - please get in contact with us to confirm 2019's race because it's already getting more than half booked up, and we don't like to decline races (but we do!).

so, unless something comes to mind that I need to tell you urgently - have a Happy Christmas, and a great New Year !

Until next time
Anthony
