STUBBINGTON 10K 13 January 2019
All three races will top out well in advance. For example 443/800 places were filled for the Victory 5 24/09/2018.

Calling all road runners.Many members may be unaware that there are training facilities available at the University grounds Wide Lane opposite Southampton Parkway station.The group meets on Tuesdays usually to run various sessions on the grass playing fields and on Thursdays for a road run both at 6.30PM . The sessions can be found on the web site under Training and are updated monthly. Wide Lane offers excellent changing and showers and caters for predominately road runners who can run at 6 to 8 minute miles although there is some latitude. Without wishing to offend my colleagues the average age is somewhat higher than in other training groups and on a Tuesday there is the option of re hydrating at the Cricketers Arms. Everyone is really welcome so why not give it a try.
