Santa came to Sawtry

Santa came to Sawtry

Every year Huntingdon Round table bring Santa to Sawtry but this year his round was cancelled due to a lack of volunteers. Oh no! We couldn’t have that as the children (of all ages) would be disappointed and so we stepped up to offer a […]

Another parkrun weekend, another PB

This week’s parkrun PB goes to Meg with an impressive finish time of 23.53 making her our fastest lady at the 5k distance.

Congratulations to Meg who is now looking to improve again and get sub 23.30.

Meg’s dog looks pretty impressed too!

 

Santa Fun Run

Santa Fun Run

A big group of us headed off to Stamford for the Round Table Santa Run. This was a 5k that you could run or walk and there was about 1200 people who did just that. Buggies & dogs included. It was fun even if finding […]

Another PB & a Graduation

Another PB & a Graduation

This time the PB belonged to Helen J who knocked 6 minutes off her previous parkrun finishing in 33.46 – what a result! Not to be outdone, 12 year old daughter Isabel ran her first parkrun after joining our None To Run programme in September […]

More parkrun PBs

More parkrun PBs

This week saw 2 more PBs with Lizzie completing Huntingdon parkrun in 28.11. Clearly though a PB was not enough to satisfy Lizzie as she ran the 10 or so miles back home to Sawtry with mum Andrea who is the club’s representative in the 2019 London Marathon.

The second PB went to Tara who was running at Rutland Water parkrun and came home in 31.33. She credited her success to her fellow Canadians – the geese who were also flying round the course!

Another weekend with a PB

Another weekend with a PB

It was a PB for Meg who was home for the weekend from uni and running at Peterborough parkrun. Meg knocked almost 2 minutes off her previous best and finished in an impressive 24.13. Ryan was also at parkrun finishing in 18th position in 19.02.

On Sunday we had runners over at the Breckland Forrest 10k.  Lizzie, Andrea and Tara got their trail shoes on and had an amazing run through the forrest in bright sunshine.

Back at the ranch, our latest None To Run cohort started week 9 which saw them jump from 2 min run segments to 5 mins. Despite their fears, every single runner achieved all the 5 minutes segments with some running 10 mins for their 4th segment. Those 8 foundation weeks really paid off and they are now well on their way to their graduation parkrun on 22 December.

Peterborough 10 Mile

Peterborough 10 Mile

Another good turn out from Sawtry Walk To Run, this time at Living Sport’s inaugural Peterborough 10 miler. As no-one has yet run may 10 milers, this was a PB for pretty much everyone at this distance. Jon was first to finish for Sawtry Walk […]
