Make sure you enter, this is one of the most fun events of the year in Reading!


The most beautiful season for running outside is about to begin, get out an enjoy it!


Shoot for the moon because if you miss you will hit a star! Running isn't easy, it's hardwork. Set yourself goals and go after them. Aim high believe in yourself and your training. If you don't succeed then keep on trying, don't give up on something because it gets tough, if it was easy would you feel like you had accomplished so much? But also remember where you have come from, some times we can forget injuries and past times that are now well behind us.


Watch out its going to be the warmest September day for 50 years! Enjoy it get out and exercise as it will be raining and windy soon!!! Make sure you stay hydrated. As soon as you are thirsty you are 10% dehydrated already, sip little and often through the day!

•The programme will be broken down to show every single day in the build up.

•You will receive weekly contact that will make sure you are following your programme. How easy is it to miss a run? or a training session? how about when you know you will be asked how your weeks training has gone at the end of the week?

•Weekly analysis of your training will be done via Strava, Garmin connect or TomTom My sports. We willl be there to make sure the training is getting done.

Retesting stored samples is a strong deterrent. I believe no cheat should retire & think they got away with it. 10 years is not long enough.

[05/17/16]   2 hard races in a week, really pleased with them both. 4th place in 79 minutes at the #bracknellhalfmarathon and 5th place at #royalberkshire10k a best time for 14 years running 35.05 minutes. Sometimes results come quickly often it's a slow long journey. Always set yourself goals and then break them down to small victories. #commitbelieveachieve

[05/13/16]   'I am the masters of my fate '. Seriously inspired by the Invictus games and the amazing sporting achievements this week. We can all take inspiration from the amazing service men and women and their strength of character. #Iam Invictus Games #togetherinsport

[05/07/16]   #Commit-believe-achieve, If you are out racing tomorrow have a great run! Hydrate well tonight as well as in the morning. I know lots of you are getting ready for #woodley10k or the #Bracknellhalfmarathon which is where I shall be in the morning. Be brave and believe in your training, and those goals you set will be achieved!
