Massive congraultaions to everyone for a huge effort last weekend: George was 4th in the Snowdon marathon – which was an epic mountain trail race, blessed with beautiful weather and and jaw-dropping scenery. Jon H also conquered the marathon and Rosie and Emma completed the half (which was, at 15miles.. the longest ‘half’ I’ve ever done!). The following day Andy Goff set a new trihards record at the Oxford half – well done Andy for an amazing time of 1 hour 37 mins and 33 seconds! And well done Henry Purcell who, in the Grove Rugby Festival, brought his under 10 side home undefeated – 24 tries to 4!
The Eynsham junior 1 mile fun run, on the 25th November, is open for entries now. To enter download an entry form from:
The Oxford Santa Sprint is a Tirhard must – This year on Sunday 9th December:
The South Devon Trail run is also now open for entries. This is a fabulous off road run on the Devon Coastal path that takes in some amazing scenery. There is a 10k, half marathon, marathon and ultra marathon option – it would be great to take a team down for 2019 (the race is the 2nd February). I certainly will be entering the half marathon for next year:
