YTRRC Day at the Frog
From Jo: So today saw a great turn out for the Longleat 10k. This was the next club championship race so it was fantastic to see so many green & whites. Writing a race report is nearly as challenging as this race when you finish towards the back. All I can say is I think It would have been easier to heard the lions for a group photo than it was us!! Oh, & those hills are still as brutal as ever but we all smashed them. Great team spirit today from both our club runners & supporters. I can safely conclude - Lions 0 Yeovil Town RRC 1.
From Lindsay: Longleat 10k today, 3rd time I've done this race. It's hilly but Stephen Warren and I did it . My best time for a 10k has been just over 54 minutes, today I knocked 3 minutes off that so pretty pleased. It was great weather, well organised and surrounded by my wonderful running family and my family @saunders_abigail, @freyasaunders_11, @jake, @rabbitspawsw, @trisssamuel and @johenley.. Just missed my bestie who was going to join me but was poorly, next time @kelsaker. Nice ending to another nice weekend.
From Margarita: Longleat 10km today and involving some hills. A lovely run today, but those hills were definitely challenging. Lovely sunny day but a chilly breeze! A 2 lapper and a very good turn out from Yeovil Town. Lovely to run with Sharon Hardy.
Stonehenge Stomp 20k
From Claire: Today, Claire and I took on the Stonehenge Stomp 20k (13.1 miles!….) gorgeous views, lovely company, perfectly placed flags so we didn’t get lost…and to top it all…perfect weather…definitely one for next year.
From Jo: Thank you to all club members who gave up their time today to helped at today’s YTRRC volunteer takeover / pacer event (odd times). It is much appreciated by the club & Frogmary Green Farm parkrun.
From Adam: Newport Park Run - Tredegar NT House - lovely flat three lap course, good paths through woods and around lake.
From Jo: So I was thinking about a club trip to Bushy parkrun, the first ever UK Parkrun in the UK in October 2004. I was looking at either 6th or 13th April. Ideally going up Friday evening (Alison Griffiths has kindly recommended the below hotel). If I can gauge numbers & the best date then I will look to get something set in the calendar.
From Mark: Sunday Slow and Steady Run with a bit of exploration (without a map). We met Rachael and Kate part way round. Thanks Lynne for leading.
From Tim: Cavity Trays Saturday run on a beautiful sunny crisp morning into the countryside. Two groups lead by Sharon Hardy and Tim. Well done and thanks Gemma Murley, Chris Greengrow , Louise Ward, Steve, Anita Farquhar Rufus and Sharon. Over 10k achieved by both groups. Photo taken by Louise just before we got hot and sweaty on the climb up Stone Lane.
PUB RUN – GALHAMPTON – (25TH JANUARY 2024)
From Mark: It was nice to see visitors tonight Mark P and Kev B joining the fast group. In the not so fast group we had Paul, Louise, Kirsty, June, Elie, and myself. It was quite mild in terms of temperature, and at times there was a very fine drizzle, that could only be seen with the head torch.
Leaving the pub, we headed through the village southwards reaching North Cadbury. We stopped for photos outside the pub, and then continued eastwards to Woolston. Turning left we then ran towards Yarlington, but turned left again before reaching the village. In the darkness it looked as though Yarlington Mill farm had been knocked down, but I could be mistaken. Turning right we then headed back to Galhampton passing the manor house in the darkness.
After, a large group of us sat round one large table out the back for the meal. My meal was good. Thanks Phil for organising.
