Three of K&D's finest, Chris Sharp, Simon Bentley and Torsten Roesler took part in the fast and flat Berlin Marathon this weekend. No idea what is happening here but just look at the fear in Chris' eyes...
Simon looks worryingly at ease in the German neck massage dungeon.
Baljit Chohan also appeared in Germany according to the official results.
Chris Sharp ran 2:38:53
Torsten Roesler ran 2:57:07
Baljit Chohan 3:17:18
Simon Bentley hit 30k in 2:04 however did not finish; we hope he was taking the sensible option and it isn't anything too painful. Get a couple of early Oktoberfest beers down you captain, we'll call them medicinal.
Here is Torsten introducing the guys to his big brother.
Ben Nevis Ultra
Continuing our recent trend of the K&D members going a bit wild is news of Phil Elwell doing the Ben Nevis Ultra - 40 miles round Ben Nevis in 7:39 ; 2nd year he has done this race. Because 40 miles isn't hard enough, you might as well throw a mountain in there too.Click to Read More
Our Ladies team were a very impressive 44th overall. Their splits were:

Summer's Over. Get back in your winter clothes you hippies.
It is that time of year again when our Club runs begin to finish in the dark.
Please remember you must wear bright, preferably flourescent tops.
Anyone not following this notice runs the risk of a) being hit by a car that cannot see you in the dark or b) being made to wear one of our super-stinky, rarely washed high viz vests as punishment. Whichever option is worse.
No pretending to be a ninja in all black clothing please. You only put yourself and other teammates in a needlessly dangerous position.Click to Read More
