#IAmTeamGB saw the biggest ever sports day this weekend just gone. Bumper numbers of parkrunners, Olympians, free sporting activities and a big celebration of the three hundred thousand or so Gold medals we won at Rio 2016. Any excuse for the nation to have a knees up and a shindig. Of the 414 parkrunners at Brueton 26 were attached to our club. A grand old turn out.Click to Read More

Apologies for the brevity of this post. I'm eating ice cream in the garden in Devon. #firstworldproblems. Suffering!
Great running by the team. Make sure you have signed up for the Road Relays and the last couple of WRRL races.

Torbay Royal Regatta 10k
Darren John was 27th in the Torbay 10k. Thinking his recent injuries were behind him he ran 41:19. He then spent three to four hours in Torbay Hospital A&E on Monday morning getting an X-ray to ensure his right hip wasn't fractured (to go with the left one he broke three years ago). What a plonker. Thankfully X-rays show no fractures. A dose of co-codamol and a week of sitting in the beach hut in the sun with ice cream have been prescribed. As a result he has a free place for anyone who wants to do Kenilworth Half on Sun Sept 4th. Email email@example.com if you want the place.Click to Read More
Midland Counties Road Relays
Saturday 24th September 2016
The Autumn is now coming and with it brings the Road Relays at Sutton Park. For those who haven't done these before there are teams for men running 5.848km and women running 4.315km. They are run in relay with runners grouped according to ability. This means the faster runners will be together, but also means any ability can join in and is a great team event. Knowing your effort helps the group certainly makes you push that bit harder!!
As always, K&D have a great team atmosphere and everyones efforts are rewarded! We need to enter names for the race by 4th September so please let Kathy or Simon know if you would like to join in ASAP.
More information is available at:

The Eden Hall Spa Newark Half Marathon 2016 takes almost as long to say as it takes a certain Mr. C. Sharp to run it.
Showing good form over the thirteen miles Chris clocked 1:13:14 for fourth place overall in the race. A cracking performance. He averaged 5:35 min/miles.
Only just behind Chris was Simon Bentley in 1:16:04 (chip time). Simon finished 10th overall to cement two top-ten finishes for K&D athletes.
Flick Sharp's 1:36:48 was a huge improvement on her previous PB of 1:53:40. Just the seventeen minutes! A great summer of running showing in her massive new personal best and 16th place finish in the ladies competition.
Congrats to the three for putting on such a strong green and gold display in Newark.
