0-5k Graduation June 2017

We had cause for a celebration this week, when our latest group of 0-5k runners completed their 5k run to graduate.  Considering they did it on the hottest June day for 40 years, they did particularly well!

Our latest group of graduates

There was a great turnout of club members to run with the group and cheer them on, then we all retreated to the shade of the Sports Bar afterwards for a well deserved cold drink and celebration, plus of course one of Liza’s delicious cakes!

Helen and Kerry

Many thanks to Helen and Kerry, who did a fantastic job of running this course – despite a broken ankle immediately before it started!!  Thanks also go to all the mentors who helped out on sessions and homework runs, and all the club members involved.  Click on the pictures below to see more – I couldn’t get shots of you all receiving your certificates as you’re just too fast already!!
