About: C25k started in 2017 as I had a small child that didn’t sleepso decided to go out at 0430/0500 for some me time!. Got the running bug soon after!
First half marathon in 2018
Brighton Marathon 2019 and a 100k walk
Few virtual courses with Girls the world (5k and 10k programs) and yoga trail running weekends. (Really like guided runs)
Trained for ultra in 2021, Injured (fell down a rabbit hole three weeks out)
Run once  a week with a running club since September 2021.

Love trails, but end up on road on my own through winter, then usually run with someone for longer weekend run but they are injured for the foreseeable so need a winter plan!  Messed around last winter with a 19 mile guided run in the downs and similar 6hr timed loop events. Am currently enjoying a trail self navigation series that happens every year each run circa 6 miles pending getting lost!!  Am motivated but as miles go up much prefer company!

About: Started running at school. Stopped running after I left and a move to Norfolk from London and a desire to live healthier got me running. Love trails rather than Road and completed the Snowdon Trail Marathon this year .hoping the Suffolk trail fest happens again as my all time favourite run event

About: For years I have tried to enjoy running, starting and stopping but to no avail.  However, I have recently discovered that I love running in wild weather and in wild places.  The sunset chase was wonderful. and because of this I would like to join your community. I am 62 and did my first Spartan this year which I also loved.  I am completing another in October.

About: I’m 51yrs old and have been running for around 12yrs. Initially after having got comfortable with short 5km road runs at a reasonable sub 20min pace I extended to the odd 1okm and 1/2 marathon. I’ve completed a few sprint triathlons but was finding none of these particularly rewarding.
Having re-located from East Anglia to Shropshire in 2017 I soon discovered the wonder of hills and trails. I now have a passion for running in the Shropshire hills. No pressure on time other than my self-motivation to feel I’ve got the most out of my time. 1./2 Marathon (The Icing on the Cake) this weekend.

About Putting in miles has helped me balance my hectic weeks out by helping me process as well as that feeling of accomplishment I have after a good run. That feeling is one of the things that gets me back out of the door no matter what the weather is doing.
