Our Members get up to all sorts of things throughout the year that inspire the rest of us. Here’s a flavour of their most recent escapades:-

Our regular race reports provide great accounts of individuals and groups competing in Parkruns , 10Ks , Half and Full Marathons not to mention Fell Races as well as Mountain Marathons / Orienteering events.

Our annual bursary helps to fund a range of activities. Recently two Members took on two very different Marathon-related challenges that are truly inspirational:

  • In sport there are lots of stories of how Coaches inspire their pupils to achieve great things. In our case though, John our Training Officer (and accomplished triathlete) has not only inspired others to run faster over the last year but describes how this has transformed his own performances.
  • One of those inspired this year is Eva’s partner Alex whose chance conversation with fellow Club runners and keen triathletes at Markeaton Park in July led to a somewhat hectic Autumn!

Finally, one of our most recent club highlights was Brian running his 200th Parkrun and decided to celebrate it by setting a new PB with a little help from John as his personal pace-setter!

All proof (if needed) of the value that a Club can bring to achieving your running goals.
