Green Belt Relay Challenge 2020

On the weekend that would have been our Green Belt Relay organised by @stragglers_running_club we set out on our own 220 mile challenge.
25 runners, 5 countries and 250 miles later looks what we’ve created.
Fi even managed to fit in most of the glory leg on the official Green Belt Relay Route! And Lizzy visited another stage close to home.

We might have missed getting together and the challenges of coordinating and navigating around the Green Belt but at very short notice letter routes were planned and executed – see our results below!
A great example of how our team can come together and deliver a great team event.
Excellent running by all and great to bring everyone together (virtually) with amazing cheer leading from those who couldn’t run. 
Thanks team – for getting organised and joining in. That was fun what’s next?
To the official Green Belt route – we’ll see you in 2021

April 2020

Whilst our group sessions have been postponed we are still in touch with John to keep our solo efforts going.  This can certainly be testing on motivation however our team are still getting out there all be it alone to keep the training up ready for when we can come back together again.

Working from home gifts us the flexibility to run as we feel which means we have been treated so some beautiful spring sunrises & sunsets, blossoms and also wonderful clear views with the sunniest April

26th April 2020 was set to be Charli’s first Marathon attempt taking part in the VLM, sadly this is currently postponed however still motivated as ever Charli got on out there and hit a PB 13.1 miles!

Charli’s PB inspiring more running with David heading out in the rain to secure his 10km PB


At the start of lock down Frank started his own little alphabet project and sent us this motivating message to keep us going to the end of the month…. STAY ACTIVE – created from his local alphabet street work!




Clearly inspired Ken has started his own challenge…. still waiting on B!img_6555

And if you are running around Tooting Common keep a little eye out for these messages to brighten up your walk / run… I believe there are 125 in total!
