Midland Counties Cross Country Championships

Tom Mortimer, after running the previous two weekends for the Great Britain team in Edinburgh and leading the England team to victory in Seville six days earlier, gave an exhibition of running in Nottingham to retain the U20 men's title that he won last year in Loughborough. Expecting a tough race, he set off strongly going to the front of the race at a good pace.

Doynton Hard Half Marathon Results - 21st January 2018

The Doynton Hard Half Marathon is a tough cross country half marathon race. It takes place on footpaths, bridle paths and country lanes thick with mud. Through rivers swollen with winter rain and over hills with wicked climbs and hellish descents, it really is not for the faint hearted or the in experienced novice runner.  

Eight tough Stroudies braved the wet and cold winter elements today and took part.  A big well done to everyone who competed, not nice conditions even on a straight forward course.

Naunton 19 Race Results - 7th January 2018

Today five Stroudies took part in the Naunton 19 mile off-road race.  This challenging race across the beautiful north Cotswold countryside is not for the faint hearted and takes a lot of skill to run.  It took the runners through water logged fields, along lanes, through woods and up and down slippery hills. 

Well done to everybody for finishing in excellent times:
