New Year's Day Success for Chasers in Hyde Park 10K
A fabulous start to the New Year for Chasers at the Serpentine Hyde Park 10K. Fiona Russell, Jane Nodder and Andrea Sanders-Reece each topped their age categories and together won the women's team prize. An excellent turn out of runners and supporters plus sunshine, in this well organised annual event, helped make the day memorable.
Emails to Mornington Chasers Running Club
Unfortunately I cannot currently access emails sent to Mornington Chasers so, if you have sent an email to the club and not received a response this is why. Hopefully normal service will be resumed soon and apologies for any problems this may cause you. If you are interested in joining our club, please see our Membership page on this site. If you decide to join us for a trial session, please introduce yourself to one of our club captains when you arrive, this is important to ensure someone watches out for you. New members need to be able to run for at least 20 minutes without stopping.

25th Anniversary Picnic
Warmth and sunshine reflected the mood of our 25th Anniversary Picnic in Regents Park on Sunday 24th July. It was wonderful to see so many members, both current and from our 25 years, enjoying the afternoon and sharing stories. Our original chairman, Johnny Roe (who remains an active member of the Club both on the committee and as a runner),gave a brief speech, highlighting a few memories then he and Sarah Mayne cut the splendid birthday cake. Food in abundance and Champagne contributed to the excellent spirit of the day.
The picnic was preceded by the Summer League event - one of the most enjoyable events in the race calendar where everyone is welcome, indeed encouraged, to run whatever your age or standard.
Many, many thanks to everyone who helped to make this such a splendid day - from the cooks, drink buyers, servers, picnic providers through to marshalls and race organisation team who set up the course and ran the event. Your help was so very much appreciated.
