2. Length of club membership (must have been a member for at least 12 months)
3. Service to the club (marshalling, tea, volunteering, etc)
4. Participation in the club (e.g. racing in club events such as xc, summer league, athletics, attending social events).

Our spring training schedules are now available on the website. We’ve got a London and a Brighton marathon schedule plus a half marathon schedule targeting Paddock Wood. See our coaching blog for full details including a list of all the preparatory races you should sign up for to get you into peak condition.
Looking at the photos on facebook it looked like a lovely crisp Saturday morning on the Heath for the Beginners parkrun. Well done to all those who did their first 5km event and hopefully more (and warmer) to follow.
Well done to Vincent Guillaume for completing the 73km ultra in Saint-Etienne, a huge effort.
Also a great effort from Eamon Byrne at the weekend, who completed two marathons within 48 hours. Well done Eamon.
