List of entries up to and including 20 March 2014: Four Midable Entries

Technical T-Shirt for all series entrants!

This is a great way to grab a bargain as well as compete in a series which will operate in much the same way as the Sexarathon. Every race will have individual prizes in the same way as usual, but in addition those who have entered the series will receive points for how well they finish relative to others in their age division. The winner will get 100 points, second will get 99 etc. At the end of the series there will be prizes for the divisional winners.

January Jog 2014 Results

Sunday 05 January 2014 at 12 noon

Thank you for all the participants and marshals who took part in the January Jog. It was great to see so many people turn out on a cold winter day to support Macmillan Cancer Research. Over £3500 was raised by Ian Kevan and his band of supporters.

Winter Handicap Race 3 – January 2014

Well done to all the competitors and marshals in what was a pretty foul evening to be running. A minor miracle then, that 36 people finished the race with nine of them improving times.

A special mention to Sue Roberts who had the best improvement for non-newbies of 49 seconds; and also to Robin Guy for the nights fastest time of 19:07.

Thank you to The Wheatsheaf for the apres-run hospitality.

Well done to all our competitors and marshals who were at Wheaton Aston. There were some excellent times and performances when, lets face it, the conditions were far from ideal for racing.

Whatever your pace and experience, however and whenever you run, come and join us.

Every Wednesday night, we organise three runs for runners of all standards – although you may find one group meets your needs better than the others. The training section of the website has more information. You don’t need to be a club member straight away, just come along and give it a go! There are various training runs at other times of the week either in Newport, at the Wrekin or the hills of Church Stretton.  There are also special club runs, breakfast runs and a varied programme of social events held through the year. We even have our own club band called Running Wild. We organise or support nine races each year: the January Jog in January, the Lilleshall Monumental in March, the Sheriffhales Shuffle in May, the Newport Carnival 10K in June, the Hinstock 5K in September, the Newport Duathlon in October, the Wrekin Wrecker fell race in November, a Christmas Eve family run  and walk, and the popular Wheaton Aston 10K and fun run in December. Please refer to ‘Our Races’ for more details.       Newport & District Running Club is thankful for the continued support of Ultrasport.
