Brighton Marathon 2018

Good news for any members keen to run a marathon in 2018, who may have missed out on a VLM place. We have access to 10 guaranteed places for Brighton Marathon where general entry has already closed. There are free entries available for runners who meet certain performance criteria but most runners can expect to pay the normal entry fee. Please check the link for more information and let me know if you are interested in taking a club place.

Christmas and New Year opening at Archway.

Archway Sports Centre will be closed on Tuesday 26th December, so there will be NO official Club sessions that day.

The centre will reopen for us on Thursday 28th December for anyone who is keen to run, but please check with your usual group leader to ensure that they will be organising a session.

Normal sessions for 2018 will resume from Tuesday 2nd January.

On behalf of the Club I would like to wish all members and their families a very happy and healthy Christmas and New Year.
