Trailwalker UK 2016 – Michelle’s Race Report

We'd been training for this for what felt like forever. Walking everywhere, buying kit, planning food, checking routes and making notes on elevations. In our heads we knew it would be a challenge but it's a walk right? How hard can it be? It's just ten checkpoints, each with 10km between them, and we've all … Continue reading Trailwalker UK 2016 – Michelle’s Race Report

Scafell Pike Trail Marathon – Matthew’s Race Report

It all started around Christmas time, when Aaron suggested that we do a variation of the Three Peaks Challenge: doing each as a trail marathon, instead of the usual 24 hours for all three peaks. This seemed like a stupid idea, so naturally I said yes. Suddenly it's the Saturday before the first race, the … Continue reading Scafell Pike Trail Marathon – Matthew’s Race Report

Alton 10 Mile 2016 – Joy’s Race Report

It was a blistering hot day for the Alton 10 Mile Road Race earlier this month - and with a healthy dose of hills thrown in too, this was always going to be a mentally tough course for the runners who turned out in force!

Eastleigh 10k 2016 – Matt’s Race Report

6:15 alarm, Sunday morning, Eastleigh 10k and PB chasing. The line between running and madness seems blurry at best, but here I am, tucking into porridge and coffee, looking for the 14 seconds I needed to go sub-40 for the first time. Eastleigh was my second race as a Crusader, having joined the club in … Continue reading Eastleigh 10k 2016 – Matt’s Race Report

Stubbington 10k 2016 – Carrina’s Race Report

The Stubbington 10k race was amazing in which I achieved my personal best. I'd entered the race previously (as a non-running club member) in 2015, and the support that I received then was nowhere near as encouraging as this year. Over 100 Fareham Crusaders entered and they were all so supportive. On the Thursday before … Continue reading Stubbington 10k 2016 – Carrina’s Race Report
