The 'Run'down - 19th March 2018

Sadly, the 'Beast from the East' returned this weekend and caused a large number of races to be cancelled – most notably for Barrow Runners, this included the Ashby 20 and the Lincoln 10K that many members had trained for. Parkruns went ahead on Saturday, and a few members also managed to get some longer races in before the snow fell.

Barrow Runners Comedy Night – new date, Friday 13th April

Unfortunately the comedy night due to take place in March was cancelled by the Town Hall due to a structural issue, so we are postponing this social event until April. April's 'In The Vic' brings nationally established and up-and-coming comedians to Loughborough for a special mixed-bill featuring Ed Gamble (Mock The Week), Kai Samra and Hayley Ellis (Russell Howard's Good News). If you'd like to attend the 'In the Vic' comedy evening on Friday 13th April at 8.00 pm in the Town Hall, please contact Claire Armitage to reserve your ticket (via Facebook or Ticket prices will be confirmed once we know numbers, but will be £12 each or £10 if we get more than 10 extra members joining us.

Hopefully we have included all members racing over the last week. We always check results from all the races on our club calendar, but if you are racing further afield, please let us know how you got on either on Facebook or to before Sunday night to be included in this week's roundup.
