Surrey Cross Country League 2016-17

The temperature has now dipped below 30C, and as the deer begin to rut in Richmond Park, the minds of Barnes Runners begin the slow transition from the dusty road and track to the cooling muddy paths and parks of the Surrey Cross Country Leagues….

Virgin Money London Marathon – 2016

One of the distinctive features of this year’s spring marathon season has been the strong work ethic that has bound all those who prepared for it… permeating every windswept, rain-drenched interval training session, underpinning every build-up race and every tedious Sunday run. 2016 has seen many a middling-to-mediocre runner sharpen their resolve, file down their corns …

Please keep fit this Christmas

We didn’t win the mob match on 2 November. I almost forgot to tell you! The turnout included 15 Ealing Eagles, 16 West 4 Harriers, and 5 Barnes Runners.  West 4 retained the trophy.  Pairwise mobmatching, we sort of drew with both West 4 and Ealing, our first two Barnes finishers being sandwiched by one …

On Saturday November 2, at Wormwood Scrubs parkrun, West 4 will meet challenging mobs from Ealing, Barnes, and perhaps also Queens Park Harriers.  Featuring a confusing mix of …

Barnes Runner needs a house to sit in or short term let

Apologies for the shameless abuse of the email list. As many of you are aware Martin and I are renovating our house and have a baby due in 3-4 weeks. We had hoped to move back to our house on 15th September, but this is not going to be possible. Therefore, we are looking for …
