As it is the first Monday of a summer month, we will be meeting at Kingston Gate Car Park of Richmond Park tonight at 7pm. All runs will be within the leafy boundaries of Richmond Park. If anyone needs a lift to or from the park, post a message in the forum.
Who's up for going round and round and round and round in an oval shape tonight? At Kingsmeadow Athletics Stadium, 422A Kingston Road, Kingston-upon-Thames, KT1 3PB?
Tonight's session for everyone is a 5x 800m then 200m set. The 200m won't be sprints, more of a 5k race pace but focusing on the stride element and not tying up.
Nice and easy all-in-all and I will detail recoveries later. Don't forget your £3.40 for track entry, your wrist based timing devices and please allow 10 minutes for a collective warm up if not running down. We'll aim for a start of the actual session around 7:30pm.
It's always good to have the July Handicap on a Monday as it gives us an opportunity to introduce it to newcomers and those that do not normally run on a Wednesday. Of the 40 runners, there were 7 'first timers' competing last evening, along with Don Anderson from Belgrave, who I invited to run as a guest. He has ben working on repairing our Race Clock and was responsible for supplying the replacement we used last night. We also welcomed back Lindsay Baldwin and Julie Rickard who haven't run it for some time.
First it was Green Belt, then came Horton and Nonsuch, now the River Relays are fast approaching and we're taking names for those who want to take part this year. They are to be held on Sunday 6th September starting at 9am and the route is changng slightly from previous years. For those unaware of this event it is a 5 stage relay race which this year will start at Boveney Church in Windsor and follow the River Thames a distance of 26.2 miles to the Hawker Centre in Kingston.
As with Green Belt Relay the River Relays is a navigation race and you will be given a set of route instructions to follow for your stage which you must carry with you.

Thanks once again for everyone who came along and took part in the biggest and best Horton Relays yet. We hope you really enjoyed it and look forward to seeing you again next year.

To all club members who helped host a record attendance of 65 teams at the Horton Relays, a big thank you! It was an astounding turnout.
Thank you to everybody who ran tonight, due to the record turnout the results and data entry are taking a lot longer than usual (as you'd expect) but these will be emailed to club contacts as soon as they are available as well as posted on our website at 26point2.co.uk - they are still being compiled as we speak and may go on into the early hours. :)
We will endeavour to publish accurate results so the results will be provisional but we have video of the finish so we can rectify/clarify any discrepancies had.
Regarding team prizes, we will make sure all team and individual prizes are brought along to Nonsuch Relays (hosted by Dave Denton) next Wednesday if you are in attendance.
If unable to attend please get in touch and we'll arrange getting the prizes to you as soon as possible one way or another.
Don't forget that this weekend is the return leg of the Elmbridge Road Runners mob match at Bushy parkrun. Please wear club vests and also check that your parkrun profile has 26.2 RRC down as your club which will make life easier to figure out which of us had the most runners and who ran quicker.
Hope to see a good turn out, see you all Saturday!
