Hope you have all managed to keep running in this dreadful weather.
Firstly, a massive well done to all of you who completed the Virtual London Marathon however and wherever you managed it. Kudos goes to all those completing your first marathon. 26.2 miles is a long distance without support along the way.
Well done also to everyone who entered the "Run the World" Challenge. We were 12th overall, having reached Switzerland. Top strider was Nicky Whitehead with 400K with Lisa Botterill and Nikki Fraser hot on his heels.
Don't forget there are still spaces on our training runs so keep an eye on that and any cancellations. I have also put our Charity Halloween run on there - suggested donations to Leicester Outdoor Pursuits Centre £5 adult and £2.50 children. Open to Striders/Flyers and families. Enter now as there are a limited number of medals and once they are gone they are gone. Prizes are also up for best adult and best child fancy dress.
