Its been another busy month for the Harriers, with the arrival of spring bringing lighter evenings and lots of running events. Here's a mostly pictorial round-up of the whats been happening this spring time;
Couch to 5k group Graduate with a parkrun and cakes!
After nine weeks of coaching this years couch to 5k group, officially finished their training with a celebratory parkrun at Torbay, with medals and cakes baked by Linda
This was also a special day for Mandy, who by careful planning managed to coincide her 100th park run with a milestone birthday.
And in true harriers style this was followed by a good old knees-up in the evening!
Cycle Ride to Moreton Hampstead
They do say that key to building fitness is a bit of cross-training so we put the wheels in motion this month with a 27 mile cycle ride, along the picturesque Stover trail to Moreton Hampstead
Naturally a pub lunch was involved!
Park Run Tourism
Sarah has done an excellent job motivating us all to spread our wings a little further and try out some different park runs.......
Torquay ( Australia !)
In case you are wondering, as well as eating cake, going to the pub, partying and galivanting around to park runs, we also do some serious running and there has been quite a lot of action on that front too....

Sarah completed the London Landmarks Half-Marathon in an impressive 2:09 (and 10 mile PB on the Granite Way).
