Mud, beer and revolution #wheresbob

The summer and autumn race season is over which means it’s time to get some winter miles in to build that aerobic base, some cross country strength training in to injury proof and crank up your potential top speed and some beer training so you don’t embarrass yourself at the xmas party. Handily EVRC is to here help with all of that.


Dates for your diary.

Saturday 11th November: Cross Country Race. North Midlands League R2. Glebe Park Corby.

Where: Glebe Park Corby.

Start time: 13:25 Ladies, 13:55 Men.

The Run by EVRC 2017… and run!!! (Notts AAA Summer League R5 the final at Teversal)

The Run by EVRC had another successful year. We sold out, the sun made a little appearance and nobody died, though Gary did have to go find a nice dark safe place afterwards to de-stress. As ever race organiser Brian did a brilliant job in making the race happen and herding the rest of us into the right places.

Bob, Newark and Pairs too.(plus a hairy helmet)

Bob Graham.

We’ll go into more detail at a slightly later date when the Fell Goats return and provide a review, but in summary: Its really frickin hard and an awesome thing to have on your fell (any) running CV… its a 66 mile, 27,000 ft circuit of 42 of the highest peaks in the English Lake District within 24 hours. Lots of info can be found here . Neil and Kieran join the EVRC list of successful Bob Graham runners (Nick Lander, Nick Evans, Phil Pittson, Gary Tudbury)

Welcome! Run. Beer. Chips.

Over the past few weeks our EVRC beginners group have become signed up members of EVRC (thankyou to Kevin and all that helped) and we’ve had lots of new faces edging our membership within sniffing distance of 100. Though should we get to a 100 we’ll run out of room in the changing rooms and it’ll be a handicap race to see who gets a peg and who has to get changed in the bin store out back. Welcome new EVRC members!
