Middlesex Young Athletes League, Hamburg and Southampton marathons and Solitudelauf half marathon

A few people ran in races away, or, in some cases, very far away, from London.  Highlights include the Middlesex Young Athletes League, Watford Open meeting, the Hamburg and Southampton marathons, and the Solitudelauf half marathon. 

Heathside runs the London Marathon

Months of hard training and long runs finally came to an end on Sunday for at least 42 Heathsiders, who ran in the London marathon.  Cheered on by Heathside’s bobble hat rabblers and the unique London public, there were great performances and PBs, and an unforgettable day was had by all.

Sign up for Heathside Track and Field Champs part one - 2nd May
DATE: 24/04/2017

On Tuesday 2nd May we'll be having a club championship evening at the Finsbury Park track.  This event does require some organisation, and some volunteers to help out on the night would be brilliant (eg weary marathoners).

Online entry is recommended to reduce queueing and angst on the night (yours and the volunteers').

Heathside hosting* Finsbury parkrun, 29 April
DATE: 17/04/2017

Most weeks, we have a load of runners at this free local timed 5k, so it's a great chance for us to:

  • support the event (parkrun relies on each of its runners pitching in and helping to organise once in a while)
  • promote our running club to the local community
Hill and off road training on Saturdays.
DATE: 16/04/2017

Join us on Saturday mornings (makes a change from parkrun!)
